Joseph Phelps Vineyards is a family-owned Napa Valley winery committed to crafting world class, estate grown wines. Founded in 1973 when Joe Phelps purchased a former cattle ranch in Spring Valley near St. Helena, the winery now controls and farms nearly 375 acres of vines in St. Helena, Stags Leap District, Oakville, Rutherford, Oak Knoll District, South Napa Valley and Carneros. Phelps is best known for its flagship blend of red Bordeaux varietals, Insignia, first produced in 1974. Awarded Wine Spectator’s “Wine of the Year” in 2005, Insignia is widely regarded as a qualitative benchmark for California winemaking.
Our wines include Insignia, Cabernet Sauvignon from Backus Vineyard in Oakville, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Syrah and Eisrébe.
Please note: Joseph Phelps Vineyards has embarked on a major renovation project at the Guest Center in St. Helena. Construction is targeted for completion during Spring 2015. Join us at the Joseph Phelps Temporary Guest Center and experience the winery's grounds like never before during our “Year in the Vines.”
