About Freemark Abbey

Freemark Abbey is one of Napa Valley’s original Cabernet houses. With a legacy that dates to 1886, it was established as the region’s 16th bonded winery by Josephine Tychson, one of the first female vintners in California. Today, the winery is celebrated for crafting classically structured Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay from pedigreed sites in the Rutherford AVA, particularly the iconic Bosché and Sycamore vineyards. As one of the first wineries in the Napa Valley to establish a wine library, Freemark Abbey possesses one of the country’s most extensive wine cellars, underscoring the quality and of longevity of its admired Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
