Elkhorn Peak Cellars is family-owned and operated, growing and producing only 800 cases a year. We started our Club to share our passion with our friends and Pinot Noir fans around the country. The Elkhorn Peak Cellars Wine Club is staffed by Ken and wife, Faith; each shipment is packed by hand. Our small production limits the size of our club, which enables us to maintain a special connection with all of our members.

Elkhorn Peak has been honored each year with numerous awards and kudos, including the most important ones, those from our friends and fans.

“It's a small operation but the wines are better than any I have ever had.  The Pinot is one of the best wines I have ever had.”  Jill V. (Yelp)

“Ken's passion for what he does is unrivaled.  What a great winery in the southern part of Napa (Jameson Canyon).  Mainly Pinot Noir.  He's doing everything right.” Don H. (Yelp)

“We absolutely love your Pinot Noir! We love Pinot Noir and there just isn’t another one out there that compares to Elkhorn Peak. Nothing compares…truly!” -Michele & Eric Fort, West Chester, PA

“Due to their location on the rocky slopes and bright sun, this is one of the rare Napa wineries that specializes in Pinot Noir - a refreshing break from the Rutherford Dusty Cabs you will have down in the valley.” -Mike M. (Yelp)

“Props to the old school methods of Elkhorn, the quality seriously shows in their wines.” -Brian B. (Yelp)

“Your dessert wine makes my mouth sing. I absolutely love it. Thank you.” -Sylvia

“Carefully crafted wine from a wonderful family owned gem of a place.” -Sara E. (Yelp)

“We don’t drink wine everyday, but when we do, it must be what we consider an excellent wine. For many years, the only wines we preferred were French and Italian reds. Virtually all the California wines we had tasted so far were ‘headache country’ for my wife, or were flat out not of good quality. Then, with our membership in the Gold Medal Wine Club (the only source we knew about for really good California wine in NC), we discovered your Pinot Noir. We’ve ordered a number of cases from you since. We rarely drink white wines, but yesterday, we opened a bottle of your 2006 Chardonnay to go with a wonderful chicken meal my wife prepared and were really impressed. As far as we are concerned, you produce the best wine in California at any price. This is my clumsy way of thanking you for the wines you produce in your vineyard. We enjoy them very much. Keep up the excellent work.” -Christa & Bob Faut. Cornelius, NC.

“Best dessert wine ever.” -Jacqueline W. (Yelp)

“I want to thank you for providing me with some great wines over the last several years. I also want to thank you for your great customer service. You’re a top notch individual with a great winery.” -John G. Wilcox, Dublin, OH.

"A lovely Pinot Noir for drinking now. Light-bodied, dry, crisp and silky, it has complex flavors of cherries, cola, Dr. Pepper, orange zest and peppery spices."
