Spring Mountain District: Some of the Best Wines (and Views) in Napa Valley
At Beau Wine Tours, it’s our passion to share wine country with you, and one of our favorite parts of Napa Valley is the Spring Mountain District! Perched on the western side of the Napa Valley in the Mayacamas Mountains, that run divide Napa and Sonoma, Spring Mountain District offers sweeping views and some of the best wines around. These wineries are eager to share unique bottlings from grapes grown at high elevations and cooler mountain temperatures. Join us on a virtual tour of three winery estates in Spring Mountain District.

Celebrity wine-maker Heidi Barrett brings her unique style and reputation to Fantesca’s boutique lineup of wine – only 3,000 cases a year. Barrett, who has garnered five hundred-point scores in her career, crafts the winery’s highly regarded Chardonnay and Cabernet offerings. The winery’s unusual name comes from a stock character type in the Italian theatrical tradition Commedia dell’Arte: La Fantesca, the love interest whose “smart, sexy, and unpretentious” style is reflected in Fantesca’s wines. Owners Duane and Susan Hoff believe that great wine “isn’t a trophy to collect, but a treasure to be shared with family and close friends.” Come share the treasure of Fantesca Vineyards. Tastings are by appointment only.
