Like the renegade Bordeaux winemakers known as Garagistes, Taft Street began in a garage rather than a grand chateau, stressing quality without pretense. Our handcrafted wines are perfect for friends & family.

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.

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.

REGIONAL STAY AT HOME ORDER

Due to the Bay Area regional shelter in place order, we are temporarily closed for tastings. We will be sure to provide you an update here and on social media as soon as we have more information regarding our reopening.

2017 Russian River Valley Catie’s Corner Chardonnay

A perfect pairing for popular winter dishes and equally great for sipping on its own, the 2017 Catie’s Corner Chardonnay is a delightful wine to help welcome in the new year. Notes of honeysuckle and Meyer lemon complement hints of toasted almond and pastry crust. Medium-bodied, the harmonious apple and melon components blend perfectly with spicy hints of oak. The result lingers on the palate and long impresses. More Info.
