Our story starts five million years ago when a small sandpiper wandered along the shore, seeing a world we will never know. The tiny tracks the sandpiper left behind were covered with sediment and fossilized by the geological forces that created what is now the Porter Family Vineyards in the Coombsville region of Napa Valley.
From our hillside vineyards and underground winery, our Family makes small amounts of beautifully hand-crafted wines—each one carrying the unique signature of this place.
We retain the fossilized footprints of the sandpiper found on our property as a reminder of the incredible history of our winegrowing site, as we turn our heads to the future and the latest in winemaking arts to craft our special wines.
Our tasting room is located in within our 17000 square ft underground winery. Weather permitting we have tastings outdoors in the vineyard taking in the tremendous valley views. Come see the Valley from our point of view.View from Tasting Room: In Cave Tasting Room/Outdoor valley views
