Founded in 1996 by Dave and Emily Miner, Miner Family Winery crafts reserve-style wines by sourcing fruit from Napa Valley and other specially selected California vineyards. The tasting room and production facility are set into the hills of the beautiful Oakville AVA with sweeping views from north to south. Our property is also 100% solar powered – visitors will spot our large array of solar panels when approaching the property on the Silverado Trail.
Winemaker Stacy Vogel uses a combination of old world winemaking techniques and modern technology to make wines that reflect the unique characteristics of individual vineyards or “terroir” where specific varietals grow best. This fusion of superb vineyard sites and thoughtful winemaking allows Miner to deliver elegant, expressive wines.
