Our Vineyard

Vineyard {511} is located in the Diamond Mountain District of Napa Valley and rises 750 feet above the valley floor.  On a west-facing, steep slope, it catches the heat of the afternoon sun. Located above the fog line, its rocky, volcanic soil produces mountain fruit with deep-colored, small berries and wines that are bigger, more complex and more age-worthy than wines from the valley floor.

The Diamond Mountain District is located between the northern end of St. Helena and the southern end of Calistoga, on the west side of and above Highway 29. Although it stretches 5000 acres to the Napa-Sonoma county line, the Diamond Mountain District AVA only comprises a tiny 500 acres of vineyards, making it truly unique.

Our vineyard is managed by John Derr Farming which, along with winemaker Rob Lloyd, carefully works with the fruit to reflect the terroir’s natural character.
