Growing Conditions

We are very excited to introduce our first Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Pride Mountain Vineyards. The 1995 vintage produced red wines with phenomenal depth and concentration. The barrels selected for our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon represent the richest lots in the cellar. Blended and balanced with French Oak, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon will offer enjoyment for many years to come. Pride Mountain Vineyards is located on the very top of Spring Mountain, above 2,000 feet in elevation, at the site of the historic Summit Ranch. The original winery building dating back to 1890 still stands. Currently 52 acres of vines produce grapes for our Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Viognier.
