Cold Springs Vineyard
Undoubtedly one of the hidden gems on Howell Mountain, the 23-acre Cold Springs Vineyard is the realization of owner Marc Mondavi’s dream to strike out on his own. Teaming up with his longtime friend and revered vineyard manager, Jim Barbour, they have created an outstanding mountain vineyard site.
Located above the fog line with a southwest exposure, the rocky topsoil is made up of red and brown loam with pockets of iron-rich volcanic ash, limestone and rhyolite. This intricate mixture of soils produces Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with exquisite complexity and flavor.
