Welcome to Saddleback Cellars!
Saddleback Cellars was founded by acclaimed winemaker Nils Venge in the heart of Napa Valley. Nils got his start in Napa Valley in 1970 and has been creating award-winning wines at Saddleback since 1981. He is known as the "King of Cabs" due to being the first American to receive a 100-point score from wine-critic extraordinaire Robert Parker Jr. for making a 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon.
Saddleback sits on quiet Money Road, a dead-end lane in the Oakville District of the Napa Valley AVA, a renowned region known for its quality Cabernet Sauvignon vines. While our first love is Cabernet, we make a variety of wonderful wines both from our estate vineyard here on property and from the best vines around the valley. Some of these include; Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Zinfandel – and even smaller lots, made especially for our Posse Wine Club, which include: Albarino, Vermentino, Sangiovese, Charbono, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc to name of few.
Stop by, enjoy the vineyard views, the wine and the intimacy of tasting wines at a small, family-owned winery on a tree-lined lane.
