The word Proposal can have many meanings.  It may be a plan, an idea presented in business,  an offer of marriage, or it may be a simple suggestion among friends and family. Whatever the definition, a Proposal brings people together.

Our Story:

Proposal Wine began in 2013 with the mission of bringing the best fruit from our family vineyard directly to your doorstep. No middle man, no fuss, all fun. It was a modest goal, and today we are thrilled to have expanded on that mission.

Our offering not only consists of wine from our family vineyard, but also intentionally selected varietals from other regions in the area. From Mendocino, to Sonoma, to our family vineyards in Napa, we are intently focused on creating the best wine experience for you, our wonderful customers.

Thanks for welcoming us into your kitchen, dining room, backyard parties, and elegant celebrations.

We hope Proposal Wine has helped you enjoy the best moments in life.

John, BJ and Bryan

Family Vineyard: Our family vineyards are located in Rutherford, St. Helena and Spring Mountain. We are excited to bring you the very best each has to offer.

 Label Design: A family member offered a Proposal of marriage in the center of the family gazebo featured on our label. We decided to commemorate such a special moment by making it our brand's distinctive mark along with our brand's distinctive name.
