Waugh Family Wines is a boutique winery in Napa Valley, and we are passionate about creating unique wines that surprise and delight. Ryan Waugh first fell in love with wine after tasting a 1976 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon in college. Inspired, he jumped into winemaking and soon became the cellar master at Napa winery Chateau Potelle.(Read the full story below!)
After creating Waugh Family Wines in 2000, Ryan has been one of the “visionary” first-generation winemakers in Napa Valley (Napa Valley Wine Project). He and his wife Crystal also founded The Caves at Soda Canyon, a unique underground winery where they and three other families follow their passion for making great wine.
Every glass of our wine reflects the terroir of Napa Valley and Sonoma, plus individuality and dedication of our quality-obsessed approach.
“Ryan is one of the new generation of Napa winemakers … with initiative, vision, international wine experience, and a passion for working with vineyards.”

“Waugh Cellars is a winery truly going places … Ryan knows the unique benefits of terroir and as a result, sources fruit from a variety of locations within California based on where specific varietals grow best.”
