Not yet ten years old, B Cellars Winery is already redefining winemaking and modernizing old World techniques. B Cellars grew out of the combined passions of Jim Borsack and Duffy Keys.
Jim and Duffy founded B Cellars Winery in 2003 out of a common love of wine and were soon joined by Kirk Venge, named one of the Top 20 New Winemakers in the World by Food & Wine Magazine in 2005.
Dedicated to the artisan creation of complex and beautifully balanced wine, B Cellars utilizes the French technique négociant—obtaining grapes from several vineyards to blend into a single bottle. Grapes are collected from over 20 high-quality vineyards within the Napa Valley region. In a modern twist, B Cellars Winery not only produces blends from multiple vineyards, but it also produces blends of different varietals. This contemporary approach results in food-friendly, complex wines with layers of flavor.
The B Cellars blends are Jim’s dreams finally reaching fruition because the crafting of versatile wines means they pair well with nontraditional wine-pairing foods. Food plays an important role at B Cellars Winery, where Chef Christina Machamer, Season Four winner of Hell’ s Kitchen, comes in. She leads interactive food and wine tasting programs to show winery guests, through sensory experiences, the complexity and depth of the wine.
When visiting the B Cellars Winery, wine tourists can taste inside the charming salon or enjoy a gourmet boxed lunch outside on the patio.
