Never judge a wine by its label! William James Cellars is a female-owned and operated boutique winery in California by family proprietor, Robin Bogue. The name on the label hails from the two special men in Robins life; her dad, William and her son, James. They mean the world to her.

William James Cellars unique distinction, “Femina Vita” is very rare in a traditionally male driven marketplace and has created a marketing niche. “Femina Vita” means life of a woman. When Robin sets her sights on something, she makes a difference.

For a behind the scenes look at our boutique style winery join us on a private tour and tasting for a fun, interactive and educational program offered exclusively to our wine club members.
