About the
Stone Cellar

Built in 1879, our historic stone cellar accommodates groups of 15 to 200 guests. We specialize in pairing our award-winning wines with the culinary delights of Napa’s most celebrated chefs and caterers for private winery dinners, corporate events, rehearsal dinners and more. We arrange every detail of your event, from customized printed menus to floral arrangements and live entertainment, with professionalism and panache. 

Rehearsal Dinners

Why Wait for the Wedding to Celebrate?

The rehearsal dinner is a wonderful way for friends and family to socialize — and share embarrassing stories about the bride and groom — before the big day. Your guests are greeted with a refreshing glass of our award-winning sauvignon blanc paired with hors d’oeuvres created by our talented local chef. Dinner is in our historic stone cellar — the perfect way to kick off your wedding celebration.
