Sean and Juliana McBride made their first vintage under the Crosby Roamann label, just one barrel of premium Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, in 2007—but for both members of the husband-and-wife team, their passion for wine, and ultimately winemaking, began as a one of the quotidian elements shared at the family table.

Sean and Juliana met in New York City a few years into their post-college careers in film production and publishing, fell in love, married and had two beautiful twin daughters. Napa proved to have a stronger calling than they could ever imagine. They took a leap of faith, left the East Coast, and Crosby Roamann became a reality when they purchased an airy, industrial warehouse in Napa’s Crusher District. The lofty space now holds their winery production for both Crosby Roamann and Sean W. McBride wines—Sean’s eponymous line of single-vineyard Pinot Noirs—and their modern tasting room.

Crosby Roamann wines start in the vineyard, and our minimal intervention philosophy continues throughout our winemaking practices, from sourcing from small, family vineyards following organic, biodynamic or sustainable farming practices—and in the cellar where we encourage fermentation with native yeasts, and exercise natural winemaking techniques like forgoing filtration or fining.

Making distinctive wines with character and a sense of place is the bedrock of the Crosby Roamann ethos. We look forward to sharing our wines—and, our story with you—at our table or yours.
