Welcome to Saddleback Cellars!
Saddleback Cellars was founded by acclaimed winemaker Nils Venge. Nils got his start in Napa in 1970, and has been creating award-winning wines at Saddleback since 1981. Known as the "King of Cab," he is the first American to achieve a 100-point score from wine critic Robert Parker Jr. for his production of the 1985 Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
Saddleback sits on quiet Money Road, a dead-end lane in the Oakville District of the Napa Valley AVA. Renowned for its quality Cabernet Sauvignon, it is the perfect home for the King of Cab. While our first love is Cabernet, Saddleback produces a plethora of varietals from our estate vineyard and select vineyards thoroughout Napa Valley. Some of our favorites include Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Zinfandel. We produce even smaller lots exclusively for our Posse Wine Club, including: Albarino, Vermentino, Sangiovese, Charbono, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Teroldego.
Stop by, enjoy the vineyard views and the intimacy of tasting wines at a small, family-owned winery on a quiet lane. Click on the "Visit" tab or call to make an appointment today.
