The Regusci Winery, located in the heart of California's Napa Valley, produces a variety of wines, and a visit to the winery can be a great way to learn about the industry. You can taste wines, purchase bottles, and enjoy the beautiful views of the region during your time here.
Making a reservation to visit the family-owned winery can get you access to the gardens and vineyards of the estate. You can find out more about how the wines are grown and transformed into wine, and you can go behind the scenes if you sign up for a tour. The Winery Tour includes a walk through areas of the family's working ranch that's been a significant part of the Regusci legacy.
Gretna Regusci first purchased the land where the winery now sits in 1932. He was a true farmer in every sense of the word, and he grew a variety of crops and raised cattle in addition to making homemade wine. His son, Angelo, took over the ranch in the 1960s and began planting Bordeaux varietals. Angelo's son, Jim, formally established the Regusci Winery in 1996, allowing the family to concentrate on growing premium estate wines.
If you're touring California's wine country, set aside an afternoon to spend at the Regusci Winery. You can taste four of the current release wines in the Tasting Room, which overlooks the vineyard and the historic Stags Leap District, which is an official American Viticultural Area just north of Napa.
