When Shadowbox Cellars was founded in 2009, two of its partners, Monty and Sara Preiser, were well recognized wine writers. Because of their knowledge of winemakers and vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, the decision was made by all the partners to engage individual winemakers who had made strong impressions revolving around certain varietals. Thus, at its inception the company employed four winemakers to craft four varietals, each in their own particular style. It was a noble experiment. As the Shadowbox owners gained education and experience in their new field of endeavor, the decision was made to focus on a singular style of wine - their own.

Each year has seen progress in not only the quality of the wines, but the production numbers, which have expanded from 200 cases in 2009 to now just over 700 cases.

Nonetheless, the focus and ultimate profile of each wine has remained the same -- acid driven, food friendly wines, sourced from small vineyards that produce superior fruit. The Preisers and the Holzes all firmly agree that without the perfect vineyard, the beginning point of each grape, the final product will fall short of expectation.
