Garrett Ahnfeldt

Winemaker

G Wine Cellars
Napa, CA

Garrett Ahnfeldt was raised among the vines of Napa Valley, where he developed a love for farming while helping his parents grow their world class wine grapes.

 

Ahnfeldt Wine made its grand entrance into the wine world in 2002. Shortly after launching their brand name, they were awarded with 94 points and Merlot of the Year for their first vintage. Garrett was twenty two and attending college when the lure of the vines convinced him to move back to Napa and help with the family farming business.

 

Living out his passion for farming wasn’t enough and Garrett felt the need to taste his grapes. In 2006, G Wine Cellars emerged from this desire. Garrett believes that great wine is born in the vineyard, and because of his extensive amount of time working with the soil, he harbors a unique skill for making high quality grapes.

 

G Wine currently bottles fifteen hundred cases of Bordeaux style wine annually.  Their production is on the rise due in part to a very high demand for their superior product and in part because G Wine has in place a very workable 5 year strategic plan geared towards steady growth.
