 Bob Foley

Robert (Bob) Foley began his wine making career in the Napa Valley in 1977, working at a number of highly regarded wineries including the famous Pride Mountain Vineyards, where he spent 15 years as founding winemaker. During this period he also created the highly acclaimed Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, School House, and Engel Family wines. He now focuses on Robert Foley Vineyards and Switchback Ridge wines, but also creates some of the offerings from Dos Lagos Vineyards, Engel Family, and Padis Vineyards in the Napa Valley.

 In 1998 Robert Foley Vineyards bottled its flagship Claret (a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend), and has since expanded and diversified its production to offer more of the big reds Bob is famous for – Petite Sirah, Merlot, Charbono, the limited-release Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, a Carneros Pinot Noir, a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and The Griffin (a blend of the best in the red cellar). Always seeking to create new, fun, and interesting wines, Bob has also bottled three of his favorites: Pinot Blanc, a Rhone-style White Wine, and a Syrah called Kelly's Cuvee.
