  • What we love

    It can be quite exciting to find a special wine that’s both memorable and inexpensive. These are the wines that you want to share with your friends. It smells like violets, Craisins and fresh earth, with a lightly dusty texture. It’s fruity and a little bit rustic — the sort of house red you want on hand all the time. Best enjoyed after a long day of work or with weekend BBQs. Enjoy!

Dan O'Brien

Founder + Winemaker


Dan O’Brien is the founder and winemaker behind Gail, a wine label exploring the vineyards & varietals of Sonoma Valley.

The first thing to know about Gail Wines is that they represent the best of California's emerging garagiste producers. It isn't often that you can catch a producer before the word is out, but Gail represents one of these rare opportunities. Gail is on the cusp on blowing up, big.

Dan O'Brien has worked throughout the wine industry, first starting in high-end restaurants in the east coast, eventually moving to San Francisco to start the Grand Award winning wine program at Cavallo Point. From there he started the Cultivar wine label, was the estate director for Long Meadow Ranch & Larkmead Vineyards, started the Hunt & Harvest wine label, and now is dedicating all of his time and efforts into Gail.
