Our Winemaking

Our winemakers have been crafting some of the greatest expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon and artisan red wines from Napa and Sonoma’s most coveted sites for over 80 years. Today, we build on this legacy established by our founder Louis M. Martini, crafting world-class wines that celebrate Cabernet’s indelible combination of power and structure married with elegance, grace and finesse.
Cellar No. 254

Cellar No. 254

With a nod toward the Louis M. Martini Winery address at 254 St. Helena Highway, Cellar 254 is both an artist’s studio and state-of-the-art laboratory. Home to winemaking for our most sought-after, small-lot Cabernets and other wines—including Lot 1 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Monte Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon and Monte Rosso Gnarly Vine Zinfandel—Cellar No. 254. affords our esteemed winemakers the tools they need to imbue these special wines with superb balance and texture thanks to precise, gentle handling of the grapes from harvest to bottle.
