If I were to mention the likes of Napa Valley producers such as Cardinale, Silver Oak, Dominus, Far Niente, Rudd and even …..Screaming Eagle, pretty familiar with those names, yes? What if I were to also tell you that Gamble Family Vineyards has been around longer than the rest of those producers, owns much more land and is located in the heart of Napa Valley? It’s true! Founded in 1916, the Gamble Family has an impressive legacy as a farming family, growing some of the valley’s most sought after grapes; as a grower of grapes for the likes of Cakebread and others, and has even helped produced TWO 100 point scoring wines for Beringer! The Gamble Family Vineyard property sits right in the middle of all of the action.
The winery itself, established by third-generation farmer Tom Gamble in 2005, Gamble Family Vineyards farms approximately 175 acres of prime estate vineyards from several of Napa Valley’s most respected AVAs – Oakville, Yountville, Mt. Veeder, and Rutherford. Set in an isolated nook off of Highway 29 in the heart of Napa Valley’s Oakville District, our winery has a quiet presence. Tom Gamble’s mission is to carry on the heritage of quality farming that his ancestors sowed when they came to Napa as farmers and ranchers. As a winery they are a small producing, making only a few thousand TOTAL cases. By comparison, their 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet – only 1,790 cases made. Caymus……145,000 cases produced! Big difference. (it’s like comparing hand crafted burgers from Red Coat Tavern, to mass produced McDonalds)
