Looking for a refreshingly different spot in Napa Valley? Come visit our Still House tasting room on Spring Mountain. We're pouring our wines, ports and aperitifs. Small lots made for our family & friends...in a country setting featuring our 'petite' Alambic pot still from Cognac.

Charbay is one of the only wineries in the U.S. that distills its own brandy to create the ports and aperitifs you'll remember. To make a great port, we believe you should add a great brandy. So we pick from our 30-year library of barrel-aged brandies made personally by our family's 12th & 13th Generation Master Distillers, Miles & Marko Karakasevic.

"...one of the most unique & interesting places to visit in Wine Country."  - Frommer's
