The Napa Valley wineries is a favorite quick getaway for California residents. The PCIN TV crew visited in March. We were delighted to meet Lindsay McArdle at Spring Mountain Vineyard. It’s a gorgeous property and delicious wine.
The best way to do a tour is in their private tasting room (like you’ll see in this video lifestyle story). It’s relaxing and completely enjoyable. You have plenty of time to ask questions, learn, and sip on some excellent signature wines.
Be sure to leave room in the day to travel up the mountain by car to the beautiful vistas.

Spring Mountain Vineyard, Napa CA
Here’s some more information from their website.
Spring Mountain Vineyard is an 845 acre estate on the eastern slopes and lower half of Spring Mountain. It extends from 400 feet above sea level to about 1450 feet at the top of the property. There are about 135 different vineyard blocks scattered over the estate totaling 226 acres. Each has a different elevation, soil, and exposure to the elements and each block produces something unique. This great diversity of steep hillside plantings is the source of consistent, powerful, and distinctive red wines.
Four adjoining properties on Spring Mountain were acquired, each featuring a vineyard and a winery. They were Spring Mountain Vineyards (Miravalle) 257 acres, Chateau Chevalier 120 acres, Streblow Vineyards (Alba) 33 acres, and Draper Vineyards (La Perla) 435 acres.
These wine properties were first developed in the late 19th Century and, though boundaries and names had changed in the intervening years, much of what was done a century earlier remains evident today.
