Dakota Shy

From carefully selected vineyards, produced in very small quantities and artfully crafted to reflect a sense of place, Dakota Shy wines are a testament to Napa Valley’s reputation for producing the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines in the world. Bold enticing aromas of black cherry via a cabernet or a bright complex citrus blossom via a sauvignon blanc, Dakota Shy is perfect for those special moments. 
Dakota Shy grew out of the passion that friends and colleagues, Todd Newman and Tom Garrett, have for the wines, history and vineyards of Napa Valley. Their goal is to craft wines of substance and place that rival the best of what Napa Valley has to offer; from the pinnacle of quality and luxury to world-class Cabernet Sauvignon that can proudly be placed on the table and enjoyed every week. 
After years of working together at Revana Family Vineyard, under the tutelage of Napa Valley winemaking legends Heidi Barrett and Thomas Brown, and vineyard manager Jim Barbour, these two friends set out with a determination to create a world-class estate of their own. 
They began by sourcing Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from a range of great vineyards throughout Napa Valley. These vineyards represent the arch of grape growing history in the valley from old, trusted sources to new, highly regarded plantings. Produced in limited quantities, their handcrafted Cabernets reflect the highest expression of the vintage. 

Jimmy V’s Steak House & Tavern

Jimmy V’s is an elegant eatery with a patio offering American fare such as steak & seafood, plus cocktails & wine. They specialize in hearty, traditional fare and courteous, friendly service. In addition to their generously cut Certified Angus Beef, which is cooked to juicy perfection, they feature fresh seafood, Italian specialties, homemade desserts and one of the area’s most extensive wine lists. Their fine cuisine, atmosphere and impeccable service create a truly memorable dining experience.

Friends, family, food, and wine were always reasons to celebrate when Jim Valvano came to dine. Jokes were shared, times reminisced, friendships immortalized. It seemed only natural to name the restaurant after the dear friend who started the tradition that Jimmy V’s continues today.

In the spirit of the man who inspired us to embrace each day with laughter, thought, and emotion, we invite our guests to share Jimmy V’s passion for delectable food, fine wine, and exceptional service in the company of friends.

Everyone’s a part of the Jimmy V’s Family!
