About This Wine

Mt. Brave produces staggeringly intense and complex wines from its high-altitude estate vineyard in the Mount Veeder AVA located in the Mayacamas Mountains. First planted to grapes in the 1860s, this wild and isolate winegrowing region features panoramic views and some of the lowest yields in all of the Napa Valley. Despite being the largest AVA in Napa Valley, Mount Veeder produces less than 2% of all its wines.

The Mt. Brave vineyard is famous for its rugged terrain and steep slopes, where extreme conditions require that all work in the vineyard be done by hand. Thin, gravelly loam soils with rocks large and small force the vines to develop deep roots. High above the fog, the vineyard sits at between 425 and 550 metres, where nutrient poor, thin soils barely hold water, resulting in tiny berries with intense flavor. While Mount Veeder is cooler because of its elevation, it’s the first to see the early morning sun. This extended sun exposure helps ripen the tannins.
