The Stats



Hi, my name is Jason Moore.
And my passion for wine struck at a pretty young age.

You see, I was born and raised in Dallas, and when I was 17 I started working in fine dining restaurants.

Well, pretty quickly the wine directors and sommeliers saw I was interested in the wines we served. So they took me under their wing and introduced me to some of the greatest wines on the planet. And suddenly my interest evolved into a passion.

Realizing that wine was my passion, at the age of 24, my girlfriend and I eloped (in secret), sold everything we owned and moved to Napa for me to pursue my lofty aspiration of becoming a winemaker.

And God bless this wonderful country, the land of opportunity… because here I am today…

Owner and Winemaker of Modus Operandi Cellars in Napa Valley.

And I have a single mission… to bring you some of the most innovative, coolest, and finest wines in the valley.


Chardonnay Sonoma Coast

Classic California Chardonnay… this has everything you’d want in a Chard and delivers it all at a tremendous value. Guaranteed!
Only 125 cases produced


Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast

This wine comes from a collection of vineyards along the Sonoma Coast, focusing on the Fort Ross-Seaview appellation. 200 cases produced.

Silky, smooth, balanced… 


Red Blend Napa Valley

Vicarious is a high impact and crowd pleasing blended wine. Most often composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petite Sirah, but the blend changes every year. Experience my passion Vicariously through the wine in your glass!

Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Deep garnet-purple colored, it has wonderfully fragrant blue and black fruits, florals and earth notes with savory olive and meat hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied with lovely ripe, grainy tannins and great freshness, with a firm, muscular structure and long, multi-layered finish.

Customer Reviews

The perfect intimate tasting with complex, high caliber wines and a personal touch from a great team.

Delicious & Educational Tasting at Modus Operandi!

Our group of 6 (+2 babies!) had an excellent tasting at MO with Jason and Caitlyn. We learned a ton and loved every wine we tasted. It was such a special experience to have a private session and it managed to be both laid back and elevated at once. Needless to say we all left with multiple bottles and/or as club members!

Amazing Modus Operandi tasting

We have visited Napa and Sonoma for the last several years and always love to find unique experiences. Modus Operandi is one of those, a very casual and relaxing visit. Jason does an excellent job letting his wines shine with amazing aroma and explosive flavor.

Caitlyn, hosted us in beautiful setting, discussing Modus’s wines in easy terms. Their wines are amazing! Definitely make this tasting part of your next trip to Napa.


Intimate Wine Tasting

Caitlyn was amazing! We had been to several wine tastings on our trip and when we came to this one we were amazed. I loved how Caitlyn sat with us at our table and gave us the history of the company. The cheese spread was on point and paired well with the wines being offered. Very down to earth experience. This tasting does not disappoint!
