Liparita Cellars was established in the early 1980s on Howell Mountain by owner Bob Burrows and winemaker and vineyardist Gove Celio. When the original vineyard was planted back in the late 1800s, it was named Liparita, or "little Lipari" because of the tremendous similarity between the red and white soils of Howell Mountain and those of the volcanic Lipari Islands off the coast of Sicily. Liparita's wines are still created using fruit from some of the most unique and exciting vineyards in the Napa Valley.
At Liparita Cellars, making the very best wine from the very best grapes is
our first priority. To insure this end, our winemaker scours the Napa Valley
and its sub-appellations, continually seeking fruit from both well-known and
undiscovered properties. His goal is to find fruit that will produce wines of
intense flavors and layered complexity. By blending fruit from vineyards that
express complementary qualities of soil, climate and exposures, we create wines
that express not just a diversity of textures and flavors, but capture the essence
of the distinctive soils and varied climates of Northern California as well.Liparita
Cellars plans to produce 10,000 case of wine - 4500 of Cabernet Sauvignon, 3500
