190 Camino Oruga, Napa, CA 94558, United States

Despite an exterior that resembles a nondescript storage facility, this winery’s tasting room has a surprisingly romantic interior with dim lighting, candelabras, and white draperies. With encouragement from wine mogul Robert Mondavi, owner Vic Bourassa decided to grow only the grapes from his favorite region, Bordeaux, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The winery is also one of few in Napa to adopt the Spanish port-making system known as solera, which blends new and old vintages for a more complex product. Tastings are available by appointment and include a trip to the nearby barrel cooperage Seguin Moreau.
