In 1992, Debbie and Randy Lewis established a small family winery with their son Dennis. Total production is approximately 9,000 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. We are literally hands-on in every aspect of vineyard management, winemaking, sales and distribution, and we thrive on this challenge and the relationships we cultivate in the process. It is our continuing goal to create world class wines. – Description from iskicm

  • Lewis Cellars Chardonnay Napa Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very crisp wine. If you hate the oaky/buttery style, this is your thing. I might make a case for this wine being a bit over-acidic. Very subtle on the fruit flavorssome lemon, some stone fruit. A wine to enjoy for itself, but not up to the standards set previous years by this maker. Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

Chardonnay that I like--Lewis Cellars.  Lewis produces Chardonnay bottlings from both Sonoma and Napa grapes, and they do not allow malolactic fermentation.  So, I find them to be much more lean than many California examples.  Greg, you should be able to find it...

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Dunham Cellars Lewis Vineyard Merlot 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet chocolate chip cookie and slightly herbaceous black plum aromas emerge on the nose followed by a profound mocha top note. This is a powerful wine, faceted, yet impressively taut in the mouth with mineral, espresso, and savory notes on entry that are followed by plummy, pie filling fruit on the palate. The savory notes turn spicy in the mo... Read More

  • Dunham Lewis Vineyard Estate Riesling 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very aromatic grapefruit and passionfruit aromas greet the nose followed by floral notes with with hints of dusty minerals. Huge acids on entry gain a love edge of sweetness on the midpalate which reveals layers of sweet pea, lemon pith, and pineapple flavors that persist on the long, fresh finish. A really zesty blend of gentle sweetness and ... Read More
