They say home is where the heart is, but Housley is where the wine is. This week we are honoring a beautiful Black woman who has graced us with her presence, integrity, and kindness on tv screens, across America and beyond, for decades. We are extremely excited to feature Housley Napa Valley, a small family-owned winery and tasting room established by none other than the icon and childhood role model, Tamera Mowery-Housley, and her husband, Adam Housley.
Actress, TV personality, Daytime Emmy and NAACP Image award-recipient, Tamera Mowry-Housley, became a household name at a very young age. If you’re unfamiliar with her work, she has starred in several television shows and films such as Sister, Sister, Tia & Tamera, Twitches,(and the sequel), Seventeen Again, A Christmas Miracle, and many more. Tamera has also served as a host for the popular daytime talk show, The Real, and received various awards for her work and accomplishments on and off the set. Apart from her celebrity lifestyle, Tamara is very grounded, family-oriented, traditional, and deeply connected to her religious values and beliefs. Adam Housley has also spent some time behind the camera as a professional baseball player for the Milwaukee Brewers and the Detroit Tigers, and as an award-winning journalist for networks such as FOX News and NBC. For over six generations, the Housley family has lived in “wine country”, more specifically Yountville, California, where Adam and his brother learned the true value and craftmanship of wine production. From growing the grapes to bottling the wine, the Housley family has decades of experience in winemaking.
By 2011, Tamera and Adam have been working to create space for themselves in the wine industry by establishing their own wineries in Napa Valley and Acampo/Lodi, and most recently, in 2019, a tasting room, called the Living Room in downtown Napa Valley, where you can enjoy wine tastings with chocolate pairings or artisan cheeses, and purchase local, handcrafted products, such as candles, mugs, and wooden cutting boards. The Housley collection offers several wine varietals, highlighting a 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, their first produced wine made 100% from this grape varietal, and the Adam & Tamera’s Field Blend, a balanced combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah. Their wines, which are produced at Housley Napa Valley and Century Oak Winery (in Acampo/ Lodi), have received numerous awards and accolades for their approachability, affordability, and unique combination of rich fruit flavors. You can purchase their wines either online or at their tasting room for an inexpensive price. And as you enjoy their wines, be sure to also check out their YouTube channel, The Housley Life, where you can follow the daily life of Tamera and her family.
