At Foretell we examine our past and revel in the moment to Foretell our future—the very essence of the wines we produce. It’s these philosophies and approach to life that resonate with proprietors Sam and Angela Baxter and have influenced Sam’s winemaking approach for the past 15 years.

As a Napa native, winemaking has always been in the blood for Sam, whose earliest recollections are running through the vineyard at his father’s side, and for Angela whose family settled in the Santa Ynez Valley in the late 1800s.

Sam studied abroad in Australia and graduated with a degree in fermentation science from the University of California, Davis, prior to landing at Terra Valentine in 1999 where he grew the wine program into the recognizable brand of today.

Foretell wines exemplify the art, science, and element of chance that Sam and Angela pour into every bottle of this coveted wine.
