Discover Coombsville, AVA

Discover Coombsville, AVA

A once sleepy, understated grape growing region of the Napa Valley has long been the secret ingredient for many award-winning and 90-plus point wines. Acclaimed vintners like Robert Mondavi, Joseph Phelps, Louie Martini, Dario Sattui and Paul Hobbs, to name a few, sourced their grapes from the rocky soils that abut the shadows of Mt. George in the Valley’s southeast side.

Napa Valley’s Best Equestrian Winery Experiences

Shadybrook Estate at Rapp Ranch

Just a few miles away from the bustle of downtown Napa, nestled in the foothills of the Vacas Range, Napa Valley opens its kimono to the quiet grace of Coombsville. With sprawling acreage home to vineyards, farms, ranches and a peppering of multi generation residential communities, Coombsville is one of Napa Valley’s hidden treasures. Having received its AVA designation in 2011, it is becoming one of Napa’s most sought after regions for wineries to establish a footing both as a premier location to produce grapes and to open space to welcome visitors.

Shadybrook Wins the Trifecta!

2013 Shadybrook Estate Malbec - Double Gold Medal  
2013 Shadybrook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon - Gold Medal
2014 Shadybrook Estate Platiné Blanc - Silver Medal



Earlier this year, we submitted our wines into the infamous San Francisco International Wine Competition.  Established in 1980, this long-standing competition sets the standard for professional wine judging across the globe on domestic and international wines.  This competition is the largest international wine competition in the United States.

Out of the 4,600 wines submitted, our 2013 Malbec was awarded the Double Gold Medal! Our Malbec was not the only winner, the 2013 Cabernet received the Gold Medal and our 2014 Platine Blanc received the Silver Medal.  We are elated and honored to be awarded this trifecta of medals and to be recognized as one of the world’s esteemed wine producers.

The SFIWC is considered to be one of the most influential wine competitions in the world and of all competitions, this is the one to win! A SFIWC medal has been established as a reliable indication of wine excellence and wines recognized as medal-worthy by our judges are universally understood to be among the very best. Competition judges are established wine-industry experts.  Medal winners are chosen through a rigorous judging process – a highly controlled operation held over four days of blind tastings. 

Congratulations to Rudy Zuidema, our esteemed winemaker, and the Shadybrook team for the well-deserved win on all three Shadybrook Estate Wines at the 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition!
