Garage Crafted

Like the renegade bordeaux winemakers known as Garagistes Taft Street began in a garage rather than a grand chateau, stressing quality without pretense.

From a backyard Berkeley garage to a former apple processing plant in Sebastopol, California, the family at Taft Street is proud to craft limited production, crowd pleasing wines from select Sonoma County vineyards.

About Us

Family owned & operated since 1979

The term “garagistes” originated in Bordeaux in the 1980s and refers to innovative winemakers who produce exceptional wines in their garages rather than in grand chateaux. Since 1979, we have carried on the garagistes tradition of creativity and excellence in a down-to-earth locale.
