A brief history
For years, Bill Foley and his wife Carol Johnson Foley had the desire to open a winery bearing their name in Napa Valley. In addition to appreciating the grandeur of Napa's scenery and the rhythm of its lifestyle, the couple has always enjoyed the opulence and complexity of its wines. With the launch of Foley Johnson in 2012, the Foleys have created a world-class winery with premier vineyards and a historic tasting room right in the heart of America's preeminent winegrowing region.; Located along Highway 29 in the prestigious Rutherford AVA, Foley Johnson exemplifies the understated elegance and casual warmth of the Valley. The winery, previously Sawyer Cellars, produces two tiers of wine: Napa Valley and Handmade. The Napa Valley tier focuses on Bordeaux varieties from the nearly 50 acres of estate vineyards around the winery in Rutherford. The Handmade tier features special small-lot bottlings from some of the renowned winemakers in the Foley Family Wines group.
