Our story begins with a piece of land, a family passionate about wine, and a community of friends and partners who helped bring Cakebread Cellars to life. Since founding the winery in 1973, we’ve set out to create quality wines that pair best with good food and good company. Our wines reflect the personalities of our estate vineyards as well as the spirit of our entire team. We’re proud to share these wines—from our family to yours.
For nearly 50 years, we've been crafting exceptional quality wines and hosting guests in the heart of Napa Valley. Discover our journey from Cakebread’s Garage in Oakland to the special spot we’re proud to call home in Rutherford.Explore Our History
