|Welcome to Watkins Family Winery!
We are a small family-owned winery in Sonoma County specializing in mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. The Watkins Family has been handcrafting boutique wines in Sonoma County since 1979, beginning as farmers and garagistes. For many years we have enjoyed growing grapes in the beautiful countryside of Sonoma County, making only two barrels of wine each vintage. This tiny production of wine was just enough to share with friends and family.
In 2003, we decided to make a little more wine, increasing production to eight barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Barn Block Vineyard on the rugged rocky slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains. This allowed us to increase our allocation mailing list to those who had been asking for more of our wines with "strikingly pure flavors and a pronounced sense of place." We do not have a tasting room that sells to the general public,
so at this time the best way to buy our
limited production wines is to fax or mail an order or contact us by phone
