Mt. Brave Cover Image

A brief history

Mt. Brave is a tribute to the pioneering spirit of those who settled the rugged terrain of Mt. Veeder during the 1800s. Nestled on the western ridges of the Mayacamas, in the northern tip of the Mt. Veeder AVA, the Mt. Brave vineyard succeeds in its struggle to produce fruit of great distinction. The wines of Mt. Brave show the characteristic brambly aromas and blue fruit flavors that are common to Mt. Veeder but are expressed here uncommonly well. They feature intense minerality, well-defined tannins allowing for extended aging, and recognizable mouth-pleasing acidity. The incredible structure suggests an extended development over time, but the wines have been crafted for enjoyment and celebration in the present.
