Envy Wines

Our wines are all handcrafted in small productions on the outskirts of Calistoga. We started out in 2007 with a delicious Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and three luscious, layered reds, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, and Bee Bee's Blend, and have grown our programs steadily. We are now pleased to announce that we have added two additional Petite Sirahs to our family, the Nord Vineyard and the Vaca Mountian, as well as a Rose, Estate Port and Late Harvest dessert wine.

Envy Wines is also the home of Vine Haven which is Nils’ own label, as well as vineyard-designated Carter Cellars wines. Carter Cellars was the first collaboration that started in 1998 between Carter and Venge. Nils has had a fabulous career in the wine industry, creating classic, award-winning wines for three decades. In fact Robert Parker, Jr. gave Nil's Groth Vineyards and Winery 1985 Reserve Cabernet a perfect score of '100' establishing Nils as a fantastic and talented winemaker early in his career. He continues the tradition for Carter Cellars, as Wine Spectator Magazine has recently recognized this wine as one of the top 10 best up and coming Cabernets in California and top wines to buy as well.
