Kent Rasmussen Winery Description

Kent Rasmussen Winery began in 1979, when there were very few vineyards planted in the Napa Valley area called Carneros. Most thought the climate and soil conditions too harsh to grow grapes. Carneros experienced extreme climates, something that the owner Kent Rasmussen found very beneficial. He became one of the top producers of wine in the area, putting Carneros on the map as one of the best grape growing regions in the world.

Kent Rasmussen has earned critical acclaim for his Pinot Noir, which has become legendary in area. Production originally started with small amounts of Pinot Noir crushed in a garage acting as a cellar and now, Kent and his wife, Celia Ramsay, run their winery full time. Since its modest beginnings, Kent Rasmussen Winery has evolved into one of the most important Pinot Noir producers in the Carneros region. Tastings are available for free by appointment only.
