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.
2010 was a long cool vintage. The grape ripened evenly, but was later than usual. As the season stretched out the worry of rain on the thin skinned Zinfandel became greater and greater. We harvested our Zinfandel before any real significant rain hit them and the grapes developed the wonderful fruit of the terrior from each vineyard.
Please check out all the pages we have on this website. Be sure to visit In Our Kitchen, which features recipes approved by my 19-year-old daughter and my 11 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 2th annual Zinfandel Experience.
