Seavey is known for handcrafting wines of exceptional depth, elegance and restraint, and with an uncommon ability to age. Our grapes are grown entirely on our family-run estate vineyard and the wine does not leave the property until it is in bottle. We look forward to offering you a taste of wine made in the finest classical tradition, and a glimpse of a vineyard and winery operation that is reminiscent of the “Old Napa Valley.”
“This season, we’re growing the grapes for our 28th vintage on vineyard blocks first planted by my parents over 40 years ago. We’re committed to continuing our parents’ legacy of making wine in a simple, authentic manner that respects the land and puts a premium on creating long-lived wines. In today’s Napa, that’s a rare mission.”
—Dorie Seavey, Managing Director
We welcome you to visit our historic estate. Nestled in the steep eastern hillsides of Howell Mountain near St. Helena, Seavey seems worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Highway 29 and Silverado Trail. Our privately-hosted tastings take place in a stone barn built in the 1880s and include a short guided tour of the grounds and gardens alongside gently flowing Conn Creek. Visitors may be delighted to spot a red tailed hawk or a variety of spring wildflowers while having the rare opportunity to purchase select wines, many available only at the winery, from a library dating back to the first Seavey vintage of 1990.
“Our parents were passionate about preserving open space and farming the land in a way that protects this precious ecosystem. Today, 80 percent of our land is in a conservation easement and we’re using solar energy, composting, vermiculture, an insectary, and our own livestock to create sustainability.”
—Art Seavey, Managing Director
