About Us

In 1965, Jack and Jamie Davies established Schramsberg as a sparkling wine estate on the property originally founded in 1862 by German immigrant Jacob Schram, which at that time was the first hillside winery in Napa Valley. At a time when there were only 21 wineries in Napa Valley and fewer than 300 acres of California vineyard planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, they set out to make world-class sparkling wine in the true Méthode Traditionnelle style. Theirs was the first California winery to provide a Blanc de Blancs in 1965 followed by a Blanc de Noirs in 1967. Now their son Hugh Davies, who was born the same year the Davies arrived at Schramsberg, leads the winery’s management and winemaking team. Schramsberg Vineyards focuses on producing the finest and most complex handcrafted sparkling wines in California. Preserving century-old traditions, many of our viticultural and winemaking practices are still carried out by hand. Our tête de cuvée sparkling wines receive an impressive seven to eight years of bottle aging prior to release, the balance receiving two or more years. All of our wines are enjoyable upon release but can also be cellared for 20 years or more.

Unique Features

Schramsberg’s history dates back to the 19th century, when German immigrant Jacob Schram first made his home and started his winery on Diamond Mountain. The winery has 150 year old caves due by Chinese laborers in 1870, which today contain over 3 million sparkling wine bottles aging en tirage. The winery was visited by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1880 on his honeymoon, and later included a chapter about Schramsberg in his book "The Silverado Squatters."

Over one hundred years later Jack and Jamie Davies would restore the Schramsberg estate in 1965. They set out to produce sparkling wine – specifically, “America’s most prestigious, select and admired sparkling wine. Schramsberg has also played a role in world history. The Blanc de Blancs was used for President Nixon’s 1972 “Toast to Peace” with China’s Premier Zhou Enlai. Schramsberg’s sparkling wines have been served at official State functions by every U.S. Presidential administration since.
