Most wine enthusiasts are familiar with the name, Cakebread Cellars, an award-winning Napa Valley winery. With a long history in the area, the Cakebread family settled in the Napa Valley area well before it was known as the prestigious winegrowing region it is today. Established in 1973 by Jack and Delores Cakebread, it was the 39th officially bonded winery in the area. Today, the winery is still family run, with sons Bruce Cakebread (president and COO) and Dennis Cakebread (senior vice president of sales and marketing) intimately involved in running the organization. Over the years, Cakebread has grown tremendously and has developed land in select California winegrowing regions. The family now has prime vineyards in 13 different sites (all but one is in Napa Valley). These include vineyards on Napa Valley’s Howell Mountain; Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley; Napa’s Carneros region; as well as in Suscol Springs (southeastern Napa Valley).
