A brief history
Spring Mountain Vineyard is a privately-owned family estate devoted to Cabernet Sauvignon and the Bordeaux blending varieties. Of its 845 acre footprint, 225 acres are planted to vine and delineated into 135 individual hillside vineyard blocks. Each block has unique soil, exposure and microclimate characteristics. The great diversity of steep hillside plantings is the source of distinctive wines with concentrated flavors, soft tannins and supreme age-ability. Spring Mountain Vineyard produces the following estate grown wines: Elivette- our signature Bordeaux-blend of Cabernet; Cabernet Sauvignon that captures the power of the mountain; Cabernet Franc; Petit Verdot; Chardonnay; Merlot; and, Sauvignon Blanc that is barrel-fermented with sur-lie-batonnage. All wines from the Spring Mountain Vineyard are estate-grown and vinified to honor and reflect the unique terroir of Spring Mountain.; The estate contains a number of historic structures including Villa Miravalle of 1885; the La Perla winery of 1872; the towered stone winery, Chateau Chevalier of 1891; and several caves and barns from the 19th century.
