Stressed Vines Cellars is a heartfelt homage to founder Rob Barney's passion for wines that tell a story of resilience and character, emerging from vines that have weathered more challenges than your average vineyard.

We are devoted to old vines, dry-farmed vines, and high elevation vineyards, each contributing unique qualities to our meticulously crafted collection of wines including Chardonnay, Rosé, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

We have cultivated partnerships with local winegrowers throughout Napa and Sonoma Counties, sourcing fruit from distinctively stressed vineyards that Rob loves. As a boutique producer crafting only a limited number of cases per year, our focus is on quality.

Winemaker Erica Stancliff, an enology graduate from Fresno State University, honed her skills under the mentorship of veteran winemaker Paul Hobbs. Erica's approach involves minimal intervention, allowing the inherent beauty of the fruit to shine and coaxing the voice of each vineyard into every bottle.
