In a September 3rd, 1999, article of The Wall Street Journal, Sullivan Vineyards was named one of the top five wineries to visit in the Napa Valley.
"Creativity and perfection in all realms of living is what the Sullivans strive for. We don't stop when we put the brush down, cut continue throughout our lives - in winemaking, cooking and friendships."
