Wines Burgess Cellars makes "chef-friendly" wines with balance in the European or Old-World style The winemakers started setting aside "library" wines in 1980 for release at least 10 years later. They grow eight varietals at their vineyards, including their flagship Cabernet Sauvignon at the Ranch vineyard, Merlot at the Triere vineyard, and Syrah at their vineyard off Ink Grade Road. History Tom Burgess was an Air Force pilot and a jet pilot for IBM who got interested in wine when he was flying around Europe, and interested in the Napa and Sonoma valleys while traveling around Travis Air Force Base. In 1972 he bought the original Souverain vineyard from Pillsbury, when they were moving production to Rutherford, and its 1888 winery. Winemaker Bill Sorenson has been with the winery since its founding. Burgess Cellars formerly produced Zinfandels and Chardonnays as well. They also formerly sourced grapes from other vineyards.
