The AuburnJames Winery was born in 2005 with the first crush of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the Raywood Vineyard in Napa Valley and a handshake between Matthew Ospeck and winemaker James Frost. These two men share a passion for artisan winemaking, and are committed to a process that is, for the most part, conducted by hand. Together, they are intent on producing small lots of Bordeaux style Napa Valley wines that are designed specifically for the AuburnJames wine club membership.
Several expansions now see the winery at 7,000 sq ft and producing approximately 3,500 cases annually, however most AuburnJames varietals and blends do not exceed 400 cases.
AuburnJames wines begin in the Spring of each growing season when Jim & Matt walk the vineyards discussing what each would like to achieve for the club membership for that vintage. The plan is then written in pencil and Mother Nature makes the changes that she deems necessary for the vintage. At harvest, fruit is carefully selected from each block within each vineyard. These relationships with independent growers throughout Northern California enable AuburnJames to enjoy the best fruit that many of the AVAs have to offer. From great fruit, and Jim’s artistry, AuburnJames has been able to produce award winning wines year over year.
In May of 2011 we completed the Danville Tasting Room & Gallery at 321 Hartz Avenue. Set in heart of historic downtown Danville and wrapped by an art gallery which showcases some outstanding local and nationally known contemporary impressionist works, AuburnJames is intent on building a loyal following one tasting at a time. Our signature Napa Valley blend each year is the Meritage Artist Series which showcases the work of an exceptional artist. This collaboration is truly special and is found under Meritage on the Wine tab on our website.
Presently, Matt & Jim are very busy writing the next chapters of what they hope will one day be a great story…The AuburnJames Winery. Join the club and be a part of that history!
Just prior to harvest in 2015, after 10 years of producing award-winning complex and nuanced wines from outstanding Napa Valley vineyards, our family relocated AuburnJames Winery to a historic property nestled between the Napa River and the Silverado Trail in the heart of Napa Valley.
We welcome you to visit us for a private, 90-minute Tasting Experience inside our intimate new Tasting Cottage or on the deck overlooking our winery, vineyards and bocce court. We are open daily by appointment from 10am – 4pm.
The Tasting Experience includes 5 hand-selected AuburnJames Wines for $35/person. Tours of the Estate, Vineyard and Winery are available upon request and when weather permits.
