Rubissow – Napa Valley

Formerly known as Rubissow Sargent;   Rubissow is a “boutique” winery and vineyard in the Mt Veeder AVA of Napa Valley.

I was lucky enough to be invited to this outing and despite the 100 degree heat, it was great!   We were welcomed (15 people or so) by Peter Rubissow, Leslie (Public Outreach/Marketing), and Autumn who is their “get-it-done girl” (Autumn handles wine club, hospitality, and is a CIA-Hyde Park Grad and a Sommelier- She prepared the delicious lunch)  Tim Milos  is their wine maker and he joined us at the end.

As I captured a wealth of Video, Below is Video Segment 1.   It is the quick version of  Rubissow‘s History, including a story about Andre Tchelistcheff. I also have some Photographs from the Rubissow Harvest which we were all invited back to attend on 10/10/09.  More Videos to come….

    Hi Andrew,
    Is there any chance that the Mount Veeder Appellation Council could use the “non-branded” section of this video. Perhaps you have more video showing the mountain terrain?
    All the best,

    Are these guys distributed in Oregon? How many cases per.Cab Franc top 5 of this years quaffing?

    Their Trompettes is their signature blend for cab franc. It is quite good and given their limited production and location in Napa, I blv it is a good value for a remarkable wine.

    I can not speak to their distribution in OR. But here is a full tasting notes on their 2005 which I have tried on several occasions.

    I am not sure why it is not available online, but I am sure if you called Peter or Ariel they’d get you set-up with an order or availability in OR.

    Hope this helps!
