B Cellars is another one of our “favorites” because they like to do things a little differently. Many Napa Valley wineries follow a strict set of rules when it comes to harvesting grapes. They like to harvest from one vineyard on one terroir. These wineries believe this is the best way to produce the purest wine. B Vineyards likes to bend these rules….a lot! They believe that blending wines from different vineyards, terroirs, and even varietals creates unique layers of flavor that are unattainable through the traditional methods. B Cellars borrows this method from the French. The “assemblage” process means that the wine maker creates their “gran vin” by selecting and blending the best lots, creating the most unique, flavorful, and creative wine imaginable. B Cellars combines this traditional French winemaking practice and adds their own modern methods, producing wines that literally feature each of Napa’s unique terroirs.
Why We Love B Cellars
B Cellars loves food and wine as much as we do! Their multi-vineyard, multi-varietal winemaking strategy is not only unique but pairs beautifully with so many dishes. You’ll enjoy this fabulous wine in a beautiful setting as well. B Cellars sits on 11 acres of rolling hills with regal views of the Vaca Mountains. They offer a variety of tasting experiences including the:
- Oakville Trek: This 90-minute experience includes an escorted tour of the culinary gardens, production facilities, and wine caves. The tour includes a custom pairing of their Flagship and Reserve wines with their seasonal “B-Bites”.
- Private Heritage Excursion: If you’re an avid wine connoisseur, this private wine tasting tour is for you. The tasting takes place in the beautiful Beckstoffer Heritage room, located in their wine cave. The wine and food pairing includes their Beckstoffer Heritage wines coupled with cheese, charcuterie, and appetizers from their B Cellars kitchen.
- Chef’s Garden Pairing: We love this farm-to-table pairing because it includes a full four-course wine and food pairing. Wine comes from their Flagship Blended and Reserve wines and food is prepared using ingredients from their seasonal garden and neighboring ranches. Enjoy this pairing at their outdoor garden table or inside in the Hospitality House.
- Sojourn: This tasting is perfect for “in between” meals. B Cellars pairs their Flagship portfolio with locally made cheeses for a simple, perfectly portioned tasting experience.
B Cellars’ wines are crowd pleasers. They will add depth, distinct character, and layers of flavor to any meal.
