About Goosecross Cellars

A family owned and operated winery in Yountville. While we are very proud of the different wines we make, our primary focus will be on you and your experience, since for us, friendship is why we're in the wine business.

Goosecross invites you to join our family and experience all the road less traveled has to offer. We produce only 8,000 cases each year, and our winemaker Bill Nancarrow focuses all of his time and energy on growing grapes and guiding their transformation into great wine. Bill crafts our wines to show true varietal character by staying focused on the basics, sustainable farming with attention, care, and diligence in the cellar. At Goosecross we took a different path, a path that supports our perspective that producing great wine is not enough and our deep commitment to hospitality, service and connecting with people is tantamount to our mutual success with customers.

A visit to Goosecross provides an authentic, working family winery experience. We're known as much for our laid-back atmosphere and hospitality as we are for sustainable farming and dedication to making seriously great wines. We offer a rustic, off the beaten path retreat for wine tasting. You can taste in our new and inviting tasting room, bond with the friendly staff, wander the vineyard, relax on the scenic deck, and witness production. Since 100% of our wines are sold consumer-direct, the winery is the only place to find them.

The wine tasting staff spent just the right amount of time with my party of 4 - they intuited how much information re: each wine we wanted. Also did not make us feel rushed - we were able to enjoy the patio for as long as we'd hoped!

The open gateway between the pouring bar and the back patio made any view during tasting exceptional. We spent half of our tasting standing at the bar chatting with the sommelier, and half out at a table on the patio. The entire time we were greeted with beautiful views and with good service from the Goosecross team.

We were greeted warmly when we first arrived and were invited to enjoy our tasting either inside or out. Our host Daniel found us wherever we were and took the time to answer all of our questions and made us feel as if we were the only customers he had.

We were warmly welcomed and we had a chance to learn the "ways " of tasting, as this was our first winery. Beautiful tasting room! Very pleasant young man, a Vikings fan, and we are from Minnesota. What fun! Casual, beautiful setting. Great spot!

Realizing wine tasting is largely personal preference, this experience was not as pleasant as we had hoped. Also, crackers or water in between each serving would be helpful. Facilities were nice.

I'm a club member at Goosecross and they always make me feel like family. Everyone who works there is super fun and friendly. I can't wait until the weather warms up so that I can hang out on their awesome back patio! Great wines too!

I brought my mom and it was perfect. We were ahead of schedule and they happily accommodated our early arrival. They allowed us to bring in my dog, he ran around out back while we enjoyed the delicious wine. The view is fantastic and the wine is great. Great team of employees to answer your every question and go through their favorite points of each of the wines they poured. Would return.
