Mount Veeder offers the most extreme growing conditions in Napa Valley. Nature restricts the plantable area to about 1,000 acres currently, due to the rugged terrain. Wines from Mount Veeder are rare indeed, about 1.3% of Napa Valley’s annual production. 

What makes Mount Veeder unique?

  • The only Napa Valley mountain appellation that adjoins the cool Carneros district.
  • Ancient, pushed up seabed is the predominant soil, while the rest of Napa Valley is primarily volcanic.
  • Highest vineyards in Napa Valley, nearing 2,400 feet.
  • Yields average 2 - 2½ tons per acre for Cabernet Sauvignon, about half the average in Napa Valley
  • Longest growing season and latest harvest in Napa Valley, sometimes stretching into November.
  • High risk conditions demand limited use of machinery. Nearly all vineyard work must done by hand.
We have a very limited offering of The 2016 Paul Joseph Cabernet Sauvignon from our grower's Mountain Vineyard high on Mt Veeder. Tastings will be complimentary for DRWS Members and bottles will be discounted during the presale event this Friday AND Saturday..Hope to see you there.
