Welcome to the website of Gemstone Vineyard, a small, family-owned grape grower and producer of estate wines. Though we do make a minute quantity of Chardonnay, our focus is on crafting richly textured red wines from Bordeaux varietals grown on our 16 acre hillside property in the Yountville appellation of Napa Valley. Our wines are quite limited. Most are sold to members of our allocation list, which you can request to join here, while the rest can be found on the wine lists of great restaurants through the country. "I hope people discover these great wines made by winemaking consultant Philippe Melka... These are stunning wines and all promise long life. The flagship wine is their Gemstone Proprietary Red, which is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, and the other wine, Facets, usually a rather Bordeaux-styled blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but with significant proportions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot." – Description from JasminaDragoljevic

  • Yes but that's partly because it's what we've been given. With ... ... brands - Phelps Insignia, Gemstone Facets, etc. It's not really such a bad idea - ultimately the name on the bottle is a brand anyway, so for the 99 percent of the people who never take a trip to a winery, what's the difference between Chateau Ausone and Caymus Conundru Read More

  • My first time with Tignanello, and while this not something I'd buy in bulk it was good to have the experience. Definitely good wine, and curious to try an older vintage.TN: Plum, fig, coffee, vanilla, and black cherries on the nose.Shows good acidity on entry, followed by fresh red and black fruit flavors, coating the mouth well with extract.

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark with no light coming through. Big nose--oak, cassis. Very oaky in the mouth, some tobacco flavor, not a lot fo fruit, but wow, this wine is sour. I sure hope it gets better. Maybe i have an aftertaste from the cinnamon roll I had, earlier. It's going to get a pretty low rating, right now. If it improves later, I'll update this re... Read More

  • Am doing a short day trip to Napa later this month and am wondering if you all have any recommendations for tasting rooms in this area. Have another tasting at Kapcsandy lined up for the day, which should be amazing, but would also like to take advantage of my time up there and visit another nearby winery. Don't have much time, so the closer the... Read More
