The PlumpJack Group was founded in 1992 by Gavin Newsom, a San Francisco entrepreneur who was elected that city's mayor in 2003, and Gordon Getty, a San Francisco composer and philanthropist, when they opened a wine store called PlumpJack Wines in the Fillmore neighborhood of San Francisco. Over the next five years, the business expanded to include a boutique hotel and three restaurants. PlumpJack Winery was founded in 1997 when the PlumpJack Group acquired a century-old 53acre vineyard in Napa Valley on Oakville Cross Road. The winery facility and tasting room were designed by Leavitt-Weaver, the same design firm that the PlumpJack Group used for the designs of its restaurants and hotels.

I am only giving them 2 stars instead of 1 because the "squeezed us in". It was just my husband and I. There were 4 people pouring, 2 people inside and 2 people seated outside and I could not get anybody to pour me. We each got a tasting, and the lady skipped ahead of me and kept pouring for my husband. I asked her 3 times to pour the next wine for me, and she walked away. Disappointed.
A fabulous vineyard, great wines and a lovely place to watch the valley
