Cabernet Sauvignon, AQUINAS, Napa Valley, California

Aquinas wines are named for St. Thomas Aquinas, the seminal 13th century Italian priest, theologian and philosopher who dedicated his life to reconciling reason and faith.  Aquinas wines philosophy is that sophisticated, luxurious wines from preeminent appellations should be enjoyed by all.  Don Sebastiani & Sons, the owners of Aquinas Wines, meticulously scour Napa Valley, leveraging generations of deep relationships to find the perfect fruit. Then, they utilize their decades of award-winning winemaking experience—itself an inherent blend of science and mysticism—to create wines that transcend their temporal origins.

In 1904 Samuele Sebastiani purchased winemaking equipment and made his first 500 gallon batch of wine, selling it in bulk out of his cart in the streets.  One hundred years and four generations later the Sebastiani family continues in that entrepreneur spirit of buying grapes, making great wine and selling it with style and grace.  Donny Sebastiani says “At the end of the day, I've learned that the best thing a winery can offer is well-made wines of consistent quality. That's our family tradition, and that continues to be our vision for Don & Sons."
