Looking back, looking forward and enjoying the new...

Mother Nature leads the way as Napa Valley is bursting with brilliant yellow mustard, followed by pink fruit trees and the promise of bud break.

We hope you enjoy the release of our "Staying in Touch" Newsletter Magazine….follow the development of our downtown Napa Store. and share our excitement of the release of a NEW OFFERING from GABRIELLE LIMITED: ELLE!

As the new year is gaining momentum, it’s the perfect time to review your O'Connell Family wine collection. Select wines to drink, age and order favorites. Check current selection in our online store.


"For years, I wanted to make a classic Bordeaux style (Meritage) Red Wine. The 2012 vintage offered the perfect opportunity to launch ELLE. The wine is a blend of the five Bordeaux varietals, which are the royalty (in my humble opinion) or red wine: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec.

When our consulting winemaker, Mitch Cosentino and I selected the barrels to create the blend, it fell into place like magic! We looked at each other and said, "DO NOT CHANGE A THING!"

It was the perfect moment to create this luscious wine. I am very proud to introduce a new addition to the Gabrielle Limited Collection."

- Gabrielle Leonhard O’Connell, Director of Winemaking

As always, first shipments go to our Decanter Society members. Often, we run out at that point, which is very likely with ELLE as we only made 155 cases. Click on this link to JOIN TODAY!
