This spectacular winery is set on 560 acres ranging in elevation from 600 to 1,600 feet above sea level, with panoramic views of the Napa Valley and beyond. The formal gardens, underground wine caves and elements of the owners English and Chinese heritage make this one of the most striking wineries to visit in Napa.
Located a twisting 20 minute ride from St. Helena, the stunning views and mountain fruit make the effort worthwhile. One unique feature is the brick inlay that bisects the crushpad: part of the winery is in Napa County, part of it is in Sonoma County!
Truly a family dedication beginning with clearing the forest from their mountain estate to plant the vineyards, to making the wine and visiting guests to their home estate. The Schweigers define the word hospitality.
The first vines were planted in 1948 with the white Burgundies that Fred and Eleanor McCrea enjoyed. Now under the tutelage of the third generation, the family is committed to making wines of impeccable quality and longevity.
The new home estate is located high atop Spring Mountain with sweeping views from Marin to the Sonoma Coast. The wines show the intensity of mountain grown fruit and balanced elegance.
