Terroir Tasting

B Cellars enjoys rich, long-term relationships with a number of growers tending a number of vineyard sites located around the Napa Valley and into Sonoma. This diversity of vineyard terroir allows us to create a wide range of wines, each exhibiting a unique profile of flavors, textures, and aromas. Terroir is a term that we have adopted from the French. There is no exact translation, but it refers to the idea that each vineyard possesses an utterly unique combination of soils and meso-climate which are not reproduceable by any other vineyard. This terroir, in turn, is expressed in the grapes themselves and ultimately in the wines we create.

As envisioned by B Cellars co-founder Duffy Keys, this experience is designed to showcase the nuance of terroir by setting wines made from the same grape varietal but different wine growing regions and vineyards in a side by side tasting and to gain a new understanding of the rich variety of flavors which we seek to celebrate in our winemaking at B Cellars. Explore 6 wines and a barrel tasting paired with cheese and charcuterie. 

$125 per person. Please allow 90 minutes for this experience.

Beckstoffer Heritage

Beckstoffer Vineyards and B Cellars Winery enjoy a longstanding partnership rooted in a shared philosophy of excellence. Over the last 40+ years, proprietor Andy Beckstoffer succeeded in acquiring the 6 historically significant vineyards dating back to the 1800’s. These namesake vineyards known as: Bourn, Dr. Crane, Georges III, Las Piedras, Missouri Hopper and To Kalon share an enviable world-wide reputation among a tight-knit community of cult wine enthusiasts and collectors.

B Cellars produces 8 wines from the 6 Beckstoffer Heritage vineyards and is the only winery in the Napa Valley that collaborates in the annual creation of a “Beckstoffer Heritage Blend” – a medley of multiple Heritage Vineyards.  Other than our B Cellars Beckstoffer Heritage tasting, no single wine producer can provide a similar side-by-side tasting of all 6 vineyards – clearly a unique proposition for those who savor “one-of-a-kind” opportunities.

Limited availability of our Beckstoffer Heritage collection wines may make it difficult to offer this tasting experience at certain times. Please inquire with our Concierge about our calendar of suggested tasting dates. Appointment only; $185 per person.

The Ascent

The Ascent is envisioned as a group activity among friends, colleagues or a family gathering. The Ascent experience offers a nice balance between socializing, wine tasting and learning about B Cellars approach to “craft” winemaking. Beginning with a brief orientation of the vineyards, gardens, and wine production facilities, guests are presented a flight of 5 wines which are accompanied by an assortment of cheeses and charcuterie.

Your “guide” kicks off the conversation with a look into the B Cellars background and continues as you delve into the appellation origins of the wines we produce. Rest assured, there’s plenty of encouragement for back and forth conversation among attendees and Q&A with your B Cellars guide.

Please inquire with our Event Planning Manager Fiona Tropiano who is readily available to assist with date selection and to help curate your experience according to the needs of the occasion.
