Hagafen Cellars

Hagafen Cellars Hagafen Cellars is located in the Napa Valley, in the heart of California's premier wine grape region. Owned and operated by Irit and Ernie Weir, the winery was founded in 1979. The first vintage released commercially was harvested in 1980. In the ensuing years, we have grown from a small partnership producing wine with grapes from Winery Lake Vineyard, then owned by Rene DiRosa, to a well-established wine company whose wines are distributed throughout North America and overseas. Our wines have been served on numerous occasions at the White House to visiting foreign dignitaries. In November 1999, we broke ground for our new winery on the Silverado Trail. The winery was completed in time for the harvest of 2000. The tasting room & visitors center opened in May 2002. Hagafen Cellars currently produces 8,000 cases of premium table wines each year.
