History of Clos du Bois


After traveling France’s wine regions, founder Frank Woods returned home inspired to marry the elegant French style of winemaking with his vibrant California fruit. Decades later, we continue to embrace his winemaking philosophy, earning a devoted following among those who love refined, approachable wines.
