Cobb Wines at Cadet Napa


Cobb Wines have been killin’ the costal Pinot game since 1989, when Ross Cobb planted his original estate vineyard on Coastlands. Originally hailing from Marin County, David Cobb spent his career as a marine biologist while Diane Cobb worked in advertising and print marketing. As they closed in on the notion of retirement, they shared a very specific vision; to own and live on property close to both the redwoods and the Pacific Ocean.

Their search for land near the coast began in the mid ‘80s ranging from the Santa Cruz mountains up to the Oregon border. During a series of day trips they scoured the coastline with soil maps in hand. Throughout their journey they found themselves exploring the western edges of Sonoma County, on the hilltops just past the town of Occidental. Having spent much of the ‘60s working at the Bodega Bay Marine Lab, David was familiar with the region. He was on the hunt for good soils that could be a home for great Pinot Noir. When discovering a stunning piece of land that boasted views from Mount Tamalpais to the Russian River mouth at Jenner, they know they found their home.
