In 2003, California Cellars was established by Tom Baldacci and Jim Peters.Jim has assisned Donni Burke to take on the management of California Cellars; while Tom stays very busy running his family winery, Baldacci Vineyards, located in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley.
For the first couple of years, our grapes were sold to other wineries. With the release of our 2005 Estate Chardonnay,we have accomplished the quality level we wish to represent and provide to future customers.Our label demonstrates our desire to keep it simple and lighthearted, but always quality! Our 05 Chardonnay sold out immediately . Our 2006 Estate Chardonnay was released in June and we have planned to increase production with our 2007 harvest. With the addition of our 2006 Viognier and 2005 Malbec, we are focusing on on-premise marketing. The Chardonnay & Merlot will be retail driven.
