A Passion of Brothers

The Buoncristiani brothers are bonded not only by blood, but also by a shared passion, vision, and dedication for handcrafting ultra premium wines that accentuate the enjoyment of life.

The Buoncristiani brothers were born and raised in Napa Valley from a long lineage of Italian winemakers and wine lovers.  We, the Buoncristiani brothers, take pride in performing all aspects of enology, viticulture, wine production, and art design in order to share with you a true expression of our winemaking passion. Our motto is quality not quantity and we craft our wines without compromise. Handcrafting these limited production wines ourselves allows for the utmost attention to detail of every drop of every gallon in each barrel.

"One of my favorite under-the-radar wineries is Buoncristiani." - Robert Parker, Jr., 



98 Points - 2016 Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon - THE CORE - "Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Core leaps from the glass with gregarious scents of crushed wild blueberries, chocolate-covered black cherries, black raspberries and warm cassis with touches of candied violets, licorice, potpourri, black tea and cigar boxes. Full-bodied and packed to the gills with stacks of black fruit and floral layers, it has a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing very long and exquisitely perfumed." - Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate   YES, I'd Like to Buy A Bottle!

95 Points - 2016 Buoncristiani Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - "Containing a 4% splash of Malbec, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very deep garnet-purple colored and displays warm black plums, black cherries and black berries with wafts of redcurrants, cedar chest, dried Provence herbs, lavender and spice box. Full, firm and velvety textured, the palate yields mouth-filling black fruits and spicy layers with a very long, perfumed finish." - Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate    YES, I'd Like to Buy A Bottle!

91+ Points - 2016 Buoncristiani Napa Valley O.P.C. Proprietary Red - "The 2016 Proprietary Red Blend O.P.C. is a blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Malbec, 24% Syrah and 4% Merlot. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up tons of earth-inspired scents—tree bark, tilled soil, underbrush and fungi—with a core of blackberries and blackcurrants plus hints of tobacco and bay leaves. Full-bodied, firmly textured and with great freshness, it has a muscular black fruit palate and long earth-laced finish." - Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate   YES, I'd Like to Buy A Bottle!
