WINES FROM DISTINCT REGIONS

The wines from each distinct region express the flavor characteristics of the region they were grown in.

Landing-Mt.Veeder-Thumb

MOUNT VEEDER

The steep mountain slopes and higher elevation vineyards of Mount Veeder take advantage of the cooling marine influence from the San Pablo Bay, providing cool afternoon breezes and warmer nights creating microclimates that produce rich mountain fruit of distinct character.

NAPA VALLEY

Our Napa Valley vineyards benefit from the cooling influence of the San Pablo Bay in the southern part of Napa Valley making it ideal for growing Chardonnay while the warmer longer, growing season in the eastern part of Napa Valley is ideal for growing Sauvignon Blanc and other red varietals.
