• Patio at Regusci Winery
The Vibe: 

Napa history buffs will appreciate the status of Regusci Winery as a “ghost winery,” that is, one that has its roots in the early Napa winemaking of the 19th century. Originally built in 1878 by one Terrill Grigsby, the winery was purchased by the family of its current owners in 1932. It survived the difficult economic and anti-alcohol periods of the early 20th century as a ranch, growing crops such as corn and prunes and raising livestock in addition to grapes. Today, the son and grandson of the original Regusci owner have returned to full time wine production. The tasting room, housed next to the original three story stone building, enjoys a rich, recycled-wood-centric feel thanks to the several rough hewn display tables and barrel-stave tasting bar. Visitors can enjoy a pour of a rich cabernet, and then stroll among the olive and citrus trees, or sit at one of the convenient outdoor tables.
