Articulating a sense of place in every bottle, The Seventy Five Wine Company revels in expressing California wine country’s sun, earth and abundance. The wines reveal a history of care and craftsmanship that begins in the vineyard.
Having grown up and honed my skills around some of the most talented vineyard managers and winemakers in the world, The Seventy Five Wine Company draws on a great foundation of inspiration, and was created as a conscious reflection of my personal belief in and commitment to the production of high quality, reasonably priced wines from the Napa Valley -- my home since 1975.
We offer an honest, historic connection to the vineyards of northern California, and deep roots in the wine world. I know from hands on experience that it is possible to produce great wines, vintage over vintage, without breaking the bank. The Seventy Five Wine Company is dedicated to pioneering change by producing premium wines of great distinction at reasonable prices. And I personally promise to over-deliver on every one of your expectations: wine quality, pedigree and price.
Many found inspiration in 1975: Bill Gates founded Microsoft, Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace, the first episode of Saturday Night Live debuted, and The Beckstoffer family set up shop in Napa Valley.
The Seventy-Five Wine Company was founded to perpetuate and honor the inspiration of that landmark year.
Tuck Beckstoffer creates world-class wines. As the President of Tuck Beckstoffer Wines he produces a dozen of Napa Valley’s most exciting and sought-after wines. Working with a spectrum of varietals, Tuck gives the consumer unparalleled quality in a range of prices.
Pioneers of the Napa Valley grape growing industry, the Beckstoffer family made the vineyards both their lives and their livelihood. When not playing in the vineyards, Tuck was learning about them. 1975 marked his first harvest, and since then Tuck can’t remember a harvest when he hasn’t tasted, smelled and picked the fruit straight from the vine.
Extensive viticultural knowledge drove a desire to learn more about the winemaking process. Studies with winemaking legends in wineries both at home and abroad only whetted Tuck’s appetite to create a wine of his own. After making Tuck Beckstoffer Cabernet Sauvignon in 1997 to critical acclaim, collectors and connoisseurs asked for more. That demand continues today. His Semper Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays are among the highest rated and most critically acclaimed Sonoma Coast wines produced today. Melee Grenache was hailed an “elegant expression of the land and a joy in the glass.” His Mockingbird and Tuck Beckstoffer Cabernets have been praised as “wines of remarkable character. A treasure to drink and to collect.” His Seventy Five Wine Company has been championed as “pedigreed wine for people without pedigree.”
Tuck has lived in the Napa Valley since 1975. After a lifetime among the vines, he continues to thrive on making wines that are an expression of the place he calls home.
