Narrow Gate Vineyards produces wines through faith, passion, attention to detail and a tremendous amount of joy. Our wines are genuinely hand made with very little intervention by technology. Our estate vineyards are guided by our Creator with practical and sustainable farming methods that employ common sense that nurtures our soils and vines. We invite you to our barrel room to taste our wines that accentuate the bold and smooth flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon & Syrah blends, Rhone blends of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Viognier & Roussanne, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and a crisp, bright Chardonnay. We make additional small lot blends from our estate vineyards exclusively for our "Club Splash" members. We look forward to meeting all who walk through our doors, our Narrow Gate - Matthew 7:13-14.

Experience the wonderment of the land and enjoy a "splash" among the barrels and majestic pines.
