Since its founding in 1973 by Jack and Dolores, Cakebread Cellars in the Napa Valley has been famous for its warm, gracious hospitality and unmatched wines. Cakebread’s tasting room is in Rutherford, about 20 minutes north of American Canyon on Highway 29.
Cakebread Cellars has vineyard properties located throughout Napa Valley and a location in the Anderson Valley. The winery ranches surrounding the production facility in Rutherford are where it all began. The first 22-acre parcel was purchased in 1972. Over the years, the family has continued to acquire additional vineyard parcels throughout Napa Valley and the North Coast. Today, the winery owns 15 sites totaling 1617 acres, 584 of which are currently planted. This judicious acquisition and development of vineyard land enables Cakebread to more completely control the quality of the fruit we grow and the wines they make.
