Whetstone Wine Cellars



a few words from Michelle Whetstone


I am so grateful for and proud of what we have going on a daily basis at Whetstone. You've likely had the opportunity to meet at least one of the wonderful women who work with us and take care of you whether in the tasting salon, from your inbox, or on the phone. 

It’s been said ‘it takes a village,’ but I disagree. It takes a few thoughtful, creative, and smart people who are passionate about their work and life and proud to be a part of something great. Our staff not only honors what Jamey and I have created, they make it better. Each brings her own talents and strengths to make Whetstone who we are.

Proudest/funniest moment at Whetstone: One of the funniest (and most fun) moments so far was the Harvest Party.  Jenna and I made a valiant attempt to switch out the 5-gallon water jug on the water station. We didn't think our plan through very well and the table fell over, water jugs broke and I ended up soaking wet! Luckily it was warm summer night in Napa!
