Explore Howell Mountain Wineries in 2 Days

by WINECOUNTRY STAFF on SEPTEMBER 28, 2015

Rising over 2,000 feet above the floor of the Napa Valley, Howell Mountain has become a legend in the wine world. It’s porous, rocky, iron rich soil lends itself to the making of spicy, bold, fine red wines. Additionally, microclimates abound across the hillsides allowing for a variety of grapes to grow. The vineyards tend to be smaller, more intimate than their cousins found on the valley floor. A two-day tour of the mountain allows wine enthusiasts to visit, taste the wines and view some of the most beautiful vineyards in the region.
