Tasting Events

Meet Proprietor Jeff Loomis LIVE on SIP Virtual Wine Tasting and Education to learn about the 100% Rhone varieties grown on the hilltop Napa Valley vineyards.


Jeff Loomis’ inspiration began in Avignon, with a bike ride through Chateauneuf-du-Pape. It was an experience and a revelation about wine that awaked him to what wine could be – wine as part of an experience, part of a meal, as opposed to just a beverage. “It’s got to be fun. There’s a lot of pretentiousness in the wine business. You have to drink it this way, out of this glass. Let’s just enjoy the experience of being with friends, having this wonderful food together and living life to its fullest.”

All grapes are grown on the Loomis Estate. Six clones of Syrah, 3 clones Grenache Noir, Mourvedre, Counoise, Grenache Blanc and Viognier at an elevation of 2000 feet in the middle of an oak forest. Napa is famous the world over for Cabs. And here you have Rhones. When people discover Rhones, the lightbulb goes off. Why not be a Rhone rebel? Why not try something different? People come up and drink Cabernet and Chardonnay every day, but now they can have a Rhone experience in the Napa Valley. Loomis wines are fun and named after the elements. Whimsical and memorable. Winery is now offering their latest round of blends, with only microscopic productions.

About the Winery
Loomis Estate Vineyards
Established in 2007, Loomis Estate Vineyards is relatively new to the Napa Valley, but already creating exceptional wines. Jeff Loomis, founder and vintner of Loomis Family Vineyards, doesn’t like to be told no. When he purchased the majestic mountain property that would become his home and vineyard, he was told he couldn’t grow Rhône varietals there. He’s had a passion for Rhône wines ever since studying abroad and cycling through Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the South of France.
