Fountainhead Cellars is the result of the Fisher and Sharp Family’s efforts. Jason Fisher is the winemaker and his wife Michelle is the director of hospitality. Sam Sharp is the head of sales and his wife Traci is in charge of marketing and public relations.
Jason Fisher has an impressive track record in the Napa Valley wine industry. Before starting Fountainhead, he worked for several well known wineries including Grace Family Vineyards, Cosentino, and Paradigm. He focuses on producing single vineyard wines with grapes sourced from premium Napa growers.
Fountainhead’s inaugural vintage was the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon from Marisoli Borges Vineyard. The grapes that were used to make this wine were grown in the Rutherford AVA on the west side of Highway 29. Aged for 29 months in 50% new French oak, only 215 cases of this wine was produced.
