The roots of Snows Lake Vineyard are deep in the terroir of the Mayacamas Mountains, deep in the history of wine in the North Coast, and deep in the traditions and expertise of a California farming family.
The soils of Snows Lake Vineyard are the classic volcanic, red grape soils of the Mayacamas, which have become famous through such vineyards as Diamond Creek in the Napa Valley, some fifteen miles away. These well-drained gravelly loams are so red in color that they have given their name to one of the North Coast’s newest AVAs: Red Hills Lake County. On a cold winter’s day, you can still see the steam plumes rising into the air from the geothermal vents on nearby peaks, part of the geologic processes that created our remarkable soils.
The roots are Snows Lake are deep....and the rewards are deeply satisfying.
