For nearly two decades as winemaker of Four Winds Cellars (formerly Laraine Winery), John Gibson has created some of the most exciting and innovative wines this region has seen. A veteran winemaker with over three decades experience in the Napa Valley, including twelve years at the renowned Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, John has combined his skillful use of Calaveras fruit with his own Napa style to produce wines which have earned widespread acclaim throughout the industry.
Visit us at our new tasting room location on Main Street Murphys, the first tasting room you hit as you come into town. Inspired by our love of the vineyard and the winemaking process, our tasting room focuses on the journey from grape to bottle, including an exceptionally unique tasting bar made from wine barrel staves.
We offer our entire flight of Four Winds wines, as well as showcasing a wide selection of one-of-a-kind gift items, gourmet food products and wine related merchandise.
Our end goal is for you to have a brilliant time. To enjoy each wine as much as we do, to have a chat and a laugh with our staff, and to meet new friends along the way. Come and visit us and enjoy hospitality Four Winds style.
