About Us

Our Story

Looking for a small high end wine producing treasure?  Look no further!  M&O Wine Cellars is a small boutique wine producer located in the heart of the Napa Valley.  We specialize in exclusive, limited lot and luxury style wines.  Back in August of 2008, founders Steve Miller and Juan Orozco first met while working at a winery, in Rutherford, CA. It was there when they both realized that they shared the same passion, drive and aspirations for the wine industry. After working together for a year, Steve moved on to two other wineries before reconnecting with Juan in 2012, and they have been working together ever since. They both learned how to make luxury style and age worthy wines, and that is the style with which they intend to stay.  In 2011, Steve tried his first attempt at making a very small batch of Pinot Noir. Without putting in much money or using proper materials, it did not meet his expectations. Due to his perfectionism and drive, he set his sights on the 2012 vintage and vowed to do everything the ‘right way’. The end result was amazing and better than expected! As soon as Juan and Steve started working together again, they became very serious about starting their own label. That is when Juan incorporated his 14 years of winemaking practices with the old world style they both learned. Due to some unforeseen events, things had to be put on hold for a few years but the dream never died.  Finally, in August of 2017, M&O Wine Cellars came into fruition! We are crafting three varietals which include Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. The 2016 Pinot Noir and the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc were bottled in July 2018.  The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon was bottled in September 2019, and the 2018 Pinot Noir was bottled in December 2019.  Our intent is to offer luxury style and quality wines, at affordable prices!

2016 S’deuce Pinot Noir - Carneros, Napa Valley (Library)

The 2016 Pinot Noiris very seductive with many layers. The name S’deuce was created when co-founder, Steve Miller, discovered his favorite style of Pinot Noir on his second vintage and the name is a perfect match to the structure of the wine. S’deuce or, ‘Steve’s second’, is full bodied, silky, seductive and speaks to palates that prefer bigger style wines. Carefully crafted by winemaker, Juan Orozco, this complex Pinot Noir will tell many stories.

 

2018 S’deuce Pimot Noir – Russian River Valley

This gem has beautiful aromas with dry rose petals stealing the show.  It is soft, rich and elegant with hints of spice and mineral characteristics.  On the mid palate, it shows a bit of white pepper, pomegranate, raspberry, cherry, and cinnamon.  This complex wine carries on with a long finish that showcases the essence of the Russian River Valley.  For our food and wine paring friends, enjoy this wine with roasted chicken, duck, pulled pork, and rich pastas.  Enjoy!

 

2018 MIDWEEK Sauvignon Blanc - North Coast

The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is named after co-founder Wednesday Barsana Miller. This is her favorite varietal, and both Steve and Juan found it quite fitting to showcase this carefully crafted wine in her honor. This Bordeaux style Sauvignon Blanc, like Wednesday, is very bright, sexy and has a great body!

 

2017 The Artist Cabernet Sauvignon – Howell Mountain

With a limited amount produced, this beautiful Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is one you won’t want to miss!  It has been carefully handcrafted with patience and love, with two years in barrel.  It displays elegance and grace with a silky body that is robust and bold.  It’s not only just a great food pairing wine, it is amazing just on its own.  We are very excited to share this impressive Cabernet Sauvignon with you!
