Great taste runs in the family.

Rombauer Vineyards’ dedication to dining is more than glass deep. Koerner Rombauer’s great Aunt Irma authored internationally renowned cookbook “The Joy of Cooking” in the 1930s. You’ll see this influence in every bottle of Rombauer wine as each cork has “The Joy of Wine” inscribed on it.


Having made many friends in Napa Valley’s growing wine community, the Rombauers become partners in Conn Creek Winery with Bill Beaver and Bill Collins.


The Rombauers sell their stake in Conn Creek, deciding to invest in their own winery. The family harvests their first grapes — Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags Leap District — marking the launch of Rombauer Vineyards.


The first Rombauer Vineyards wines are released — 1980 Cabernet Sauvignon and 1982 Chardonnay. Suggested retail price for each wine is $12.50 per bottle.


The Rombauer family purchases Buchli Station Vineyard in Carneros that becomes the cornerstone of Rombauer’s Chardonnay and Merlot programs.


The Rombauer family continues its investment in estate vineyards with the purchase of a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in Atlas Peak, which overlooks a veritable “who’s who” of Napa Valley vineyards.


Rombauer’s Carneros Chardonnay is ranked among the Top 10 Chardonnays in Wine + Spirits Magazine’s annual Restaurant Wine Poll for the first time. It has ranked on the list every year since.


Introduced with the 2014 vintage, our Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is the first new varietal added to the portfolio in more than 20 years and only the second white wine in Rombauer history.


Reagan Rombauer Blackwood joins Rombauer Vineyards as Assistant Regional Sales Representative, becoming the first member of the family’s third generation to be employed at the winery.


Koerner Rombauer, the founder of Rombauer Vineyards and a beloved figure in the Napa Valley over the last four decades, passed away on May 10 at the age of 83.


Ruth's Chris Steak House hosts an incredible 5 course dinner expertly paired with wines from Rombauer Vineyards.

Because fine food and fine wine go together like family

From grapes to bottling, the dedicated team at Rombauer Vineyards brings a family mentality to their work and a personal approach to each step. The grapes are hand harvested and sorted. They even take a picture of each berry to make sure it’s perfect.
