We are BEYOND excited to welcome REALM CELLARS to Tesse & Boutellier! Owner Juan Mercado and Winemaker Benoit Toquette have something very special going on in Napa. These wines are insane! So insane that they are near impossible to get, let alone taste in a wine dinner! We are so excited that they have agreed to do a wine dinner with us. Seats for this dinner will be very limited, so book fast if you would like to attend!

Making wine at the very highest level has always been at the core of Realm Cellars. Through “these blessed plots” – vineyards that we own and sites that we carefully curate – our aim is nothing less than to illuminate and reflect the pinnacle of Napa Valley winegrowing. But our vision for what Realm can be encompasses more than creating fine wine. Securing an enduring place in the history of Napa Valley, that is also our aspiration.
Realm Cellars is a journey. Years ago, Juan laid the groundwork, risking everything he had to achieve his dream. In time, others took the baton, taking their own risks to rebuild the business when it needed it most and infusing Realm with a new vision of what the future could hold. Drawing on a shared ethos of entrepreneurship and an obsession with excellence, this team took Realm beyond an individual person, and way beyond Juan’s wildest dreams.
As we look to the future, we see only possibility. Our Estate in the Stags Leap District gives us a firm foundation and ensures that Realm Cellars will be here for decades to come. We’ve come a long way, yet there is still much work ahead: a property to revitalize, vineyards to re-plant, a concept for hospitality to be realized, and of course, wines to be made. As we map our course, our promise - to our customers, our growers, ourselves - is that Realm Cellars will never be static, never complacent. We will make our mark in the firm belief that the best is always yet to come.
