Raymond Vineyard and Cellar

Raymond Vineyards, founded in 1970 is one of Napa Valley's great estates. Through the years, Raymond Vineyards has built an enduring legacy for elegant wines with beautiful balance, finesse, power, and complexity.  Five generations of the Raymond family imbued the winery with a sense of its deep roots in the Napa Valley and a commitment to honor those roots through every wine produced.

Today, Raymond is an integral part of Boisset Family Estates.  Raymond Vineyards is renowned for its 100% Cabernet Sauvignons made with grapes from the most prestigious Napa Valley appellations.  Raymond has become one of the most dynamic destinations in The Napa Valley.  The winemaking team, lead by Stephanie Putnam and the unparalleled experiences found at the winery are responsible for Raymond being named the 2012 American Winery of the Year by Wine Enthusiast.   

These experiences include:

• The Crystal Cellar- A tasting room encased by stainless steel walls, a mirrored bar, with 100% Cabernet Sauvignons poured from Baccarat decanters.

• The Red Room- A by appointment tasting lounge boasting velvet ensconced walls appointed with red couches, a black laquer bar, pool table, lit by Baccarat chandeliers and home to our Red Room Wine.

• Theater of Nature-Our 2-acre Theater of Nature is the largest exhibition on Biodynamic farming and winemaking in the Napa Valley.

• Winemaker for a Day-An opportunity for guests to learn to mimic the winemaker's art of blending wine.  Guests will have the opportunity to work with our Reserve-level wines to make their own unique blend.  While dressed in a non-traditional lab coat, guests will create their special blend, fill, cork, and foil their bottle and then create their own label and place the label on their bottle and proudly walk out the door with a bottle of their own Reserve-level wine to take home and share with friends.

Come for the day or stay the night at one of the lovely Napa Valley hotels.

The Corridor of Senses
Experience the color, smell and texture of wine in Raymond Vineyards' Corridor of Senses. Guests begin with the Touch Station where they can get a feel for how wine can display various textures on the palate. See the different color shades of wine displayed on the wall, and smell the distinct, complex aromas found in wine, all while enjoying a glass of your favorite Raymond wine.

The Crystal Cellar
Designed to focus on the experience of wine and decanting, the Crystal Cellar boasts stainless steel walls, a mirrored bar and a collection of historical crystal decanters from Baccarat, the world's premier hand-crafted luxury crystal maker. Beneath a remarkable Baccarat chandelier, experience the important effect that aerating wine in a Baccarat decanter has on Raymond's powerful Napa Valley Cabernets.

The Library Room
An exclusive space hidden behind our Classic Tasting Room, the Raymond Library Room offers guests and members a unique opportunity to taste in a private setting surrounded by Raymond's Cabernet Sauvignons dating back to 1974. Savor this rare experience as you sample our best wines surrounded by great wines of the Napa Valley.

The Rutherford Room
The Rutherford Room is the heart of Raymond's educational curriculum. Surrounded by soil samples from Napa's 16 sub-AVAs, guests can book a class that offers a concise overview of the Napa Valley. We also offer Arts and Crafts, a Guess the Blend challenge, a class on the winemaker's art of blending and Wine and Food, a component tasting illustrating the essentials of food and wine pairing.
