Award Winning Wines from the Mountains North of Napa invade San Francisco!
Wienz Withh Altitude!
Anyway you say it, Wines with Altitude makes a statement. It says “Get off the Valley floor!” Every wine lover’s been there, done that. Many have ventured in the southern hills of the Mayacamas Mountains and have experienced the overwhelming benefits of high elevation fruit as evidenced by the wines of Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain, Diamond Mountain and even Howell Mountain. Now, it time to venture onward and upward to the true High Elevation Mayacamas Mountain fruit –
that of Lake County and its budding wine industry. Lake County's intensity of place-climate, soils and sunlight-produces grapes and wines of quality and character. The compelling 'high elevation' mountain terroir, pure California air, & sustainable mindset of this wine region= great "Wines with Altitude".
Why is everyone heading North?
It happened first within the valley itself. Napa Valley’s top growers and wineries started heading up to the hillsides and mountainous regions of Napa. From Harlan in the foothills of Mt. Veeder above the Oakville Grade to Bryant Family on Prichard Hill to David Abreu on Howell Mountain, Napa’s top vineyards and wineries are “moving to the hills”. This trend is continuing in Lake County as top Napa Valley growers (like Andy Beckstoffer) and top winemakers (like Greg Graham formerly of Rombauer and Nils Venge of Groth, Saddleback and Venge Family fame) have set up shop in the Mayacamas Mountains north of Napa Valley.
Get ahead of the Trend!
Don’t miss the boat! It’s happened to all of us. Whether you are a distributor looking or consumer, we’ve all missed out on buying that wine or signing up for that wineries’ mailing list in the past. Make sure you don’t miss out on this High Elevation Wine trend. Come down, meet the winemakers, taste the wines and get into the “know” on this upcoming wine region!
Over a dozen wineries including Shannon Ridge Vineyards, Gregory Graham, Langtry Estate & Vineyards, Laujor Estate Winery, Cougar's Leap, Noggle Wines, Bullion Creek, Glamazon, Mt. Konocti Winery, Cache Creek Winery, Vigilance, Rosa d’Oro, Steele Wines, Six Sigma, Sol Rouge, Thorn Hill Vineyards and Diamond Ridge to name a few.
Nearly 100 wines including both varietals popular in the Mayacamas Mountain region like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Syrah, Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc as well as lesser known boutique varietals from Aglianico to Roussanne.
One day to try all of these Lake County Wines right in San Francisco on Saturday, September 8th.

When & Where
Lake County Winery Association
Lake County is one of the newest destinations for those looking to enjoy fine wines in a relaxed, rural and breathtaking environment. This award-winning unspoiled and undiscovered wine region is located only two hours by car from the San Francisco Bay area and the Sacramento valley.
Encompassing Clear Lake and Mt. Konocti, Lake County holds California's largest natural freshwater lake and a striking and majestic dormant volcano. Mt. Konocti is responsible for shaping a wide range of elevations suitable for growing a wide selection of varietals.
High elevations, rugged lands, gentle slopes and rolling hillsides that melt into expansive and fertile valley floors that feed into the spectacular and picturesque Clear Lake are the origins of Lake County’s highly acclaimed wines.
