About Us

Paul Johnson dreamed of making wine from an early age and in 2003, along with friend and legendary winemaker Gary Galleron, that dream became a reality. 

Having owned a wine store, Paul has a different vision than other winemakers. He set out to make wines that are high quality and affordable to enjoy any day not just on special occasions. 

Gary grew up in the vineyards on the street in Rutherford which bears his family name, Galleron Road. Gary started at Chateau Montelena and went on to produce world-class, award-winning wines including Whitehall Lane, Grace Family, Hartwell, Vineyard 29, Del Dotto and Seavey.

Our Wines

With all the exceptional wineries in Napa, we would be crazy to say we make the best wines here. However, we feel we make some of the best wines when you consider price vs. quality. Try our flagship Rutherford Cabernet or one of our “everyday wines” under the Smokescreen label. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy making them.
