Yountville, California wines that pair well with food
Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours
Page is known for wines that pair beautifully with food—and there’s a very good reason for that.
Before becoming a winemaker, Bryan Page filled numerous roles in the food and wine business, from bartender and waiter to executive chef and sommelier. He also spent time sampling wine in Bordeaux and other French wine regions.
One day in St. Émilion he paired a simple macaroon with a glass of the Bordeaux wine-based apéritif, Lillet, and was struck by inspiration: he would return to California to craft a wine blend that combined Bordeaux styling with Napa Valley terroir and fruit character. The result: the 1997 Page Proprietary Red.
You can sample Page and its related labels, Le Nu and Revolver, at the “Yountville Tasting Station” (Cornerstone Cellars shares the building).
It’s a friendly, welcoming tasting room where you can sit down, listen to laid-back Johnny Cash tunes, and indulge in wine-and-chocolate pairings. From here you can stroll to some of the most written-about restaurants in the country, such as The French Laundry and Bistro Jeanty.
Page wines are handcrafted all the way: after picking, the grapes are hand-sorted; the basket press is hand-cranked; the bottling is done by hand; and the specialty wines are even hand-labeled.
