Michael Mondavi and Robert Mondavi Jr. are the main players behind FolioWinemakers producing brands such as M, I'M, Hangtime, Emblem, and Spellbound among others.

Cakebread Cellars (CakebreadWines)
Cakebread Cellars (CakebreadWines) on Twitter
Who doesn't love Cakebread's wines? Napa Valley is known for some great Cabernet Sauvignon's but Cakebread nails it with their 2006 Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet. All of the other wines are also great from top to bottom - can't go wrong.
now following
Alpha Omega Winery (AOwinery)
Alpha Omega Winery (AOwinery) on Twitter
Alpha Omega Winery may be on the newer side but this boutique winery is already putting out some serious wine. Their merlot heavy Bordeaux style blend "Era" is top-notch and their Proprietary Red, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauv Blanc and even the Rose are all great.
now following
Domaine Chandon (ClubChandon)
Domaine Chandon (ClubChandon) on Twitter
Chandon is well known for their sparkling wines but after a recent visit I also fell in love with their Chardonnay and Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Their DKNY Cuvee for Donna Karen's 20th anniversary is also unique and fantastic (in limited supply) as it was made
now following
Rombauer Vineyards (rombauervino)
Rombauer Vineyards (rombauervino) on Twitter
Rombauer is well known for their oakey / buttery Chardonnay but their Zinfandel, Merlot and Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon are also all very good. You can't go wrong unless you aren't into the oakey chards.
now following
St. Supery Winery (stsupery)
St. Supery Winery (stsupery) on Twitter
One of the better Sauvignon Blancs in the Napa Valley... gotta give it a try. These guys are also way ahead of the curve on utilizing social media (although props are due for anyone making a "Twitter" list in the wine industry).
now following
PlumpJack Group (PlumpJack)
PlumpJack Group (PlumpJack) on Twitter
Amazing 2007 PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain AVA in Napa Valley... they also produce a stainless steel fermented Chardonnay that is quite good but we were all about the new cabernet release. At $78 it rivals other $100-200 offerings in the valley and scored 95 points from Robert Parker.
now following
Castello di Amorosa (TheCastello)
Castello di Amorosa (TheCastello) on Twitter
Castello di Amorosa produces primarily Italian style wines while reflecting California's unique climate, soil and growing conditions. They wines are all fantastic but it's the 13th century, 107 room, Tuscan style Castle and Winery that blew us away upon visiting.
Nickel & Nickel Info (NickelandNickel) on Twitter
Great single vineyard wines out of Napa Valley... hoping they'll pick up the social media efforts here :)
now following
Cuvaison Estate Wine (cuvaison)
Cuvaison Estate Wine (cuvaison) on Twitter
Cuvaison is one i was not very familiar with but a couple of their wines stood out. Most notable were the single block Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Be sure to check out their cave when visiting :)

Nice list. I would add Chateau Montelena (http://twitter.com/ChMontelena). If you are unfamiliar with this winery, be sure to watch the movie "Bottle Shock." Great movie and fabulous wine.
February 17, 2010
Great suggestion! We were sad we didn't have time to stop by Chateau Montelena on our recent trip, will have to make it by next time :)

Phenomenal list, Mike. I love how these wineries all tweet now! I've been to half of these before, so it looks like I've got more to check out, as well as follow on twitter. One recommendation that I have, if you haven't gone to it yet, is Del Dotto's. It's super gorgeous and they offer a neat cave tour. Oh, and Merryvale's is nice, too. Thanks for sharing this! :)
February 15, 2010
We did do Del "Blotto" and it was amazing. One of my top recommendations for both wine + education on the effect of barrels/toasting on flavor. Didn't find them on Twitter though :)
February 16, 2010
Nice! We'll have to tell them to get on it then ;)
February 13, 2010
Great Twitter list! You've got me pining for a trip to Napa Valley and you've listed two of my absolute favorite wineries: St. Supery (amazing Sauvignon Blanc!) and Cakebread. Thanks for sharing this!
February 14, 2010
Thanks Bethany! I already can't wait to go back, I think I have a couple more trips in me for the year + I need to get up to Sonoma. Wish there was more time :)
