'Provenance,' a word that originates from the French language, means "origin" or "source."

A provenance is the record of ownership of a piece of art from its creation to the present. For connoisseurs, a work's provenance serves as a guarantee of a its authenticity. Our name reflects our goal of producing fine wines that are authentic works of art.
In geology, provenance is the source of materials that make up an area's sediment. The origin of a vineyard's soil is critical since the soil drives the wine's quality, flavors and aromas, eclipsing viticulture and winemaking differences.


History:

Our inaugural release, Provenance Vineyards 1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, established the winery's style: an elegant yet powerfully rich wine with deep, intense flavors that reflect the vintage and vineyard. With the 2000 vintage we expanded our family of wines to include Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon and Napa Valley Merlot. Since then we've built a portfolio of single vineyard and appellation designated Cabernets, Merlots, and Sauvignon Blancs.

Visit and taste our handcrafted small-lot Bordeaux-style wines on our beautiful patio with panoramic views of the Valley or in our elegant tasting room.

Not enough room in this comment box to write everything I want to say. Very disappointed with Provenance. Not a very friendly greeting. Upgraded to premium tasting at $45 person. They served us warm wine that was sitting out in the sun. Server was new and gave us descriptions of the wine with comments like "I really like this one". Made us walk inside to pay at the end;$200 for an awful experience

Provenance ranked at the top of our list of winery visits. We did the tasting as well as the special barrel tasting which really added a nice touch to our overall experience at Provenance, and the wines were picked as the top wines tasted out of the 3 wineries we visited in Napa that day! The Cabernet's are some of the best we have tried and the Hewitt tops them all!

Provenance is always our favorite stop. We love the wine, especially the Howell Mtn Cab and the Port. The people who serve are always the best with good stories, wine pairing notes and full of good humor. We had friends visiting from out of town and it was my husband's birthday. It was extra special.

Provenance has been my favorite Cab for the last 10 years and to experience the winery was fabulous! The barrel room was open when we walked in, so we could smell the oak which was delightful. The space was clean, airy and open - while we tasted in the main room, there was plenty of seating for outdoor and indoor public and private tastings. The wine was just as amazing than I remember!

I booked my Tasting appointment with my wine club BV and sister winery to Provenance. I was told I would receive 4 complimentary tastings and have to pay for 2. When I arrived with my guests and clients I was told by our wine educator Debbie that we would be charged for all 6. She said the complimentary tastings were not longer valid. I then got on the phone with BV and told Debbie was incorrect.

Gorgeous day; patio tasting; great wines. This was my first visit since joining one of your wine clubs. We (my wife and I) brought local friends who thought the tasting was one of the finest in the valley. Our host, Shawn, was knowledgeable and professional. He even introduced us to your former winemaker, Tom Rinaldi. Tom was very warm and funny. Look forward to my next visit.

It was a brisk afternoon in Rutherford and although we were scheduled to be outside, Debbie anticipated the comfort of the group and reserved a space inside for us. Great experience overall!

I am a member and was very disappointed. I brought guests and rather than educate and take pride in the wines and share information it was an hour long sales pitch to join the wine club. I was embarrassed and will most likely cancel my membership. I couldn't believe it.

We had the private room for the Hewitt tasting. The table was nicely set up and the room was comfortable and intimate for the occasion. The staff left us alone to enjoy our delicious wine and came inside the room every few minutes to ask if we would like refills and answer what questions we had. We were all quite impress and enjoyed the experience.

Our host, Jady, was awesome. We were there 3 years ago, so the new patio area was fantastic. Very good wine and again, Jady was extremely attentive and helpful.....just awesome. You have a great employee. My only suggestion would be to add bread sticks or small crackers. Just something to help cleanse the pallet. We like the people and the atmosphere. Some wineries are pretentious.
