Gaderian Wines is a women-owned boutique wine producer focused on limited production wines from the best vineyards in Napa Valley.
Long-time friends and wine lovers, former Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin Hall and Winemaker Shaina Harding started the winery in 2017 with a mission to bring people together to gather and enjoy great food and wine. They named their winery Gaderian after the Old English verb meaning “to gather.”
Natalie Coughlin Hall is most known for her athletic successes after earning 12 Olympic medals for USA Swimming. Throughout her professional athletic career, Natalie has maintained a love for food and wine. She grew up just outside Napa Valley and has always had an interest in the wine industry. She wrote a cookbook “Cook To Thrive,” and is passionate about pairing her recipes with wine. She is eagerly learning the winemaking process through Shaina’s tutelage and is looking forward to pairing her recipes with Gaderian Wine’s Pinot Noir, Chenin Blanc, and Chardonnay.
Shaina Harding is a Florida transplant who misses the beach, but wouldn’t trade her vines for the world. She is a graduate of the UC Davis Viticulture & Enology Program who has been living and making wine in the Napa Valley since 2008. She has had the great fortune of being able to work with many of Napa’s most creative and influential winemakers as well as touch all of their grapes. She loves being among the vines and working in the vineyards, but her heart lies in the cellar, gently guiding her wines from juice and must to bottled joy.
“I love making amazing Napa Valley Wines, but I wanted to make something directly from my heart. I wanted something that was different, exciting, and full of love. So, I decided to start Gaderian with a long-time friend and fellow wine lover. I wanted to make something that we would both love to drink and share when we gathered with friends and loved ones.” – Co-Founder/Winemaker Shaina Harding
