Four miles northeast of downtown St. Helena, Andrew Lane winery doubles as the personal residence of owner Andrew Dickson. Established in 1978 by Andrew’s father Dave, the winery is now a professional 2,000-case business run by chief winemaker Andrew and his brother Lane. The company specializes in unusual “fruit-forward” varietals such as Gamay Noir (similar to a Pinot Noir). Free tastings are available by appointment and are held in a small, garage-like tasting room decorated with original artwork. With enough advance notice, Andrew will also serve his guests a breakfast of homemade Cabernet Franc jelly on freshly baked English muffins.
