Welcome to Tulocay Winery (well... the website anyway)

Despite our reticence to toot our own horn — unlike many BIG NAME wineries who have legions of PR minions — we like to think we get our share of notice from folks who relish wine offerings from small, noncorporate, still family-owned, traditional wineries like ourselves.

The Tulocay Story

Few wine connoisseurs realize that Tulocay is one of the oldest wineries in Napa Valley. Founded in 1975, Tulocay has been acknowledged by Napa Valley insiders and old timers as having a style that represents Napa before it became "Beverly Hills-ified".

While many wines around the world today are made in the same so-called international style, Tulocay wines are crafted by traditional methods that reflect the character of the individual vineyard as expressed by the winemaker. They are wines meant to be an integral part of the meal. And many are wines created to be consumed in the future (global climate change permitting) as well as appreciated for their youthful forcefulness in their youth.

Like art, film, literature and politics, wine is an individual taste. One can seek out the highly rated and well publicized wines. That's fine. But how many really express art versus those that are simply manipulated to garner high scores in BIG NAME wine publications or from highly publicized wine blowhards?

This is a question that you, the wine drinker, must decide.

A note from Skippy

If you're looking for White Zinfandel, mass-produced Merlot, or sweet, fruity Chardonnay, go away!

But if your taste tends toward kick-out-the-jambs Cabernets, Syrahs and Zinfandels, you've come to the right place.

We also make svelte, subtle, Burgundy-style Pinot Noirs and very classy Napa-style Chardonnays.

Tulocay Winery has been around since 1975. But not many people have heard about us. That's 'cause the boss (Bill) believes the wine should reflect the essence of the vineyard and the philosophy of the winemaker, not the latest innovation of the marketing department or the bottom line of Wall Street financiers.

Peruse our website. Check out the wines. If you have any questions, just give us a call. Chances are the guy who answers the phone is the boss himself.

Dear friends:

If you tend to view askance the hyperbole on these pages, there's a nice write-up about Tulocay in Wine Country This Week. We'll call it "a second opinion."

The only problem with the article is that the writer goes on at length about Buddy, although she does characterize the beast as "little" and "yappy." I couldn't have said it better myself. At least Buddy doesn't chase me like the winery cats.

The price list for all our wines is here. To view our recently released offerings go to Our News.
