From The Winemakers

Raised in the Napa Valley, wine is in our DNA. We created Taken Wine Company with a simple philosophy: to craft great wines to share with our friends.

RT @Thrillist: A Tater Tot Waffle Grilled Cheese with bacon and jalapeños is so much good it blows our mind. http://t.co/3ZJWqRUbry http://…

Great night meeting the guys from Florida Georgia Line and sharing some TAKEN with them! @flagaline @sutterhomewines #liveinthevineyard #takenshots
  • Great wine made by great friends.
  • Great friends made by great company.
  • Great company made by great wine.

Raised in the small, winegrowing town of St. Helena, in Napa Valley, wine is in our DNA. We realized our mutual dream when we began producing wine, breaking away from our winemaking families, and developing ideas to craft a unique identity for ourselves.

As we approached the completion of our college degrees, our passion for wine and business was evident.

The Taken Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was our first wine created, released in 2010. Each succeeding vintage represents another step we have "taken" on this journey.

We have now established a timeless, fun-spirited, wordplay venture to call our own. Whether taken, complicated, or available, we hope you enjoy our wines!
