Co-owners Scotti Stark and Michael DeSantis blend their years of experience in business and wine, along with their slightly nutty personalities, to bring you fabulous wine. An über boutique winery that knows no boundaries, Harumph is particular when it comes to fruit. Sourcing from only the best vineyards and the finest growers in Napa Valley, they have the luxury of choosing with whom they want to work and the freedom to make the wine we want to make.

While we’ve got great taste in wine, our taste in movies is undeniably awesome
