Our Story

Founded in 2011 Picayune Cellars is a négociant style winery dedicated to making wines of outstanding quality that are also exceptional values. Building on her relationships with some of wine country’s most respected winemakers and growers, Claire assembles wines from Napa Valley and the Sonoma Coast for Picayune. The key on the label represents the idea of “Unlocking Secret Wines from California.”


Discover amazing small lots of wines. My process: I sit down, taste and blend until I think this is the wine I want to share with my friends and family. The wines are finished, filtered and bottled in Napa.Picayune is a labor of love; it is a small project focusing on delivering high quality wines at a competitive price.
