Spring Mountain Wine Tours
Traveling through the beautiful and intimate hillside terrain of Spring Mountain is a private wine tasting tour our customers adore. The terrain will beckon you to slow down the pace as you are chauffeured through the vineyards nestled on these lush slopes that produce such powerful and distinctive red wines.
Spring Mountain District is just a few minutes off highway 29, behind the town of Saint Helena. Small vineyards meander through this region. There are two-dozen family-owned and operated Napa wineries and 1,000 acres of vineyards. Visitors are often greeted by the owner of the winery, a family member, or even the winemaker. Visits must be arranged in advance.
This District is the coolest and the wettest Napa Valley appellation, and its vineyards represent less than 2% of the valley’s wines. The rugged hillside is faced with numerous challenges and the vineyards demand extra attention from the famed viticulturists and winemakers who choose to grow here. The harsher conditions create extra stress on the vines and the grapes are often hand-tilled. This is a fruitful struggle, producing long-lived wines that are intense in character.
If your schedule permits, allow an entire day for a private wine tasting tour in the Spring Mountain District. We recommend letting our Concierge and tour guides arrange a special picnic, so you don’t have to traverse up and down the mountain when it’s time for lunch.
