Bruce Ahnfeldt moved to the Napa Valley in the mid 1980’s. While Ahnfeldt Wines did not begin until 2002, the Ahnfeldts developed and planted their first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in 1985. Since developing and planting that first vineyard, they have planted five more vineyards of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes in the Napa Valley. Grapes from the Ahnfeldt vineyards have been sold to BV (Bealieu), Markham, Sterling, Kendal Jackson and Hagafen wineries. These mature vineyards produce such fine quality grapes, that they are now used in their wines. Bruce’s experience in agriculture goes back to his teenage years. For a number of years, he and his brother leased and farmed ten acres of apricot orchards in Los Altos Hills, California, now known as the world famous Silicon Valley.

  • Last night we had a 2012 Ahnfeldt Merlot which is a Cab lovers Merlot. Great nose, black fruit, hint of chocolate, exellent complexity with tannins playing nice and a long finish. (Not to mention a beautiful bottle) In 2007 we stayed at the winemaker's girlfriend/wife's bed in breakfast near downtown Napa. Nice place.  Read More

  • Ahnfeldt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2004


    This wine is the bomb.. The only reason I don't give it 5 glasses is because its peaking right now.. This is a fully mature big bodied incredibly smooth well balanced mouth watering treasure of a wine. It will hold on for a couple more years but you usually have to pay $50 to $100 for a california cab of this quality. Read More
