Premiere Napa Valley Wines

About Us

For years, Bill Foley and his wife, Carol Johnson Foley, had dreamt of opening a winery bearing their name in Napa Valley. They both enjoyed the grandeur of Napa’s scenery and the rhythm of its lifestyle, and, more importantly, the couple loved the opulence and complexity of Napa’s wines. With the launch of Foley Johnson in 2012, the Foleys have created a world-class winery with premier vineyards and a historic tasting room right in the heart of America’s preeminent wine-growing region.

Located along Highway 29 in the prestigious Rutherford AVA, Foley Johnson exemplifies the understated elegance and casual warmth of the Valley. The winery focuses on luxury Bordeaux wines produced from our 50 acre Foley Johnson Estate in the heart of Rutherford, as well as our esteemed Peral Vineyard, a 10-acre parcel of Cabernet Sauvignon adjacent to our main estate.

Tasting Experience

Our restored barn and tasting area has been described as understated elegance. Warm and friendly attention is given to each visitor in a unhurried atmosphere. Join us for a tasting, or if you prefer, bottle service or a wine by the glass. Lots of fun to be had with a croquette lawn, bean bag toss games, and Scrabble.
