Looking for a somewhere different in Napa Valley? Charbay's Still House tasting room in the Spring Mountain District is where you'll find our collection of small-lot wines, aperitifs and ports...in a country setting featuring our 'petite' Alambic pot still.

Charbay is one of the only wineries in the U.S. that distills its own brandy. Our ports and aperitifs draw from our 30-year library of barrel-aged brandies, made personally by our family's 13th Generation Master Distiller, Marko Karakasevic.
