Robert Goodman Wines

Robert Goodman Wines Robert Goodman began producing fine wines in 1977 with the sole vision of creating an exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon from premium Howell Mountain, Napa Valley grapes from the critically acclaimed viticulturalist, Mike Beatty. He has achieved and surpassed his original vision. The winery now handles just under one hundred barrels annually, which produce approximately 2500 cases per vintage. While Howell Mountain, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has remained the flagship for our micro-winery, the list of varietals has grown to include Beatty Ranch Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Carneros Chardonnay and even a late harvest Zinfandel, reminiscent of a fine Port wine. The principle of operation most responsible for the success of the winery is the procurement of unparalleled premium fruit. Recently, Goodman has expanded his grape acquisitions to include Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from the Sangiacomo Family Vineyard in the Carneros Appellation. He has also purchased Cabernet Sauvignon from the Polaris Vineyard, Howell Mountain, Napa Valley, from which he has created another "stellar" Cab. In addition, Goodman is proud to support highly select local vineyards in Humboldt County, California. The winery works closely with the Henry Rose Vineyard of Orleans (Cabernet Sauvignon) and the Weyhmiller Vineyards of Alderpoint (Pinot Noir), purchasing selected fruit from each.
