Burgess Cellars has been family owned and creating wines with mountain distinction since 1972 on Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. When our founder Tom Burgess purchased the 1870’s era winery in 1972 he established himself as a pioneer of mountain side wineries. At the time, there were only approximately 2 dozen wineries in operation in the whole of Napa Valley and he saw the potential of mountain vineyards to produce wines that evoke the French concept of terroir: that the grapes, and thus wines, should reflect the vineyard’s soil, exposure, and overall micro-climate. Today, the second generation is building on Tom’s legacy. Brothers Steven Burgess and James Burgess took over as President and Vineyard Manager respectively. In 2013, Winemaker Kelly Woods, a UC Davis graduate, completed the new team, and together the trio has fined-tuned the vineyards and cellar to highlight mountain grapes. The new direction of the estate is taking Burgess Cellars to the pinnacle of Napa Valley wine quality. At almost 1000 feet, far over the valley floor, we produce wines from our two estate hillside vineyards, Winery Ranch Vineyard and Haymaker Vineyard. Our hillside grapes tend to be smaller, with more concentrated flavors and tannins, varietal intensity and excellent aging properties. A visit to Burgess Cellars begins with a panoramic vista that offers real perspective on the Napa Valley. One can see the length of the Mayacamas range, from Calistoga to the hills beyond Napa. We present our wines in our cellar, where you are surrounded by barrels. Please contact us to make a reservation. Tastings are by appointment only. We would love to share our wines with you!

This is a must see for boutique wines. They do not produce the volume of the larger producers, but they make so great wine. To really appreciate the wine making in Napa, you have to see the smaller wineries.

Anniversary trip, and great winery. Our host Mike was awesome, and very knowledgeable of the wine and the location it was made. I recommend it, and can't wait to take our friends.

When you walk into the tasting room, it's like going through a time tunnel and seems like you are in the 70's which is refreshing. Wines were good and super reasonable. Amazing views of the valley as they are about 1,200 feet level on Howell...More
