With passion and a commitment to hard work Linda and Gerhard Reisacher launched Delectus Winery in 1995. Delectus is a small family-owned winery that handcrafts luxury red wines from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley and Knights Valley. We produce 4500 cases annually of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and Syrah, most of which is sold directly through the winery. Delectus wines have received high scores and praise from wine critics and consumers alike. The consistency and quality of the wines is attributed to Gerhard and his legacy as an eighth generation winemaker. All Delectus wines are crafted unfined & unfiltered and are completely unadulterated (no spinning cone, reverse osmosis, mega purple, concentrate, or other magic tricks). We pride ourselves in producing expressive red wines that are big and bold without compromising the art of winemaking.
Delectus not only delivers exceptional wines but unique experiences as well. We welcome guests to the St. Helena Tasting Room daily without appointments from 10-5pm. We do recommend calling ahead with groups of 6 or more. Appointments are necessary for our Winemaker Experience Tasting.
