Welcome to Destino Wines...
Meaning fate, journey and destination, the name Destino reflects a simple, guiding philosophy--that the winemaking journey is the destination. In this spirit, our approach to artisan winemaking expresses itself in a passion for the many small details. From the way the sunlight dapples the ripening grapes in the vineyards to the nuanced diversity of oak barrels from different forests in France, our wines embody a rich sense of exploration.
Destino Wines is a boutique ultra-premium winery owned by Kevin & Anne Murphy, whose passion for producing wines of the highest quality ensures that Destino's wines delight and impress its loyal customers. Destino Wines' approach to winemaking is about flavor intensity, passion for the fruit, and an uncompromising quest for quality. We source our grapes from only the finest vineyards in Napa Valley and Russian River, we crush, ferment and barrel-age our wines at our modern facility in Carneros, and when it is time to bottle our wines, we double-verify that the wine is worthy of the Destino label.
We are a small operation, and could not achieve the success for which we strive were it not for the guidance and energy of our many friends in the industry. Making great wine requires a great passion, great grapes, and great relationships.
