Daniel Dawson opened Back Room Wines in the summer of 2002. In 2008, Daniel moved Back Room Wines from its original location to its current one, on the corner of First & Main Streets in the heart of Downtown Napa. In seven years of successful business, the mission of Back Room Wines has never wavered: Recommend and sell the best small production wines of the world with great customer service to back it up. Rare, hard-to-get, cult, limited-production: however you choose to say it-that’s our specialty. As important as the rarity, we do all we can to find the wine that you will like the best. This question often asked of us, “what do you recommend?” Of course, we recommend everything in the shop, so our reply is “depends what you like.” Grape preference, style, are you having with food, what wines have you had that you liked, and of course your budget. These are all important to figure out what’s the best wine we can suggest to you. Our inventory goes way beyond California let alone Napa Valley Read more »

  • I never thought much off blind tasting. I always thought I knew what I like and I can read, so what should blind tasting be good for. Well, for the last year I have been taking a sommelier course down here in Mexico City with a lot of blind tasting involved and it really opened my eyes.It really helped me to better understand the characterics of...
