Howell Mountain AVA

Rugged Intensity

Howell Mountain rises nearly 2,000 feet above sea level on Napa Valley’s northeastern edge. This elevation gives the rugged region dramatically warmer summer temperatures and colder winters than down on the valley floor, resulting in later budbreak and harvest than in other Napa Valley appellations. Our Las Posadas Vineyard is planted in the dry, volcanic tuff soils of the mountainside. The vines’ struggle to take root here causes them to produce sparse clusters of small, thick-skinned berries that give our wines intense, full-bodied, deep fruit character with attractive savory notes.
