Pahlmeyer

Pahlmeyer Wine released their first vintage in 1986 – they currently taste their wines at the upscale Maisonry tasting room in Yountville. They started producing wine at the Napa Wine Co in 1994 soon after Napa Wine Co underwent a huge renovation to accommodate production from wineries who do not actually have their own physical winery. This winery was started by Jayson Pahlmeyer a former attorney who once his wines started becoming popular, stopped his legal work and dedicated his full time to his wine. As with several other vintners we have meet with who worked in other industries before becoming vintners, Jayson started becoming hooked by the wine industry and slowly phased out his law practice. He made several trips to France to find some of the highest quality Bordeaux varietal clones and then took them back to California where he planted his own vineyard.
