Joseph Phelps Vineyards

200 Taplin Rd.
St. Helena , CA , United States
(707) 963-2745

The former owner of a construction company in the 1960’s, Joseph Phelps decided to start his own winery after being commissioned to build Souverain, leading to the first vintage of the now famous Insignia in 1974. The main tasting room is reminiscent of a modern barn with views overlooking the estate valley. Visitors can enjoy the winery (by appointment only) in different ways: the terrace tasting, which is a casual sampling of six wines on the terrace; the private tasting that takes place in the Insignia room for members only; and seminars, which are 90-minute informative discussions on winemaking.
