This our second visit to MO and we're members of the wine club so since we were out there for my birthday I asked the owner and winemaker Jason Moore if he'd do the tasting for us. Jason is a really busy guy not just with his own wine but other gigs he has so I was happy that he was generous with his time. Although I pretty much already knew his story/background it was cool to sit around the table with him as he told the story of how he ended up in Napa making wine and how he ended up with the barrels he uses for his awesome Collection wine. Ended up buying a couple of the 2016 Collection which hasn't been released yet, it is the bomb and worth the money. Go here for a tasting and make sure you do lunch right next door at Brasswood and ask for the mozzarella app that isn't on the menu.

A group of 8 of us friends went to Modus Operandi because we heard so many great reviews of Jason Moore’s wines. The tasting was conducted at the Brasswood Winery complex in St. Helena at an outdoor area perfect for a large group like ours. Not every winery will accept groups larger than 6 so I’m very appreciative they were able to accommodate us. Caitlyn, our wine ambassador, also suggested we eat at the Brasswood Bar and Kitchen which is also part of the complex. Great suggestion as the food was superb. We then walked over to Caitlyn for the tasting. We went through all of Jason’s latest offerings and also tasted his reserve “Collection 2016” Cabernet Sauvignon. That wine was so unbelievably delicious that we ordered 4 on the spot along with the 2018 Vicarious Red blend. Great job here all around from welcoming conversation, thorough explanation of the wines and of course the wines themselves were terrific. Highly recommended.

We had one time slot to fill on our recent trip to Napa, and M.O. seemed like it would be a good fit...and it was! We've been to approximately 60-70 wineries over the last 10 years, we usually can find one or two varieties at each vineyard that we're willing to purchase. Modus Operandi Cellars is one of the few where everthing we tasted...we wanted to buy. Caitlyn met us at the outside tasting lounge, and proceeded to give us a great experience. We tasted 4 of their wines, both white and red, and were pleasantly surprised that not just one or two...but every single wine we tasted, we loved! We bought those 4 and also joined their club. Very hard not to when not only are the wines top notch, but currently club shipments ship free. Great wine and a very friendly, easy going hostess. Can't wait to visit again.

Out private tasting with Caitlyn was amazing. She was so fun and knowledgeable. The wines were amazing. The cheese plate was so worth it too. You won't be disappointed.

I enjoyed a terrific lunch and wine pairing with Caitlyn. We tasted a nice variety of MO wines from the various vineyards from which they source their fruit. The high quality was evident through the selections, my favorite of which was the Pinot Noir from Bacigalupi vineyards. Caitlyn was very knowledgeable and personable; the wine sells itself really, but she was able to describe the processes and winemaking philosophies behind the labels. I highly recommend both the wines and the lunch pairing experience.
