Pride Mountain Vineyard
Napa Valley, California
While the site of Pride Mountain Vineyards, formerly known as Summit Ranch, has been a source of grapes in Napa Valley since the 1890s, it wasn’t until 1991 that founders Jim and Carolyn Pride began making their own wine at this historic estate.
Pride Mountain Vineyards farms nearly 85 acres of vines in the Mayacamas Mountains at 2,100 feet above sea level. The grapes, grown on volcanic loam and clay hillside soils, benefit from cooler temperatures, but also receive more sunlight than vineyards on the valley floor, allowing the grapes to fully ripen while preserving their natural levels of acidity.
Pride Mountain Vineyards wines exhibit an intense fruit character but are balanced by good acidity and structure from this beautiful mountain terroir.
