2023 marks Cakebread Cellars’ 50th anniversary, cementing the winery’s status as one of Napa Valley’s quintessential estates. The winery was founded in 1973 by Jack and Dolores Cakebread with the launch of their first vintage of Chardonnay, which remains a staple of the brand.
Over the past 50 years, Cakebread Cellars has expanded its production from Chardonnay to other classic Napa Valley wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc. With its gradual growth, Cakebread has acquired vineyards in several California regions including Anderson Valley and Carneros, and now works with 14 vineyards.
