Haber Family Vineyards produces small lots of 100% Napa Valley Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and small lots of barrel aged Chardonnay.
Rising east of St. Helena, Howell Mountain is Napa Valley’s first recognized sub-appellation. Renowned for Cabernet Sauvignon, its vineyards range from 1400 to 2200 feet in altitude. This unique area consist of two main soil types key in defining the character of a Howell Mountain wine. The first soil consists of decompsed volcanic ash, called “tufa”, and the second is red clay that is high in iron. Because both soil types are nutrient poor, the vines are stressed and can only develop small berries that produce intense wines of dark purple color. Days are a bit cooler than on the valley below, but because the vineyards sit above the fog that often blankets the valley floor, they enjoy long, mild growing days with slightly warmer nights. Our vineyard sits between 1650 and 1550 feet (top to bottom) on a West-facing slope with a view across the valley to both Spring and Diamond Mountains.
