About the Winery
Nestled atop the Mayacamas Mountains, straddling the renowned wine regions of both Sonoma and Napa counties, resides the distinguished Pride Mountain Vineyards. It boasts an astounding 235-acre estate. This Los Angeles vineyard is a testament to the prowess of vine cultivation in the verdant lands of Northern California.

In the hands of the Pride family since 1991, the vineyard leans into its mountaintop terroir to produce wine of superior quality. Not only does it bask in the California sunshine, but the vineyard also benefits from cool marine air blowing in from the nearby Pacific Ocean, creating a perfect environment for cultivating grapes.
At 2,100 feet above the sea level, the vineyard is committed to sustainable farming practices. They employ 'dry farming' techniques, conserving water by relying solely on the groundwater and rainfall.
