Priest Ranch is a historic Napa Valley property established in 1869 by James Joshua Priest, a Gold Rush prospector. In 2006, we established Priest Ranch wines to pay tribute to the history of the property and Napa Valley. Produced from the historic Priest Ranch, our wines showcase the diversity of the terroir and elevations of our vineyards. Our source produces "fruit so distinctive that it requires only minimal processing, which ensures that its robust mountain flavors shine through as intensely rich, yet beautifully integrated and very approachable in the wines.” - Craig Becker
Priest Ranch embodies the essence of Napa Valley, from the trailblazing mindset of its establishing pioneers to today’s spirit of epicurean and agricultural excellence. Inspired by adventurous pioneers like James Joshua Priest and others who have helped shape the Napa Valley we call home, Priest Ranch is dedicated to producing estate-farmed wines of uncommon quality and character.
We believe that all wines must stem from the land itself. Our winemaker and viticulturist, Craig Becker, draws on rich, diverse vineyard sources that feature a variety of elevations, exposures, soils, and microclimates. With knowledge borne from extensive experience, Craig takes a minimalist approach to winemaking, encouraging the highest expression of personality, intensity, and distinction in each varietal we produce.
Honoring our Napa Valley heritage by cultivating wines with distinctive profiles that expressly link them to their estate source, Priest Ranch is committed to sharing a legacy that encompasses agricultural integrity, a forward-thinking mindset and an unswerving commitment to quality at the very highest level.
