Tamber Bey Vineyards

A visit to the Tamber Bey Winery is like nothing else in Napa Valley. The winery is located at the Sundance Ranch in Calistoga, a world-class equestrian facility that is dedicated to training top performance horses. The tasting room is located in the original barn clubhouse. The 16-stall barn surrounds the courtyard, where guests can taste wine and mingle with the horses. The winery was built by remodeling a 15,000-square-foot covered riding arena into a state-of-the-art winemaking facility with a crush pad that houses 36 fermentation tanks sized for individual vineyard-designated wines.

Tamber Bey Vineyards was founded in 1999 by Barry Waitte, who longed to escape Silicon Valley for the Napa Valley of his childhood. He wanted to create a place where he could grow the finest grapes in the valley and raise and enjoy his Arabian horses for which the wine company is named. Tamber Bey Vineyards is renowned for its 100% estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Chardonnay. The wines are handcrafted by celebrated winemaker Frederic Delivert, whose skills result in award-winning, single-varietal wines and masterful Bordeaux-style blends.

The tasting room is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. Tours and tastings are by appointment only.
