Welcome to Saddleback Cellars!
Open Daily 10am-4pm by reservation only
Saddleback Cellars was founded in 1978 by acclaimed winemaker Nils Venge. Known as the "King of Cab," he is the first American to achieve a 100-point score on his 1985 vintage of Reserve Cabernet, granted by wine critic Robert Parker Jr.
Nils' Cabs still command 90+ point reviews.
Saddleback is now much the same as it was when Nils founded it; sitting off the Oakville Crossroad on quiet Money Road, a dead-end lane in the lauded Oakville District of the Napa Valley AVA. While our first love is Cabernet, which is produced from our 14-acre estate fruit, we also produce unique varietals from select vineyards throughout Wine Country. During a visit, you’ll taste through our small-lot, handcrafted wines, including Sangiovese, Vermentino, Montepulciano, Petit Verdot and more.
