Napa Wine Company
Oakville, California Multi-Winery Wine Tasting
Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours
The complex roots of the Napa Wine Company date back to 1877 and are intertwined with Napa Valley history.
The story begins with two adjacent wineries founded fifteen years apart: the Brun & Chaix Nouveau Medoc Winery (1877) and the Madonna Winery (1892). Over the decades the two wineries frequently changed hands and were ultimately combined.
In 1993, the Pelissa family—long-time Napa residents—bought the property. While they produce their own wine under the Napa Wine Company label, they also run a state-of-the-art custom crush facility for boutique wineries that include Adastra Wines, Pahlmeyer, and Michael Pozzan.
A visit here puts you in the center of all this history, including the original 1877 and 1892 buildings (architecturally united in 1977).
Even better, the tasting room gives you a unique opportunity to try not only the excellent wines of the Napa Wine Company, but those of the smaller and much sought-after labels made here. You’ll get to select 5 wines for tasting from a larger menu of 10 wines (the menu changes weekly).
The 1877 Brun & Chaix Nouveau Medoc Winery on this site was only the ninth winery bonded by the State of California.
