About Us

In 1992, we harvested our first two tons of Pinot Noir from four rows atop a knoll in the southwest corner of Carneros. Producing but five barrels, this marked the beginning of Ancien Wines. In the years since, we have continued our pursuit of those rare and special plots where Pinot Noir can rise from great to sublime. We have added to our pursuit of Pinot Noir, the production of its close relative, Pinot Gris, as well as its Burgundian sibling, Chardonnay. For both of these white wines, we closely follow the French artisanal tradition of in-barrel fermentation and aging.

Winery Features

Tasting Experience

Visit us at our winery, located in a little-known pocket of the Napa Valley. Visits to the winery are private and by appointment only. Or visit our convenient tasting room in Downtown Napa, open seven days a week.



Taste wine sitting under ancient live oaks, surrounded by vineyards, overlooking the rolling hills of Coombsville.

Unique Features

The Ancien winery sits in the middle of the historic Haynes Vineyard, home to some rather old Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines--planted in 1966 and still producing beautiful wines today.

Wine Education

Taste several different Pinot Noirs in order to gain a better understanding of vineyard terroir, or of how where grapes are grown profoundly influences their finished character, about how a fine wine exhibits a sense of place.
