Robert Craig Winery

elton slone
Elton arrived in 2004 and spearheaded the overhaul and reinvestment of the farming, winemaking and sales structure at the Craig. Now a managing partner of the winery, he spends much of his time traveling around the country spreading the Craig word. Elton brings his passion for old world wines to the new world of Craig with a production philosophy based on site expression.
 
Rachel took the helm of the Robert Craig Cabernet Club back in 2004 (the same year Elton arrived), and she has officially reached her goal of giving our members the closest, most personal attention possible. Though she comes from a rural Mennonite farming background in Pennsylvania, Rachel is now a Napa gal through and through.
 
The Robert Craig winery estate, hidden away at the summit of Howell Mountain, offers their Cabernet Club and Alpine Society members a beautiful retreat with panoramic views of the Napa Valley. As the winery is not open to the public, the Robert Craig Tasting Salon in downtown Napa is a popular gathering place for Cabernet Sauvignon fans.  

Robert Craig’s wine program showcases award-winning, terroir-based Cabernet Sauvignons from exceptional mountain and hillside vineyards, each with a unique personality.

Affinity: This hillside-grown, Bordeaux-style Cabernet blend is full-bodied and elegant, rewarding with luscious black cherry and raspberry.

Mount Veeder: A classic mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, brimming with dense, generous black fruit, mocha and cassis, interwoven with supple tannins.

Howell Mountain: Rich and concentrated, this Cabernet is renowned for its bright, intense wild berry fruit, dusty mountain spice and white pepper, underlain by silky tannins.

Spring Mountain:  Distinctive bright, lush wild blackberry and exotic plum fruit define this Cabernet, with fine, dusty tannins providing exceptional structure.
