This is a "ghost winery," a term given to wineries started in the mid-to-late 19th century, a time when the California wine industry was booming. Most were abandoned early in the 20th century, victims of phylloxera, Prohibition and the Great Depression, and thus became "ghosts."

A few have been rescued and renovated. Regusci, whose tasting room is in a building constructed in 1878 by California wine pioneer Terrill Grigsby, is an example of a fantastically preserved ghost winery.

Wineries in the Napa Valley number in the hundreds, and it’s a rare facility open to the public that turns away imbibers with leashes in hand. While some facilities relegate four-legged guests to their picnic grounds, others invite furry friends to belly up to the bar with their people (yes, Lucy, that’s a jar of treats on the counter…). Here are some weatherproof suggestions for winter wine tasting with a dog at your side. more »

Visit Napa Valley midweek or in fall/winter, and you’ll have an experience much different than on high-season weekends. And there’s no shortage of wineries that welcome four-legged visitors. With Halloween coming up, why not theme a day to the valley’s “ghost wineries,” a term given to a handful of resurrected facilities built between 1860 and 1900, before disease, Prohibition and the Great Depression decimated the valley’s early wine-grape industry?

Delightfully secluded at the end of a long, winding drive off the Silverado Trail, Regusci charms with a wine cellar made of buttery stone and dating to 1878. The dog-friendly tasting room next door is elegantly modern. You and Fido are welcome to belly up to the bar or picnic on the shaded grounds. more »

Tis the season for all things haunted, so why not evoke some ghostly spirits with your Cabernet?

The buttery-stone facade of the cellar dates to 1878, but the dog-friendly tasting room is elegantly modern. more »
