Bethel Heights is a family and a place, bound together by love and time. The vineyard was established in 1977 by the Casteel-Dudley- Webb family.
Now forty years later, five cousins who grew up knowing Bethel Heights as their backyard playground have taken their places as co-owners, co-workers, and stewards of this place. Above all else, we seek to grow our grapes and make our wine sustainably, without diminishing the life we found here.
Just east of the city of Napa, the foothills of the Vaca Mountains soon gather to form a west-facing horseshoe – and embraced at its center is Coombsville.
The ancient geological events by which we can account for this unique display are still enwrapped in speculation, however there is evidence of an abrupt and volatile past: volcanic eruption and collapse, uplifts and landslides, and the massive deposit of debris.
These events established a niche within the Napa Valley, a quiet harbor for unique climatic and geologic character – and, resultantly, an equally compelling terroir.
Situated deep in the heart of the rolling hills of Napa Valley’s Carneros District, Hudson Ranch and Vineyards is our agrarian dream.
Producing world-class wine grapes for exceptional wines and Tuscan olives for verdant oil, raising heritage breed pigs, lamb and chickens, and growing a diverse array of seasonal fruits and vegetables for our CSA Program, our farm encapsulates the true sense of wonder, possibility, and enthusiasm with which we start each day.
Fifth-generation Napa natives, Maggy and John began their endeavor in the 1970s planting The Judge vineyard on the Kongsgaard family land near Napa. The inaugural Kongsgaard wines came in 1996... underground winery—a cave dug into the volcanic rock, high on the eastern rim of the Napa Valley where we have planted a spectacular mountain vineyard.
These intensely farmed, shy-bearing vineyards and their traditional low-intervention winemaking produce powerful, graceful wines—vivid expressions of vineyard and variety. Production is limited to what they, with their son Alex, can make with their own hands.
Obsidian Wine Co.
Less than 1% of the Earth’s surface can produce exceptional wines. These rare sites share the balance of ripening sun with cooling air, resulting either from latitude, proximity to the sea, or elevation.
Planted along a ridge at the highest part of the Mayacamas Mountains, 105 acres of our Obsidian Ridge Vineyard rise from 2,300' to 2,640' in elevation and range from 5 to 20% slopes. The contours of the mountainside influence how we prune, water, balance the canopy, and pick the fruit—shaping literally every aspect of how we farm and vinify.
Radio-Coteau works closely with select cool-climate coastal vineyard sites in Western Sonoma County and Anderson Valley to produce wines with vibrant, balanced fruit and a distinct sense of place. Focus is on organic, detailed viticulture in conjunction with a natural, non-interventionist approach in the cellar to more accurately reflect the unique character of each site and season. The winery is situated in Sebastopol, and the estate vineyard is located in the hills above Occidental, California.

The Scholium Project is a small producer with a lot of passion.
Scholium makes wine that is unique and distinct. At Scholium, they consider themselves students because of their constant pursuit to learn and discover.
"Our projects are not always experiments - sometimes we know what we are doing - but they are always acts of emulation, looking up at the work of others we admire."

“My approach to winemaking is to be as gentle as possible. I work from a position of respect for the quality of the vineyard soils and the hard work of my brother and his crew, to bring out the natural flavor of the wines without adding acid, tannins, heavy oak, or other winemaker tricks...
After a quick cold soak, we ferment the wines predominately with native yeasts. The wines are then aged in 1/3 new, 2/3 neutral French oak for 12 to 26 months.... I aim to produce powerful, terroir driven balanced wines year after year.”
