—  Maison d'AMis —

Maison d'Amis translates as house of friends and was started in 2013 by friends and neighbors, Alisha Woodford, Michael Villas, Nicolae & Pavlina Florea.

Our winery was created by a chance opportunity to work with Steve Matthiasson and an exceptional vineyard site in Coombsville. It has grown to include sites in the Rutherford benchland and a cool climate site in the Oak-knoll District, as well as Clarksburg.

Classically made Cabernet Sauvignon is our primary focus, and we are influenced by the great Cabernet's made in Napa during 1970's and early 1980's. We cannot say enough, how grateful we are for the opportunity to produce wine that we love, with people we love in this stunningly beautiful and abundant valley called Napa.

The wines are available via our mailing list, select restaurants and retail.
