August Briggs Winery is a family-owned winery in Napa Valley dedicated to producing very limited quantities of great wines from carefully selected vineyards across California’s North Coast counties. Owner Joe Briggs brings a quarter-century of winemaking knowledge in working with quality grape growers to produce our signature style of balanced wines with intense fruit character. Joe and his wife Sally welcome you to their winery home in Calistoga. August Briggs currently produces 16 different wines. Joe explains, "I let the grape supply dictate the wines I make now and in the future as well, so I'll be able to deliver different and interesting wines to my customers. One of my main focuses is to have fun with the wine. We probably won't ever be known for one particular wine, but rather making great wine in general." Come visit us at 333 Silverado Trail, on the south end of town, for a friendly greeting and some of the best single-vineyard and appellation-designated wine! Read more »

Upfront fruit with a taste profile that fits the "nose", with a long finish. Firm, yet smooth tannins produce a mouth-coating texture that set this wine apart form... Read More

  • August Briggs Cab Monte Rosso 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Dark plum purple in appearance, dark chocolate and spice, layers of dark fruits, blackberries and black currants, still tight and highly tannic but has potential and could be aged for 12 years of so. Read More
