Welcome to D-Cubed Cellars website: a space dedicated to Zinfandel and the enjoyment of life, making wine, spending time with friends and good food.
D-cubed Cellars started in 1994 with the Howell Mountain Zinfandel made grapes grown at the Black Sears Vineyard. In 2010 D-cubed Cellars was called a Top Artisan Winery by Wine and Spirits Magazine, a wonderful honor.
2008 was an interesting year where patience was rewarded. It was a year of late rains in the spring and this put the grapes behind, but the long cool summer helped ripen Zinfandel into wines with lovely fruit, subtle tannins and wonderful spice.. Having 5 Zinfandels from this vintage demonstrates how well Zinfandel displays its terrior and how versatile Zinfandel can be!
Please check out all the pages we have on this website. Be sure to visit In Our Kitchen, which features recipes approved by my 16-year-old daughter and my 8 year old son, of course they pair well with D-cubed Cellars Wines.
When you are visiting the Napa Valley stop by my tasting room Vintner's Collective, 1245 Main St. in Napa. There you can taste D-cubed Cellars current wines, and those of several other small wonderful wineries.
I am a member of the Board of Directors and past President of ZAP so be sure to visit the ZAP website to learn about all things Zinfandel. It has the latest information on ZAP and the exciting events that are coming up including the 22th annual Zinfandel Festival.
