Our goal is to make intensely flavored wines that reflect and honor our unique growing situation at 2100’ elevation. Our vineyards mainly face south and are above the fog layer which results in vines bathed in sunshine from morning to evening throughout the growing season. These distinct growing conditions result in big red wines that are on the black-fruit side of the ripeness spectrum and loaded with varietal character and a nice amount of acidity on the finish.
Pride Mountain Vineyards is a 235-acre estate with a wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery that blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage.
Over 23,000 square feet of subterranean storage winds naturally under the hillside, opening out onto a terrace overlooking the vineyards and the scenic northern Napa Valley.
