Seavey Vineyard

Napa Valley

Our Story

"Seavey is one of the great, unheralded, under-the-radar terroirs in all of Napa Valley." -Robert Parker, Jr.

Seavey Vineyard's steep, rocky hillsides produce small, thick-skinned berries with outstanding tannins with which winemaker Jim Duane creates masterful, soulful wines that exude a sense of place and age gracefully for several decades. We have never purchased a grape and our wines do not leave the premises until they are in the bottle.

Our primary goal is to produce legendary 20-30 year-old Cabernets that grow increasingly layered and complex over time. We are also known for producing a coveted Merlot that is known for its salinity and minerality. Our wine library maintains wine from each vintage produced since 1990.

“There are no shortcuts in the vineyard. Our wine’s best friend is time, with patience being a gift you give to yourself.” - William A. Seavey

Now with a fourteen years of legendary Seavey wines to his credit, Jim has proven himself an elite winemaker whose artistry and skill continue to reach new heights with every vintage. About Seavey, Jim says: “I delight in the rugged terraces and steep vineyards here, which provide constant opportunities to refine our cultivation methods, and in our small team’s relentless pursuit of crafting unmistakable, world-class wines.” Jim previously worked at Robert Mondavi Winery and Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and has a Master’s Degree in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis.
