One of the biggest names in Napa Valley, California's wine region. Known for its quality wines, Realm Cellars emerges in the eyes of visitors as a state-of-the-art wine cellar with high-end technology, elegant wine tasting glasses and an image tailored for success.
What people don’t see, and what its co-founders Juan Mercado and Scott Becker, and oenologist Benoit Touequette, long-time friends, don’t hide is the blood, sweat and tears that went into their heritage: a fire that burnt the entire vineyard, the debts, the twists and turns, the risks, the investment and the fresh start.
Today, the vineyard, the cellar and the warehouse mirror the resilience and passion for the land. This is what they cheer to with each new harvest.
