Redmon Wines has grown from a home winemaking project in 1999 to producing wines that are receiving as high as 97 point ratings today. Below you'll find some of the things that make our wines unique:
Each year we produce no more than 1,000 cases of wine. Our signature Redmon Cabernet Sauvignon, is limited to about 300 cases each year. To put things in perspective, each year the Napa Valley as a whole produces millions cases!
We like making our wine in small quantities. Our hands do the work, not large production lines. For example, each fall we hand-sort the fruit from our vineyard. We pick out raisins and anything that is not the perfect fruit. We do this ourselves, and we do it twice!
Best of all, because we are small, we have the opportunity to genuinely connect with our customers. Newcomers love to hear Our Story, and we love to hear about the journey that brought them to us. Together, we form friendships, and the Redmon Wine family grows.
World class wines:
Right from the beginning we made the choice to create wine of the highest quality. That means no shortcuts. French oak barrels, the best fruit, and winemaking practices that result in a truly hand-crafted product.
To increase the concentration, complexity, and wine quality of our fruit, we cut the historic yield of our vineyard in half! Each summer we do a “green drop,” meaning we cut off every other cluster of fruit. This improves quality because the available nutrients go into half as much fruit as they would otherwise.
Mother Nature helps out as well. Our vineyard located on the St. Helena bench contains dry, rocky soil from the mountains and lush, volcanic soil from the valley floor. This unique soil combination results in elegant, softer cabernets of superb quality.
Sold by Word of Mouth:
The best things in life don’t come easy. Because we are small, we sometimes go unnoticed by visitors to the valley. That’s okay. Those who find us remember, and tell their friends and family. In fact, nearly all our wine sales can be traced back to customers we’ve met personally.
We don’t sell though conventional outlets, and we don’t sell out-of-state. But we would love for you to Contact Us, so we can chat more about our winery. Whether you come to visit us, or purchase from home, Redmon Wines welcomes you to the family.

Tasting Room Size
Tasting Room Atmosphere
Just across the courtyard from the Redmon Ghost Winery, is a quaint Wine Country Farmhouse. Purchased along with the Ghost Winery, this house was once part of the Sunny Saint Helena Winery, the first winery built after Prohibition. This home was moved from the center of town in Saint Helena to the Redmon's property over two decades ago.
Music in Tasting
We are hard at work making this home a warm and inviting place. Recently we re-landscaped the entire property buy added lighting, built a beautiful rock wall, added trees and new green grass sitting areas. There is nothing like sitting out under the umbrella in the warm summer and spring days sipping a cool glass of chardonnay or enjoying our red wines with a plate of sharp cheese, fresh black fruits or grapes, and rich chocolate treats!
