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.
The juxtaposition of big and small embodies our wine making philosophy. We craft big yet elegant and balanced wines from exceptional single vineyards in the Napa Valley.
We are a small, family owned and run winery that specializes in Cab Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. 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 Mount Veeder, we made two barrels of the first Majuscule wines in 2009 as a side project from the same vineyard we source grapes from today. It was a fun endeavor, and we enjoyed sharing the wines with friends. And 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, situated 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 from a few select wine shops in California and Arizona. Our proprietors host private tastings and events in Napa. Please visit our Taste page for information and reservations.
We specialize in Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, producing under 500 cases per year.
