Ashes & Diamonds Winery

Located at the gateway of Napa Valley along its main artery, Highway 29, ASHES & DIAMONDS is a love letter to the region. Looking back in order to move forward, the winery evokes the days when Napa first took the world stage in the 1960s, revealing itself as a geological wonderland capable of first-class wines. In homage to this golden era and its pioneers, winemakers Steve Matthiasson and Diana Snowden Seysses adhere to a light-handed ethos, with transparency of terroir as its guiding light—a Burgundian approach to Bordeaux varietals.

The mid-century feel extends to the architecture; Barbara Bestor, the restorer of California modernist classics by the likes of Caspar Johann Ehmcke and Rudolph Schindler, has captured the highly functional, effortless elegance of the era perfectly. The property offers hospitality centering around the wines, as well as an inspired culinary program from chef Emma Sears. Experiences to be had range from quick bar or lingering light-lunch tastings, to private member tastings featuring tours and barrel sampling. ASHES & DIAMONDS also hosts music, art, movies and more.
