Tuck Beckstoffer Wines
Tuck Beckstoffer Wines produces wines in three distinct portfolios. The Tuck Beckstoffer Estate (TBE) tier Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux blends from some of the greatest vineyards in the Napa Valley, while the 75 Wine Co. tier features wines from coastal vineyards in Lake County, Mendocino, and the Central Coast. The Dancing Hares tier is comprised of two Bordeaux blends- Mad Hatter Red Wine and Dancing Hares Red Wine, which are made primarily from our estate vineyard in St Helena.
Growing up in the vineyards and nurturing a love of farming and fine wine, Tuck Beckstoffer directs the grape growing, winemaking, and management of the business at Tuck Beckstoffer Wines. With the help and artistic direction of winemaker Shawn Johnson and consulting winemaker Philippe Melka, this trio of men grow and craft wines that reflect the individuality of the place where they are grown.
Tuck Beckstoffer arrived in the Napa Valley in 1975 and has been drawing inspiration from the vineyards ever since. His decades of farming experience in Napa, in addition to several years of viticultural work in New Zealand and France, shape his winemaking at every turn. Tuck’s first solo wine project began in 1997 when he crafted the first Tuck Beckstoffer Cabernet Sauvignon to rave reviews. After 30 years, Tuck still thrills at the daily task of walking vineyards, studying vines, and constantly seeking ways to make outstanding wines. His quest for excellence stems from a sincere desire to represent the best of what the Napa Valley can be.
The Seventy Five Wine Company
Tuck created the 75 Wine Company to commemorate the year that his family arrived in the Napa Valley. The concept of the 75 Wine Company is to over deliver on quality, while maintaining reasonable price points – i.e., the everyday wine for the connoisseur.
The original wines were the 75 Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc from the Amber Knolls Vineyard in Lake County. The Sum, our proprietary Red Wine blend quickly followed. Hogwash Rose and Melée Red Wine are two Grenache based wines that each are distinctly California but draw inspiration from the Rhone and Southern France. Melée Grenache Rose is our newest addition to the portfolio, with its inaugural release in March of 2017.
Tuck Beckstoffer Estate
The TBE tier consists of three wine brands: Mockingbird, Amulet and Semper. These wines are made exclusively at Tuck Beckstoffer Estate winery, in the St. Helena AVA of Napa Valley.
The primary focus is cultivating Bordeaux varietals and making red blends of substance and balance. Fruit is sourced from the estate vineyard in St. Helena as well as from vineyards on Howell Mountain, Rutherford and the eastern hills in Oakville. These wines are made under the Mockingbird and Amulet labels.
In addition to producing wines from Bordeaux varietals, we also produce small quantities of single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Sonoma coast under the Semper label.
Dancing Hares & Mad Hatter
Founded in 2003, the Dancing Hares Winery was acquired by Tuck Beckstoffer Wines in early 2016. The winery is located in St. Helena, Napa Valley. Continuing the legacy of the founders, the winery produces two Cabernet Sauvignon based wines. Dancing Hares Red Wine is the primary wine from the property. It is a study in elegance, power and place.
Mad Hatter is the second wine from Dancing Hares. It is a blend of Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot, coming from throughout Napa Valley. Mad Hatter is all about balance, blending the best grapes from the best appellations that Napa Valley has to offer.
