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.

Great wine, amazing people, tranquil location. If you have only experienced the circus at the big wineries you need to give Goosecross a try and see how relaxing and enjoyable wine tasting can be.

Outstanding! Quaint winery with a beautiful view and great wines! We were greeted by Daniel and Eric and they both poured the wines and made an effort to get to know our likes and dislikes not only of wine, but food and music as well. Amazing experience! Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!

My wife and I come up to pick up our wine club shipment. We always enjoy the atmosphere, the people and the wine. We always end up picking up our shipment and buying a bottle. I voted all five stars above. Don't know if they went through.

As always we had a wonderful time. We pick up our shipment each time so we can enjoy the winery and the ambience of the new building. The view is spectacular. The staff is so friendly and fun to chat with.

I love the new tasting area and the work they are doing to keep improving it. The wines are awesome and reasonably priced. I do so hope they don't go the route of other Napa producers and push the prices higher and higher. That will send me away to Sonoma.

Amazing is the best word...Goosecross was recommended by a co-worker of mine who is a member. He spoke very highly of it and he was not incorrect at all! Truly amazing staff, atmosphere...oh and wines! It was so good, we both started and ended the day at Goosecross!

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.
