The idea of creating Page Wine Cellars happened in the summer of 1996. The opportunity opened up for Bryan Page to tour many Chateaus throughout the Bordeaux region, falling in love with their incredible wines. After his culinary tour in Europe ended, he returned home to California. He simultaneously worked at several restaurants saving every penny, while apprenticing at a few Napa Valley wineries, with the goal and desire of making his own wines, under his own label.
In 1997 Page Wine Cellars officially began. The first vintage of Proprietary Red produced only 36 cases. His journey from culinary school student and server, to chef and Sommelier, then onto winemaker had begun.

The term Garagistes refers to a group of innovative winemakers in the Bordeaux region that produce Vins de Garage or garage wine
In this tradition, we produce our wines in our warehouse, concentrating on the wine and not the surroundings. For our wine this means an elegant mouth feel with edgy flavor profiles. This elegance with an edge style shines thru with the cult following of our Revolver Cabernet Franc The Fury and our Revolver The Stash, a limited Cabernet Sauvignon.
