Our History


Great friends - Matt White, Mark Gray, and I take little for granted. This wine venture is no exception. Our goal: to create something worth appreciating, like the time we’ve spent together.

Our search for an area rich in heritage, resources, and committed winemakers took us 2,297 miles west from our homes in Kentucky to Napa Valley. We traveled to California time and again. Wine was shared, stories were told, and our idea was born.

For those not as accustomed to leaning against the rail, Post Parade refers to the moment when thoroughbred horses walk on to the racetrack, minutes before stepping in to the starting gate. In our eyes, a rare moment of perfection.

At our helm is Thomas Rivers Brown, one of Napa Valley’s most distinctive and acclaimed winemakers.

Our inaugural vintage, the 2010 Post Parade Cabernet Sauvignon, was small but mighty. And now, after six vintages, a 95 Robert Parker rating, and expanded offerings, we are eager to release the 2015 Post Parade Cabernet Sauvignon to you this spring. Joining Post Parade in this upcoming release, the newest addition to our stable, the 2015 Stretch Drive Cabernet Sauvignon: Rutherford fruit, same TRB magic, immediate drinkability. Stretch Drive will be making its debut to you in its second year of production.
