Though we love a classic wine country winery, the younger crowd in the bay area have been craving a breath of fresh air and they've recently gotten just that- in the form of Ashes & Diamonds Winery. This winery has quite literally taken Napa Valley back to the roots of its fame- the 1960's- and this can be seen in the decor as well as the wine making. Focused on the classic Napa Valley style cabs that made their world debut in the 60's and 70's, Ashes & Diamonds is making exceptional wine with an even better experience.
We haven't seen a winery with such a clear aesthetic since Scribe Winery first made its debut, and we are loving this! The mid-century modern decor, fresh color palette, and bold architecture are bringing youth back to the Napa Valley.
Owner Kashy Khaledi's hope is to create classic, elegant California wines that are representative of site and vintage- something that is certainly easier said than done. He assembled an a-team of winemakers and growers to ensure that they are crafting some of the valley's finest vino.
If you have the chance to stop by the winery, there are a few different options as far as experiences go. These range from your standard wine tasting, to a food and wine pairing, to an all out immersive tour and reserve tasting.
In addition to the standard food and wine experiences, Ashes & Diamonds also has been hosting several workshop series this winter. Centered around woolens, baking, and wellness, each workshop series explores a different topic with experts in the field. Sign up and browse their offerings here.
