Grand winery openings see Napa rise

20th February, 2014 by Catherine Seda Bugue

The rise of premium wine sales in the US has prompted a number of new winery and hospitality centres to spring up at some of the best GPS coordinates in Napa Valley.

Petite Sirah grapesB Cellars, a premium winery and tasting salon on the Silverado Trail in Calistoga is relocating to an historic property in the Oakville AVA.

Its new neighbors will include Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon heavy hitters Silver Oak, Plumpjack, and Rudd.

The new address, 701 Oakville Cross Road, expands over 11.5 acres. The property was purchased by Bill Cameron, Chairman and CEO of Oklahoma-based American Fidelity Group, a longtime strategic investor in B Cellars, in partnership with the winery’s co-founders, Duffy Keys and Jim Borsack.

The property was previously owned by the Miller family who sought a winery permit in 2007 but remained devoted to raising champion horses, never building a winery. Prior to the Millers, the property had several other agricultural uses – the first recorded deed dates back to 1875.

B Cellars creates premium blends from Napa Valley’s best vineyard addresses including To Kalon, Dr. Crane, Georges III, Star and Stagecoach. The owners work closely with Napa Valley’s top grower, Andy Beckstoffer.

The project, by architectural firm Hart, Howerton, includes a 5,000-square-foot hospitality house overlooking the vineyards and an interactive demonstration kitchen to be co-led by Chef Christina Machamer, winner of Fox TV’s Hell’s Kitchen (Season 4), and culinary director Brian Green. There will be an herb garden, bocce court, and outdoor dining terraces, and the hillside property now has 15,000 feet of caves for barrel storage.
Co-owner, Jim Borsack, said of the new winery, “It will be the most beautiful girl at the ball, without showing off.”

The roofs and walls of the buildings are made of corrugated corten metal and the garden walls of rammed earth from the excavated caves.
B Cellars’ new home is set to open to the public later this Spring.
