Elizabeth Spencer, a bonded winery established in 1998, is based in Rutherford, Napa Valley. Proprietors Elizabeth Pressler and Spencer Graham, a husband-wife winemaking partnership, have forged strong long-term relationships with some of the most well-respected grape growers in Napa Valley, Sonoma Coast and Mendocino County and purchase fruit from the same premiere vineyards from vintage to vintage. Working closely with these vineyard partners, they have established mutual high standards in grape farming practices and have maintained the highest level of quality and consistency.
Elizabeth Spencer holds a firm belief that the best wine is made by focusing on the absolute pursuit of growing superior grapes. We uphold the philosophy of “meticulous minimalism” or that “less is more” when making wine. Elizabeth Spencer wines are vinified in small individual lots using classical hands-on methods. The results are delicious, balanced and approachable wines with great purity of flavor.
Elizabeth Spencer produces five wines available in national distribution to restaurants and wine shops. Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, the winery’s flagship wine, was first made in 1998. Small appellation-specific bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford, Mount Veeder, Howell Mountain and Spring Mountain of up to 200 cases are available only through our Wine Club, at the Tasting Room and on the winery's website.
