About Silver Oak and Twomey Cellars
Silver Oak is single-minded in their 40 plus year pursuit of exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley and Alexander Valley. Twomey Cellars combines 40 years of experience with the spirit of innovation to create a Bordeaux style of Merlot, American Viticulture Area Specific Pinot Noirs, and a Sauvignon Blanc from estate owned vineyards in Oakville, Calistoga, Sebastopol, and Healdsburg. Both wineries create exceptional, food-friendly, moderate alcohol wines that are deliciously drinkable upon release or years later.
