Our Three Ranches
The Winery Ranch is the oldest of our vineyards, containing the original vines planted by the Bernsteins.
The North Ranch was replanted in the 1990s using rootstock suited to Mount Veeder’s severe summer conditions.
The Rosenquist Ranch sits a lofty 1,500-1,600 feet above sea level.
Niki Williams, Winemaker
Niki Williams grew up in a central Illinois farming community, where she honed her land management skills from an early age. Niki also worked for a European travel company, through which she visited the top winemaking regions of France and Italy, discovering a deep love of wine along the way. When presented with the chance to return to school in 2008, Niki committed herself to her growing passion by earning a B.S. in Viticulture Enology at the University of California, Davis in order to pursue a career in winemaking.
Michael and Arlene Bernstein were the first to plan grapevines on Mount Veeder in 1970. When 59 of their original Cabernet cuttings took root and flourished, they knew they were on to something. Encouraged by their friend and Napa legend Robert Mondavi, the Bernsteins established the first winery on Mount Veeder.
