Founded in 1992, Robert Craig Winery is situated along the summit ridge of Howell Mountain at 2,300 feet of elevation. We specialize in small-lot, mountain grown cabernets that feature their shy bearing growing sites in the finished wines. In conjunction with our winery's neighboring vineyard parcel, we own more than 100 acres of Howell Mountain property and farm 35 planted acres there of the finest cabernet variety vineyards anywhere in the world. In addition to the two Howell Mountain vineyards, we own and farm 17 acres of hillside vineyard for our Affinity Cabernet in southern Napa Valley on the lower slopes of Mount George. We also produce a small amount of Mount Veeder, Spring Mountain District, and Diamond Mountain District cabernet from tremendous vineyards in those respective AVA's, each of which is situated above 1,850' in elevation.
Our winery founder, Robert Craig, has been farming mountain cabernet in the Napa Valley since 1980, and he was a key player in the formation of the Mount Veeder and Spring Mountain AVA's. In this tradition, our small winery continues to produce complex, cellar-worthy cabernet sauvignons from mountain vineyard sites in the Napa Valley. Each successive vintage gives us an opportunity to honor these rare growing sites and Bob Craig's pioneering efforts to introduce people around the world to the unique intensity of mountain grown cabernet sauvignons from the Napa Valley.

Remember when winery tasting rooms were intimate, friendly and small enough to enjoy a glass of wine in a pleasant, non-hurried environment? Now you can step back in time at the Robert Craig Tasting Salon in Downtown Napa and enjoy the peaceful, park-like setting adjacent to the Napa River while sipping Robert Craig's sillky-smooth mountain Cabernets. We're just minutes away from the Oxbow Market, the Napa Valley Wine Train Depot and the Napa Town Center. Call or email Jeff to schedule a tasting of Robert Craig mountain Cabernet Sauvignons and our other varietals.View from Tasting Room: Park-like setting on the Napa River
