Big, small. Bold, timid. There really is no counterpart to the word minuscule in English. In French the opposite is majuscule, literally meaning a capital letter. Or in Latin, something rather large though not quite enormous.
The juxtaposition of big and small embodies our wine making philosophy. We craft big, yet elegant and balanced wines, from the best single-vineyards in the Napa Valley. Our award-winning wines are produced in very small lots with an intense focus on quality. We specialize in Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, producing under 500 cases per year.
In 2018, we started Majuscule to make wines that have body and elegance, are fruit-forward and very approachable. We source grapes from stellar vineyards in the sub appellations of the Napa Valley and most of our fruit comes from the Mount Veeder AVA on the western side of the valley, 1,800 feet above sea level. As we grow, our goal is to make wines from each of Napa's western mountain sub appellations.

We'd love to host a private tasting for you with our winemaker at our tasting space in Napa next to the Oxbow Public Market. Please click here to request an appointment.
Greg's interest in wine began while living in France when he was 20. He was fascinated by the wineries and vineyards that he would ride his bike through. He visited the famous Taittinger champagne house to see méthode Champenoise for himself, and it all took off from there.
His interest in wine followed him home to America where he honed his palate while embarking on a career in structural engineering.
Greg studied winemaking at UC Davis in the mid-2000s and then worked for several wineries where he made wine for two labels and himself and was a viticulturist which introduced him to growers and vineyards across the Napa Valley.
These relationships have proved to be pivotal in Greg's quest to produce outstanding wines from the best vineyards for Majuscule.
