Okay, fellow winos, here’s a little bit of Napa that is coming to San Francisco, the annual ~NAPA VALLEY WITH ALTITUDE~ tasting from Uncorked Events, featuring over 100 wines from Spring Mountain, Mount Veeder, and Diamond Mountain on Napa Valley’s western edge (the Mayacamas Range). Virtually all of these wines are over $60/bottle retail, many over $100, and for many of these wineries, this is their only public tasting of the year as many are highly allocated and/or tiny production.
Here’s more from the event announcement: “The Mayacamas Mountain range rises high above the western edge of Napa Valley, encompassing three distinct viticultural areas—Mount Veeder, Spring Mountain, and Diamond Mountain.
“These mountain wineries are remote—often hidden from view among forests and steep winding roads. Each has a unique story and diverse individuals—families, businessmen, farmers and artists—all unified by their deep passion for mountain grape growing.
“Though farming these mountains is backbreaking and labor intensive, the resulting wines are distinctive and profound—largely a result of the unique growing conditions that separate the mountain terroir from the valley floor.
“Wines from the Mayacamas Mountains are renowned for their richness, intensity, distinctive wild berry flavors and robust tannins—truly a testament to the relentless passion of a daring group of growers and winemakers.”
