When we opened Tank Garage Winery in 2014, we didn’t know if it would work. In fact, for a while, it seemed like it wouldn’t. Napa Valley just didn’t seem ready for an old garage pumping out eclectic wine blends and vintage vibes. The people that drove by looked confused and if they ever stopped, it was to try and get gas. Nobody seemed to get it.
But then, we found you.
And you told your friends about this weird little winery in Calistoga with cool labels and an affinity for the F word and they started coming too. Before we could even realize, Tank became a full-fledged movement. Fuck, are we forever grateful.
See, this project didn’t start in some focus group or corporate boardroom, it started as a dream between two friends. Together, Jim Regusci and James Harder built Tank as a bastion for dreamers and those looking to defy conventions. A winery that celebrates misfits, bootleggers, and daredevils. No business plan, no exit strategy, just a mission to do cool shit.
So if you are reading this, thank you for sharing our dream. We’ll keep pushing boundaries in winemaking. We’ll keep doing cool shit. And we promise to keep rockin’ and rollin’.
