Our Story

The story of Rocca Family Vineyards starts with the land. In 1999, in the heart of the Napa Valley, Mary Rocca and her husband Dr. Eric Grigsby fell in love with a 21-acre vineyard in Yountville, and bought it with a handshake and a promise to revitalize it.

The vineyard was soon converted to a sustainable, organically farmed operation, now planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The Grigsby Vineyard quickly became a high-quality grape supplier to various Napa Valley wineries while the family embarked on creating the first Rocca wine, harvesting the first vintage in 2000.

That same year, Mary and Eric acquired a beautiful, 11-acre hilltop property in the Coombsville Appellation, planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc vines, and christened it Collinetta, meaning “little hilltop”.

Now, over two decades later, the care and attention we take in our vineyards directly translates to our high-quality, expressive wines, year after year, and we are proud to share them with you. Focusing on our single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons, our wines are now only available directly from the winery, and made in small quantities, and are allocated to our members. We invite you to visit us, taste our wines, and get to know a very special part of Napa Valley.
