Thank you very much for your interest in tasting the wines of Modus Operandi Cellars.
We absolutely love making new friends and sharing the story of how our winemaker, as a 24 year old waiter in Dallas, followed his passion and dream of making wine in Napa.
We look forward to meeting you!
Modus Operandi Cellars produces just a small hand full of wines… considered the boutique of boutique…
And for that reason, tastings are only granted to mailing list subscribers, however requesting a tasting will add you to our mailing list.
Tastings are by appointment only and it is a good idea to request your tasting a bit in advance so that we can make time for you.
A small clip from a recent tasting…

Our classic experience…
Super laid back and unpretentious… relax in a beautiful and private environment learning the history of the brand, hear stories of wine country, peer behind the curtain of the wine industry… and of course enjoying 4 to 5 current vintage Modus wines.
Our Director of Sales, Mario Moreno will take wonderful care of you.
$60 per person (credit card required as place holder, nothing billed at the time of scheduling)
*Fee is waived with 6 bottle per person purchase or 1 wine club membership per couple.
Want to hang with and create a personal relationship directly with the Winemaker?
Enjoy all of the above from the Classic Tasting, only hearing it directly from our Winemaker and owner, Jason Moore.
Jason is a skilled storyteller and has a knack for exuding an air of warmth and comfort that is rare in the more often introverted winemaking community.
His story is truly an “American Dream” come true, kind of story.
$125 per person (4 person min)*
*Fee is waived with 12 bottle per person purchase or 1 case club membership per couple.
**Tasting fee is pre-paid to secure reservation
We are very fortunate to make our wine at a host facility which has an amazing restaurant on property… Brasswood Bar + Kitchen.
This farm-to-table, four-course wine and food pairing is seasonally designed to feature ingredients from local ranches and gardens. The culinary team beautifully pairs each course with a combination of our Flagship Blended and Limited Production wines. Weather permitting, guests are welcome to enjoy our outdoor lanai tables.
$125 per person (paid in advance)
*Due to the restaurant being involved, tasting fee is not waived.
We offer 3 tasting experience options:
We do not accept same day requests
