Nominated for: BEST Napa Winery
August “Joe” Briggs and his family started his own wine brand with the 1995 vintage, and he continues to run the winery today with the help of family members and dedicated employees, our family “adoptees.” Our small size provides Joe total control over the quality of August Briggs wines from vineyard to bottle. Bob and Betty Briggs, Joe's parents, have worked in our tasting room, making new friends for the winery. Aaron and Jesse Inman, Joe's nephews, work in the winery cellar and tasting room. The entire winery has a real family feel to it, with a warm welcome for all our visitors.
