Irish Monkey Cellars started out as a hobby for the owner-operator-winemaker Bob Lynch; these days it produces about 2,000 cases annually. The grapes are grown in Napa and Amador and the wine is made in East Oakland. It produces four white varietals (Torrontes, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier); eleven red (Sangiovese, Pinot Nior, SyrBec, MerBec, Merlot, Syrah, Primitivo, Cab Franc, Cab Sauvignon, Meritage, Touriga Nacional); and one sweet wine called Captain's Table made from Touriga-family grapes, sugar, and brandy.

Stage Left Cellars, based in Oakland, specializes in Rhône varietals. The winery sources its grapes from vineyards all over the West Coast, bottling Paso Robles-grown Viognier, Grenache, and Syrah, in addition to Pinot Noir (and Grenache) grown in the Santa Maria Valley, and Syrah from the Santa Ynez Valley and the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon.
