Mark’s dad, Jack Neal, loved to write to his wife, Athene.

And, we’ll love writing to you about all things happening at our winery, new releases, and life on our organic farm.

Our Winemaking Philosophy

Great wines come from great ingredients that only organic and biodynamic vineyards can produce. Our Howell Mountain and Rutherford Dust Cabernet Sauvignon are 100% single estate vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon small production wines that are simply exquisite. We believe in minimal intervention and that the incredible terroir should speak for itself.

Allowing wines to reflect the farming season is important to us. As we taste our 2017's, we are reminded of the farming year. ⁠⁠Excellent rainfall during the winter that replenished the soils and aquifers followed by a warm spring and summer that in turn gave us an early harvest. With these types of growing years, we experience wines that have round tannins and fruit forwardness that allows for approachability.⁠⁠Link in bio to learn more about our 2017 vintages 🍷⁠⁠#NealFamilyVineyards #NealFamilyWines #NealFamilyCalifornia #Wines #NealVineyards

This vibrant, expressive Cabernet Sauvignon has classic fresh fruit characteristics and follows through with classic cassis, mint, and earthy notes. Dried & fresh herbs are complemented with barrel spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and licorice. Our 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from our Howell Mountain Estate and Rutherford Dust Estate vineyards. ⁠⁠🍷 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 🍷⁠⁠⁠#napavalley #cabernetsauvignon #NapaCab #FamilyOwned #FamilyWinery #HowellMountain #Rutherford #organicwines #vineyard #winery

The Northern Pacific coast is blessed with a Mediterranean climate – a climate zone which only 3% of the world has (California, central Chile, southwestern Africa, Southwestern Australia, and the Mediterranean Basin). ⁠⁠🍇 A Mediterranean climate entails dry, long summers and mild, wet winters. The symbiotic relationship of the cool Pacific Ocean and the San Pablo Bay with large but narrow mountain ranges that flow north-south creates the ideal conditions. ⁠⁠Read our latest article on the Mediterranean climate and how it impacts the vines, the techniques used and most of all, how it affects the taste 🍷.
