Mountain AVA in Napa County welcomes visitors

St. Helena, Napa Valley, August 2021 — Wineries in the Spring Mountain District AVA in St. Helena are welcoming visitors and customers to their tasting rooms. Like most wineries in Napa Valley, visits are by appointment only.

This AVA may have been one of the hardest hit growing regions when the Glass Fire rampaged through Napa Valley last fall. Thanks to the resilience of the people who farm on Spring Mountain, today the roads are clear and wineries are welcoming customers.

There are currently about 30 vineyards and wineries in the appellation, encompassing 1,000 acres of vineyard. With a unique identity formed over one and one half centuries, the Spring Mountain District appellation became an official AVA in 1993. The region is known for its wide array of mixed hardwood forests, which include oak, madrone, Douglas fir, redwood, tan oak and conifers. The AVA is known for its steeply sloped vineyard blocks, which span slopes up to 30% at elevations between 200 and 2,250 feet.

The Spring Mountain District AVA is primarily reached via Spring Mountain Road, a 10-15 minute drive from the town of St. Helena. Spring Mountain Road provides dramatic vistas as the road curves to the top of the AVA. Heavily forested, the area does not feel commercial, in that there are relatively few wineries, most of which are not visible from the Road. Wineries here grow highly regarded Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay, as well as outstanding Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Syrah and Zinfandel.
