Seven years ago, a few wine-loving friends with diverse skills and talents began making
wine. "Pretty good wine," we said in year one.
"Delicious!" said our friends and families by year two. "Fabulous!" said random people
we met and poured our wines for in year three. And so, season by season, we immersed
ourselves in the fine art of winemaking - honing our craft, mastering the science,
embracing every little thing about the process and the experience. Who knew when we
first began that the joy of making great wine would so capture our vino-passionate
hearts and never let go. On a beautiful Bay Area Saturday, after tasting our luscious 2012
Carneros Pinot Noir, we looked around at each other and agreed, "Let's do this."
And, Old County Cellars was born.
Our mission: Keep it small and keep it local. We source our hand-picked grapes from
growers we call friends in and around San Mateo County, Santa Cruz Mountains, Napa,
El Dorado and Chiles valleys. We are involved in every drop produced by Old County
Cellars. Our commitment: Only make wines that we love to drink. Our promise:
That you'll love our wines as much as we do. Salute!
