California's Duckhorn Vineyards Plans Tasting Room

Posted: August 28, 1999

After 20 years of being open by appointment only, Duckhorn Vineyards has begun to build a visitors center at its Napa Valley winery.

The St. Helena winery hired Baum-Thornley Architects of San Francisco to create a two-story facility that will include a tasting room, reception area, catering kitchen and administrative offices. As of its opening, scheduled for July 2000, wine lovers will be able to sample Duckhorn's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc during regular tastings.

In the meantime, Duckhorn is open for retail sales Monday through Saturday and offers tours and tastings by appointment Tuesday through Saturday.
