Diamond Mountain District Wine Tours
We invite you to accompany us on an unforgettable private wine tasting tour of one of the northernmost appellations of Napa Valley and partake in the age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet Francs that Diamond Mountain wineries are famous for.
In this distinctive microclimate, there are approximately 450 acres of vineyards planted on steep slopes. The climate here is slightly warmer than the southern mountain vineyards and significantly cooler than the valley floor vineyards, producing full-bodied and firmly structured wines. The elevation for these vineyards ranges from 400 ft. to 2,220 ft., protecting the fruit from the cooling fog and providing ample direct sunlight. These vineyards contain volcanic, grainy soils dispersed throughout the barren mountain range. Such challenging conditions produce strong, deep-rooted vines that, in turn, create a multi-dimensional, robust wine.
Although the areas history dates back to 1862, a few ambitious growers rejuvenated the region in the late 1960s. Jack and Jamie Davies of Schrambsberg Winery endeavored to bring sparkling wine to the lower most southern part of region and purchased their historical property in 1965. Al Brounstein, a pioneer who saw the potential of the mountain and purchased 79 acres, contributed to the renewal of the Diamond Mountain District in 1968. His Diamond Creek Winery has four distinct vineyards grown from “First-Growth” Bordeaux cuttings, which produce highly-rated and highly coveted Cabernet Sauvignons.
Be our guest on an unforgettable outing to Diamond Mountain, where you will enjoy rich, firmly structured Cabernets, exquisite aging sparkling wines, and a variety of Chardonnays.
