DESTINY CABERNET

OUR DESTINY'S STORY......

 

My story started back in 1993 with my first taste of Caymus wine, it was poured at the Harvest Inn in St Helena. Caymus Cabernet is the wine that got me hooked. 

My career path was already well established, following in my dad's footsteps into the Fire Department. I did visit the Napa Valley frequently on my off days. I knew someday a possible second career could happen in the wine industry.

 

Eleven years later in the spring of 2004, I met Deborah, a Napa Valley native from early childhood. Go figure, the new dating site Eharmony.com would take my interests and hers to match us up. That is where our Destiny together begins. Two years later we were married and started our life adventure together.

While exploring the Napa Valley, we came across a nice property for sale. Two weeks later, we purchased the property. It is one acre in size and located at the foothills of Mount George, in the Coombsville AVA. And so, our Destiny continues, with the small gentleman’s vineyard that produces one ton of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. As fate or destiny would have it, Napa Valley's Caymus Winery farmed  the grapes from our property to use in their Cabernet!  I have traveled a full circle knowing I’m headed in the right direction in my life.

Knowing retirement from the Fire Department was about five years away, we decided to start a wine tour business that has truly flourished Destiny Wine Tours has had many great experiences meeting new clients that have become good friends.

With help of others in 2010, I took over farming our grapes. We are now producing our own Destiny Wine, Napa Valley Coombsville Estate Cabernet that is enjoyed by family, friends and clients! I retired from the Fire Department in 2013, after twenty-nine years of driving a firetruck I decided to take a giant leap into my new venture. I took Destiny's grapes to a well know Custom Micro-Crush Winery just 1/2 mile from our property. Today Destiny’s Cabernet is produced under the expertise of two well known vintners, Eric Lyman and Brie Cadman, here in the Napa Valley. Proudly, the winery is a certified Napa Valley Green Winery. 

While I was busy with Destiny Wine Tours and Destiny Family Wines, my wife Deborah found a 1929 fire engine. In 2017, we converted it to a mobile bar truck and launched

Napa Valley Cocktail Company

Looking forward to sharing our treasured wine, Destiny Cabernet with you soon. And asking my Dad's favorite question "Would you have it again?" Ray Hanson Sr.
