Since 1989, the growing of our Napa Valley Estate Wines reflects a determination to pursue excellence in our vineyard and in the winery, to farm with sensitivity to the environment and to celebrate life. We believe that the vineyard and the growing season define each vintage of Clark~Claudon Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon. Hence, each vintage is a statement of season and the beauty of our vineyard environment.
With thirty-eight years experience in the wine industry, our Clark-Claudon family also knows that great wines are produced through a combination of art, passion & science in both the vineyard & the winery. Thus, we use minimal intervention, state of the art practices to passionately create our wines. This results in wines known for their elegance, beautiful aromas, full-bodied richness, perfect balance and lingering finish.
Our intent remains, to produce exceptional, Estate
Grown Cabernet Sauvignon & Wild Iris Sauvignon Blanc that celebrates warm and playful moments, as we share that age old passion for life, great wine, family & friends.

Tasting Room Size
Tasting Room Atmosphere
We have three tasting options. The first 2 are by appointment only. We enjoy meeting our visitors at the vineyard. It is a very rural 117 acre estate with 17 planted acres. We sit on the vineyard cottage deck with our visitors to chat, taste Clark-Claudon wine and enjoy paired artisan cheese, fruit & bread. From there we walk or drive in the vineyard to learn more about where the wine is "made." The views from the top are beautiful!
from Tasting Room:
We can meet in a private tasting room where we make our wine. This tasting, if pre-arranged, can include a barrel tasting.
We also have a tasting room in Napa; Vintners Collective on Main St. No appointment is necessary and our wines can be purchased there.
From the top of the vineyard the rural view is expansive. While tasting you are surrounded by a beautiful private rural setting. At the winery there is a view of the western Napa Valley mountains.
Our tasting is personally geared towards the interest & questions of the customer. While hiking in the vineyard grape growing techniques are explained. Wine making is dicussed while tasting on the vineyard cottage deck or while visiting the winery.
artisan cheese, bread, fruit can be included for vineyard visits
