Tasting Of Luxury California Brandies In Downtown Napa
California Brandy House is the first stand-alone tasting room dedicated solely to luxury California brandies. Located in downtown Napa at First Street Napa, it initially showcases two leading brandy portfolios, Germain-Robin and Argonaut.
“Our California brandies, like Germain-Robin and Argonaut, are crafted from world-class white and red grape varieties exclusively grown on California soil,” says Britt West, Vice President and General Manager of Gallo Spirits, a division of E. & J. Gallo Winery.
“These fine brandies are as rich, vibrant and complex as the land itself. There is no better place than Napa Valley, the heart of wine country, to re-establish California brandy among the world’s best distilled spirits.”
The tasting room features expert guided tasting flights, including limited offerings and single-barrel samples not available anywhere else in the area. Tastings will initially take place in the California Brandy House outdoor parklet.
People can also purchase from the full Germain-Robin and Argonaut portfolio, including exclusive releases as well as the ability to customize every bottle with laser engraving.
To ensure proper social distancing, reservations must be made in advance.
Though it is seen today as an up-and-coming trend in brown spirits, brandy played a pivotal role in California drinks history. From the time of missionary Franciscan monks using wine country grapes to craft California’s first brandies to the exceptional brandies of today, California Brandy House allows people to learn more about the spirit’s long West Coast history.
California Brady House is located at 1300 First Street, Suite 309, in downtown Napa.
