One of the oldest wineries in the Napa Valley, Tulocay Wines was founded in 1974 by Bill Cadman. He is unique among Napa Valley wineries in that he has been producing both Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir for many years. Mark Bunter is the winery's winemaker consultant. The winery is located just east of downtown Napa in the Coombsville district, home to Haynes and Rancho Sarco vineyards. The Pinot Noir is said to be "Burgundian" in style, meaning it will age a long time.
The Tulocay Pinot Noir has been sourced from Haynes Vineyard since 1975.
Tulocay still offers free tastings and tours, but give Bill a phone call in advance (707-255-4064). Other reds include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.
