Diamond Mountain District AVA
Our estate vineyard on Diamond Mountain spans 20 planted acres of hillside land on the northern slope of the mountain. Divided into nine blocks planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and one to Merlot – the vineyard shares the land with approximately 20 acres of natural forest, and the undulating hills result in numerous elevations, aspects, and microclimates. Because of its high altitude, the vineyard is blessed with little fog, abundant direct sunlight, and volcanic soils that heat and cool quickly.

Moon Mountain District AVA
Our spectacular 34-acre property on Moon Mountain straddles the Napa/Sonoma County line. At 1800 feet elevation, the vineyard’s 15 planted acres are located near the highest point of the mountain. Bordered by Napa’s Mount Veeder on the east side, the site’s shallow, volcanic soils and craggy peaks are alternately grazed by sunlight and crosswinds off the Pacific Ocean, creating a microclimate ideally suited for growing grapes.
- Soils: Clay Loam
- Acres: 15 planted
- Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc
