Family-Owned and Operated Spring Mountain Wineries
The Spring Mountain Winegrowing District is home to two dozen vineyards, all producing small batches of mountain wine. Nestled on the hills behind Saint Helena, this area neighbors the famous Napa Valley, but it is quiet, peaceful and far removed from the constant line of tourists that visit the valley floor. With 1,000 acres of grapes there is much more to see and taste in Spring Mountain District AVA.
For a great vineyard experience, visit family-owned and operated wineries which are some of the best Spring Mountain wineries. Since all visits are by appointment only, you're never stuck waiting in line or dealing with a big crowd. Instead, each vineyard tour is performed by a member of the winemaking team in an intimate setting where you can ask questions about the wine making process, family history and winery events.
A Secluded Mountain Jewel
A visit to Sherwin Family Vineyards gives you a glimpse behind the scenes of some of the best small batch wines coming out of the Spring Mountain Winegrowing District. Our 30-acre property is stunningly beautiful with a private lake and more than 14 acres of vines producing a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes.
A Modern Re-Imagining of Traditional Wine
Explore traditional winemaking, where every blend is a truly unique experience at Sherwin Family Vineyards. Small, private tours are available when scheduled in advance. Our very first wine only produced 140 cases, all of which was sold to local restaurants, retailers, and customers in 1999. Two decades later, production has increased, but we remain a winery that focuses on exceptional quality over quantity.
While Sherwin Family Vineyards produces both white and red wines, the reds garner outstanding reviews from first time and repeat visitors. When looking for the best Spring Mountain wineries, the wine comes first. Our reserve cab and Cellar Scraps (a vineyard blend) both garner positive reviews and recommendations.
We are also the only winery in the United States honored to be able to place the American flag on our Commemorative Etched large format bottles, Patriotic Pour. Shortly after September 11th, Sherwin Family Vineyards participated in an international wine auction that benefitted the families of employees of Windows on the World restaurant that was lost in the disaster. Our Patriotic Pour is produced in limited quantity each year with only the best Spring Mountain grapes on our estate.
A Day of Delicious Relaxation
With a combination of exquisite mountain views, a private lake, stunning landscaping and the neatly terraced rows of grapes, Sherwin Family Vineyards is a not-to-be-missed experience when looking for the best Spring Mountain wineries. We pride ourselves on a full sensory experience while you enjoy our handcrafted wines.
