Coombsville Wine Tours
Nestled in the southeast corner of the Napa Valley, just a few miles east of town, Coombsville is one of the newest and most exciting sub AVAs and one which remains undiscovered by many. Join the throngs who are drawn to this heaven on earth for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Syrah and Pinot.
Some fantastic wineries in this appellation are:
Black Cat, Buoncristiani, Caldwell, Tournesol
Black Cat 707.321.0866
The wines of Napa Valley’s Black Cat Vineyard are crafted, by hand, with a passion for perfection. They are wines of finesse, elegantly harmonious and complex. With uncompromising attention to detail and a very personal relationship with the vineyards, I guide each vintage until its distinctive personality blossoms.
Buoncristiani (707) 259-1681
We are four young brothers – Matt, Jay, Aaron & Nate – who were born and raised in the Napa Valley from a long lineage of Italian winemakers and wine lovers. We, the Buoncristiani brothers, take pride in performing all aspects of enology, viticulture, wine production, and art design in order to share with you a true expression of our winemaking passion. Our motto is quality not quantity and we craft our wines without compromise. Handcrafting these limited production wines ourselves allows for the utmost attention to detail of every drop of every gallon in each barrel.

90 feet under the ground we built a working cave. We started digging in September 2002, and we moved in for harvest in 2005. It took a year and a half to dig, and the same amount of time to get it permitted with the county. Surrounded by volcanic ash, the earth keeps us at about 59 degrees even on the hottest days. We have enough storage for 1,200 barrels (25,000 cases of wine) though we only make a few thousand cases every year.
We strive to create vineyards that produce the finest estate grown Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux style blends while being responsible stewards of the land. Tournesol’s wine growing practices follow the principles of sustainability and organic farming which view the vineyard as an ecological whole.
