Miraculously crafted single vineyard wines

A generational family winery tucked away in the heart of Napa Valley wineries in Rutherford, Tayson Pierce Estate Wines is the collection of critically acclaimed Single Vineyard wines crafted by winemaker Jeff Ames.  Our family’s mission is to craft the finest wines possible worthy of sharing with your friends and loved ones using only hand selected grapes from Napa Valley’s most iconic single vineyards in our meticulously selected plots. 

We believe the truest expression of wine’s artistic qualities is to focus on a particular varietal sourced from a single vineyard and create the finest wine that grape can produce.  We treat every step in the process with equal importance prepared to the very best of our ability to extract the highest value possible in each bottle.  We strive to make our wines as affordable as they are luxurious in prestige and taste so that you can enjoy them year-round.

Our People

A father son duo, Eric and Taylor Rothchild formed Tayson Pierce Estate Wines based on generations of family winemaking.  The name Tayson Pierce stems from Eric’s three sons: the eldest Taylor, the youngest Grayson, and the middle Pierce.  The name is a hybridization of Taylor and Grayson (Tay-Son) and Pierce.

“We have to give the middle brother the larger name on the bottle”

~ Taylor Rothchild (while developing the name)

The Terroir

Where the wine is truly made

Over the years, we’ve produced our vintages from Napa Valley’s most iconic vineyards including Beckstoffer Vineyards, Young Inglewood, Alder Springs, and Stagecoach Vineyards.  Their unique soil conditions, unapparelled microclimates, and proven grape quality make it easier for our winemaker to produce truly great wines allowing the grapes to shine through in the glass.  

Rarity in its Best form
