Featured Wine: Cartlidge & Browne Cabernet Sauvignon
Some 30 years ago, Tony Cartlidge was sitting in the cab of a cement mixer on a nuclear power plant construction site in Washington State, reading a book of great California winemakers. He decided that the wine business sounded better than the trucking business, hopped into his 1960s Rambler and headed to Napa Valley.

Tony wrangled himself a job, continued learning all about wine, sought out and discovered top North Coast vineyards and then vintage by vintage, built one of the most successful wine brands of the 1980s. Cartlidge & Browne wines continue to be known for their great quality and value. In fact, some say Cartlidge & Browne was America’s first garage winery—meaning hand-crafted wines created in small batches, without a formal winery building and estate vineyards.
