Big, small. Bold, timid. Majuscule is the counterpart to minuscule. In Latin it means "somewhat greater" and in French the literal defintion is a capital letter.
This juxtaposition of big and small embodies our winemaking style. We craft big yet elegant wines from exceptional single vineyards in the Napa Valley. Our beautiful wines are fruit driven with balanced and restrained tannins.
We're indeed a small, family-owned winery of just two people. The founders – Jeff Davis and Greg Brickey – united as an unlikely pair of talented winemakers to create a boutique winery known for elegant Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Our award-winning wines are produced in very small lots - typically less than 100 cases per wine - with an intense focus on quality.
Working with our friend Lisa Chu, a longtime grower on Mt Veeder, we made two barrels of the first two Majuscule wines in 2009 as a side project from the same vineyard we source grapes from today. We enjoyed sharing the wines with friends, and at the time, we thought it was just a fun endeavor. But the seed was planted for what was to come a few years later.
In 2018 Majuscule became an official winery. We're still rooted to Lisa's Wildcat Vineyard located on steep slopes 1,800 feet above the western side of the Napa Valley. The vineyard is stunning and has several microclimates and grape clones. It's challenging to farm, but the extra effort yields incredible results in the bottle.
Our wines are available via our website and we can ship to most states. Jeff and Greg personally host private tastings and events in Napa, Arizona and around the country. Visit our Events & Tastings page for our current schedule and to make reservations. And please join our email list to get updates about new wines, events and promotions.
We specialize in Cab Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, producing well under 900 cases per year.
