Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours


St. Supéry oak tree and farm houseSt. Supéry is owned by the Skalli family of France, which entered the wine business in the 1920s.
Owner, Robert Skalli joined the family business in 1974 at age 24, working primarily in the sunny wine region of Languedoc.
St. Supéry winery gallery and reserve tasting roomsOn a California visit, he noted the similarities of climate and terroir between Napa Valley and the Languedoc—and resolved to create a great Napa wine. In 1982 he bought property in Rutherford, and later opened St. Supéry Vineyards & Winery.
St. Supery demonstration gardenSt. Supéry is a “super” place to visit, offering many diversions. You can choose between a basic tasting at the spacious ground floor bar, or the Reserve tasting in a luxuriously-decorated room on the second floor.
You can take a self-guided tour (be sure to ask for a map); learn about aroma and other aspects of wine in the free education center; walk through the vineyards in front of the property; enjoy the gardens in season; and tour the barrel room. In addition, every few months a new art exhibit goes on display.

Fascinating Fact:
