A brief history

Retro Cellars was founded in 2003 when Mike and Kara Dunn, natives of the Napa Valley wine industry, decided to make a wine of their own. Their current production includes two Petite Sirahs, one from the historic Park Muscatine Vineyard on Howell Mountain, and a Napa Valley Petite Sirah from the valley floor. Their wines embody the concept of “terroir”, a wine’s expression of the place of origin in the bottle, and an old world winemaking style that Mike learned from his dad, Randy.

Retro Cellars Zinfandel Chiles Valley Bottle Preview
Retro CellarsZinfandel Chiles Valley

Our Zinfandel is well-balanced in style, with clean acidity and bright fruit. Mike’s use of mostly neutral barrels lets the old vine fruit shine through. The TA (total acidity) at harvest was 6.9, extremely high, yielding a Zinfandel fresh and lively on the palate.

Our Syrah is the biggest, boldest wine in our lineup. Gobs of red and black fruits and a mouthful of baking spices, this is our expression of a northern-Rhône styled wine.
