Saddleback Cellars

1679 visitors

Rustic and modest, Saddleback Cellars takes its name from Saddleback Mountain located in Orange County, California where Nils was born and raised. Established in 1976, the first vintage was released in 1982 and we became a bonded winery one year later. The winery is owned and operated by Nils Venge and his family. There are 17 acres of prime Oakville fruit on property. Saddleback Cellars is proud of its diminutive stature and being one of the 'boutique' wineries in the Napa Valley.

A blend of traditional Burgundian clones hand-picked at optimum ripeness producing a wine with rich complexity and dark color. This wine exhibits flavors of black cherry, dried currents and toasted oak. Lively acidity and soft yet firm tannins create amazing balance and a long finish.
