Taft Street Winery, Sebastopol

Russ Irwin, BS 80, Co-Owner

The term “garagistes” originated in Bordeaux in the 1980’s and referred to a group of innovative winemakers who produced exceptional wines in their garages rather than in grand chateaux. Since 1979, Taft has carried on that garagistes tradition with limited production, handcrafted wines from select Sonoma County vineyards.

Discount: Free tasting for Haas students & alumni; 25% discount for online purchases of full cases with "Haas25" promo code.
