Franciscan has its roots deeply embedded in the soil of Napa Valley. Founded over three decades ago, wine industry revolutionaries Raymond Duncan and Justin Meyer shaped the winery’s beginnings.

Think of a big chardonnay done in the style of a Belgian beer. Unique, wonderful, and for the price, one of the better white wine experiences you can find.
