During the Long Cold Winters in Alaska Marilyn Usibelli has found plenty of time to work on great recipes!  In addition to the love of
Great food, the Usibelli family has been growing grapes in the Napa Valley for years.  Usibelli Vineyards are small, family owned vineyards set in the heart of Napa Wine Country.  Our Vineyards grow a variety of grapes to supply small and large vintners throughout Northern California.  Please feel free to visit Usibelli Vineyard's web site at


Our Featured Wines By The Glass:


Emmolo Sauvignon Blanc 

Tasting Notes

"Fresh and lively! Our 2008 Sauvignon Blanc is a true expression of the Rutherford vineyards. Layers of citrus aromas awaken the senses. A mouth-watering entry of lemon-lime and grapefruit follow through on the palate while traces of mineral and melon trail on the finish." Cheryl Emmolo

To learn more about Emmolo go directly to their web site at http://www.emmolowines.com/index.html or buy directly from them at



What is that wonderfully robust, floral and bright tropical taste? Is it green apple, tangerine or honeysuckle? Could it possibly be apricot, melon, pear or light vanilla? That’s the Conundrum. Our proprietarily secretive blend of California white grapes create a lush, creamy texture that leads to the mouth-watering question, “Mmmm, what’s in there?” We’re not telling. Can you guess?

Emmolo Merlot 

“Our 2007 vintage is bold with seductive layers of ripe fruit and eloquently balanced acidity. Generous layers of rich black cherry, berries and spice fill out the middle palate. A lengthy finish of sweet roasted coffee leaves behind one’s desire of another sip.” Cheryl Emmolo

To learn more about Emmolo go directly to their web site at http://www.emmolowines.com/index.html or buy directly from them at


Rossi-Wallace Pinot Noir 

The resulting 2008 Rossi-Wallace Pinot Noir is remarkably bright with sappy, wild cherry and earth aromas and flavors upon release. But don't misinterpret the youthful charm of this wine. It also has the structure and verve for interesting development over the years.

Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir
2008 Tasting Notes
Deep garnet color.  Luxurious and dynamic aromas of ripe strawberry, bright cherry and faint notes of spicy oak and vinilla.  The complexity of the palate smothly layers rich red currant notes and baking spice flavors with light smoke, earth and leather.  A balanced, velvety texture and supple tannins carry the wine through to a lingering, succulent finish.

Altamura Sangiovese 2006

The dark plum/ruby-hued, seductive 2006 Sangiovese exhibits notes of sweet cigar tobacco intermixed with plums, balsamic, strawberries, and black cherries. 

NEW RELEASE ~ The 2006 Sangiovese is another fabulous effort and will surely please all of our fans who love this varietal. Robert Parker, 92 pts.

   Chateau La Grande Roche Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

2006 Chateau La Grande Roche Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes


Very fine Cabernet aromas; dusty with rich cocoa and berry ripe fruit.  This is a beautifully clean, elegant and straight forward expression of ripe mountain grown Cabernet.  There is a subtlety to the nose and flavor which suggests a fine second tier Bordeaux.  Flavors are quite rich and satisfying.  One can tell that the wine will develop very positively over the next few years.

In addition to our Great Wines by the Glass we also have a wonderful Wine List.  Marilyn Usibelli's personal favorite is listed below. 

   Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet

"I find a flavor profile of dark chocolate, sweet tobacco, mocha, leather, brown spice, cedar, vanilla and sweet licorice.
The primary goodness of this wine is the presence of balance, with a supple texture, approachable grip and a fruit of the earth essence. "
Chuck Wagner
