California Brandy House, a stand-alone tasting room dedicated solely to “luxury California brandies,” will soon be unveiled at First Street Napa.

Set to open for outdoor tastings only on Nov. 6, California Brandy House will initially showcase two leading brandy portfolios, Germain-Robin and Argonaut, according to a recent news release.

“Guests will discover California brandy through expert guided tasting flights, including limited offerings and single-barrel samples not available anywhere else,” said the release.

Tastings will initially take place in the California Brandy House outdoor parklet. To ensure proper social distancing, reservations must be made in advance.

“Our California brandies, like Germain-Robin and Argonaut, are crafted from world-class white and red grape varieties exclusively grown on California soil,” said Britt West, vice president and general manager of Gallo Spirits, a division of E. & J. Gallo Winery.

“These fine brandies are as rich, vibrant and complex as the land itself. There is no better place than Napa Valley, the heart of wine country, to re-establish California brandy among the world’s best distilled spirits.”

“Since its inception, First Street Napa has been committed to cultivating distinctive destinations to shop and explore, and California Brandy House is a wonderful example of a completely new concept,” said Todd Zapolski, managing partner, First Street Napa.

“With its stylish aesthetic and unique tasting options, it’s going to be a real draw. We are thrilled to welcome them to our community.”

California Brandy House is located at 1300 First St., Suite 309, next to Eiko’s and Makers Market.
