Mountain Vineyard Wines from Napa Valley and Sonoma
Sam Baxter, Terra Valentine
Craig Becker, Priest Ranch
From lab partners at UC Davis to neighbors on Spring Mountain, Sam Baxter of Terra Valentine and Craig Becker of Priest Ranch feel more like brothers. Join them and learn about the wonderful wines they make from fruit sourced from mountain vineyards in Napa and Sonoma and understand how fruit from mountain vineyards influences the wines.
Sam Baxter stands tall among an esteemed few, of the next generation of Napa Valley winemakers. Baxter literally grew up in the grapevines, trailing father Phil, whose winemaking made a legendary mark in the late ’60s when the Napa Valley first experienced international notoriety as a respected winegrowing region. Terra Valentine sources from Spring Mountain whose varied terrain shines through in the robust yet balanced style of the wines–exhibiting the true essence of the Spring Mountain District. While mountain viticulture presents its challenges, for Terra Valentine, it comes down to hand-tending the vines to get the most out of the diverse soil types and ripening patterns that the mountain bears. The reward–wines ripe with intense flavor and color.
