Franciscan has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Napa Valley. Founded over three decades ago, wine industry revolutionaries Raymond Duncan and Justin Meyer shaped the winery’s beginnings. In 1985, renowned vintner Agustin Huneeus took over the reins, leading the winery to greatness through innovation and a commitment to small-lot winemaking.
Today, Director of Winemaking Janet Myers is preserving the winery’s legacy while leading it into the future. “We inherited a craftsman’s ethic here: work with nature, work in small lots, innovate. Our uniqueness depends on the details,” she says.
Enjoy the beauty and uniqueness that is Franciscan - a personalized tour, tasting and dinner for four prepared by Franciscan's in-house chef. Take home 3 bottles of Cuvee Sauvage and 3 bottles of Magnificat to enjoy later in the evening at your overnight stay at the Franciscan House.
Please contact Randi Reistad to arrange Franciscan visit. Offered by appointment only, subject to availability, 6 week notice required. Expires 12/31/2013.
