About our Winemaking:

Oak barrel fermentation and aging play different roles for every wine. At Audubon Cellars, our winemaker Barry Grushkowitz, uses Never and Limousin French oak in varying degrees to add complexity and balance to his wines without comrpomising subtle fruit flavors. The final result is a collection of wines that offers fresh vintages to be enjoyed today, as well as vintages whose full potential will be realized in the years to come.

About our Location:

Centrally located to all of California's prime grape growing regions (and only fifteen minutes from downtown San Francisco), we select our grapes from the vineyards that are best suited to developing the distinct characteristics of each grape variety. At harvest, grape clusters are picked before sunrise and arrive at the winery to be crushed in small lots during the cool hours of early morning.

About the Audubon Labels:

Audubon Collection wine labels are graces with reproductions of aquantints from naturalist John James Audubon's (1785-1851). Visit our page on John James to learn more about this great naturalist and painter.

About the Wines

Since 1986 we have been producting award winning Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Late Harvest Varietals at our unique urban winery located adjacent to Aquatic Park in Berkeley, California.

Our wines are featured under two distinct labels. Audubon Collection presents the finest of our vineyard designated and produced wines. Our Sonoma Mission label represents our negotiant wines, loaded with fruit, true to the appelation and brought to market at mid-range prices. Read below for more information on each of these brands.
