Elkhorn Peak Cellars

Elise Nerlove

  • P.O. Box 821
Pinot Noir

Situated on 17 acres of non-certified organically farmed vineyards, Elkhorn Peak Cellars is  actively working towards operating as a fully regenerative farm.  Since 1983, the  microwinery has been quietly producing world-class Pinot Noir and more. Second-generation farmer and winemaker Elise Nerlove studied at Napa Valley College Viticulture and Enology Program, then interned at Failla Wines before returning to the family farm to help her father Ken operate Elkhorn Peak. When helping to run the family business, Elise is championing for the rights of Napa’s smallest producers by working as the Vice President of Marketing and Operations for the non-profit Save the Family Farms, which she co-founded in 2017.  Offering just 800 cases of low-intervention wines per year, you won’t find these wines in restaurants or wine shops; they are exclusively sold through the winery.
