Teachworth Estate

Welcome to Teachworth Winery

For over 20 years we have been growing Cabernet Sauvignon from our two quaint hillside vineyards which are nestled in the ravines of Diamond Mountain District in the Napa Valley just south of Calistoga.  Our  Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are organically grown on an undulating two-acre vineyard lying between 700 and 850 feet in elevation on Quail Mountain, an adjacent foothill of Diamond Mountain. Our varying and distinctively different soil and sun conditions allow us to produce a very unique – 100% estate grown – wine from our boutique estate. Manzanita Hill, the lower portion, contains more vines and gets intense afternoon sun on its chalky slopes while Rattlesnake Ridge, the terraced upper portion, has deeper soils and shifted exposure. The combination of the two gives our finished wine a complexity not normally seen from such a small vineyard. Our estate wine is aged for ~22 months in new French Oak barrels, then hand-bottled at the winery and aged an additional year in the bottle before release.

We invite you to come visit and see for yourself. Please call 707-942-8432 to book an appointment for a tour and wine tasting.

Our current release is our 2014 vintage of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon.  2014 is proving to be one of the greatest growing years that Napa Valley has seen and our offing from our classic 2 small estate vineyards is no exception.  This vintage produced grapes of uncompromising quality and an abundant crop as well.

Harvest at Teachworth Winery

According to Napa Valley Grapegrowers, the 2018 growing season started as “picture-perfect” and the famous winemaking region  geared up for an expected “landmark harvest”.  Our estate vineyards in Calistoga are following in step with the rest of the Napa Valley. We were  extremely optimistic about the quality of fruit on the vine and the 2018 vintage and we were very excited as the harvest made it’s way into the barrel.  We think 2018 will be a stunning vintage.

It is a beautiful quiet time to be in the Napa Valley. We hope you’ll visit us and experience fall in the Napa Valley.  It’s a perfect time of year to enjoy our Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon. Please call and make an appointment for a tour and wine  tasting.
