Pride Mountain Vineyards Description

Pride Mountain Vineyards sits high atop the Mayacamas Mountains, straddling the Napa and Sonoma county line. Located at the site of historic Summit Ranch, where wine grapes have been grown since 1869, this beautiful setting includes wine caves dug deep into the mountains and the haunting ruins of an old stone winery that dates back to 1890. The wooden-beamed, modest-sized winery blends smoothly into its mountainous surroundings and California heritage. Pride Mountain Vineyards produce estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Sangiovese and Chardonnay. The vineyard is situated at the top of Spring Mountain; the 235 acre property offering spectacular views of the estate's 85 vineyard acres and the surrounding mountains.

Jim and Carolyn Pride founded Pride Mountain Vineyards in 1990. It is renowned and recognized as one of the “world’s greatest wine estates” by Robert Parker, Jr. Their wines have appeared numerous times on The Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the World list, and have been served at the White House more than 25 times during the last two decades, making them highly sought after vintages.

Tastings are held in an elegantly rustic tasting room at a beautiful pewter bar. The atmosphere is convivial and the knowledgeable tasting room staff enjoys sharing their enthusiasm for the property's fine wines and answering all manner of questions about viticulture and the winery. The winery offers an education vineyard and cave tour. At the end of the tour, visitors can walk down to the ruin of the original Summit Ranch winery and picnic in the nearby fir and oak trees.
