About Winery

The Piña family’s roots in the Napa Valley are deep—eight generations deep—a fact that gives them no small amount of gravitas when it comes to producing wines of great distinction. Today, the wine industry is one of the last bastions of family farming in this country—a fact that the Piña family never takes for granted. With a foundation built on a storied past, this remarkable family has been making wine commercially for over 30 years, and has been making wines and tending Napa Valley vineyards for over 150 years. It’s no surprise that the Piña family, with its eight generations of expertise, is responsible for crafting award-winning wines with Winemaker Anna Monticelli at the helm capturing the true essence of Napa Valley.

Piña Napa Valley was built in 1981 on the grounds of the family’s heritage home on the Silverado Trail. Currently managed by John, Larry, Ranndy and Davie Piña, the winery and vineyards are renowned for their place in Napa Valley’s history.

After traveling to California, their great-great-grandfather Bluford Stice found that the vast open space at the edge of the continent appealed to his adventurous spirit. So in 1856, he led a wagon train and brought his family to the Napa Valley all the way from Missouri. His father, Moses Stice, began growing grapes in the Napa Valley in the 1860s. Bluford’s son, Lafayette, was born in Napa Valley in 1860 and went on to become a leader in the Napa Valley wine industry at the turn of the twentieth century; his achievements as a winemaker at Harris Winery (now Martin Estate), Brun and Chaix Winery (now Ladera) and Inglenook Winery are widely documented in Napa Valley’s historical records. Lafayette grew grapes and made wine from vineyards just south of St. Helena, where Stice Lane is today.

94 points Wine Enthusiast
Bright red currant is complemented by dark, brooding black fruit tones in this complex, nuanced and grippy wine, young and showy in its mountain genetics. Forest floor, mint, cedar and graphite fleck the fruit, with complexity knocking on the door. (VB) (6/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Buckeye Vineyard from Howell Mountain is from a highly regarded site in this AVA. The wine reveals loads of mulberry and plum, sweet cherry, a touch more minerality and earth, also full-bodied opulence, which seems to be the hallmark of the winemaking in Pena. This is, again, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with a dense ruby/purple color. Delicious now, it is capable of lasting 15 or more
