Mountain Vineyard and Winery is a small, family-owned and operated winery
specializing in limited production
of handcrafted fine wines from our estate-grown Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvedre,
Muscat Canelli, Petit Verdot, Syrah and Zinfandel. Our vineyards are
located on 43 acres in a picturesque and sunny high valley (1,500
ft. elevation) in Ramona, California surrounded by mountains. Our
microclimate is perfect for growing red wine grapes and dry-farming.
Hot long summer days and cool nights produce beautifully ripe fruits
with deep intense flavors.
philosophy is to grow grapes with as little impact on
our surroundings as possible and live in harmony with the nature
farming practices follow a basic principle of
maintaining a balanced and healthy environment in which we live.
We take great pride in every aspect of grape-growing
and wine-making to ensure the quality of our handcrafted estate
Our wine-making techniques include harvesting by hand organically
grown grapes, small bin fermentation, hand
punch-down of caps, hand press and aging in small oak
barrels. Our hand-crafted estate wines are made naturally with
great care to capture the distinct varietal's flavors and aromatic
1996, we started making wine on premises using locally grown
grapes. In 1997, we planted our own vineyards with Cabernet
Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvedre and Zinfandel varietals. Since then, we expanded
our vineyard to add Barbera, Petit Verdot and Syrah to our collection of red wine varietals. We
recently planted a small vineyard of Muscat Canelli.
