After many trips to the Napa Valley, it became a dream of mine to make my own wine. I knew I wanted to make it hand-crafted in small batches that could hold its own with the best wines in the valley and the world, for that matter. My goal was simple, to find the best fruit that I could personally put my hands on, find the best winemaker in the business, and be involved in every step of the process.
Becklyn Cellars is pleased to present a line up of wines grown in some of the best vineyards in the Napa Valley, including Missouri Hopper, Moulds Family and McGah.
Our first vintage was 2012, so harvest 2022 marks our 10th vintage making Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc with Winemaker Mike Smith.
Winemaker mike Smith started his winemaking career under the direction of Thomas Brown in 2001. Traveling from Portland Oregon, Mike worked each crush “free of charge” to learn his craft. Following his 3rd harvest, Mike accepted a full-time assistant position with Thomas and moved his family to St. Helena.
