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.

#NEALVINEYARDS

A healthier planet for soil, plants, animals and mankind. Consumers are understanding ‘you are what you eat’. As consumers are into understanding even more today and getting beyond the greenwashing, they are standing up for what they want to eat and drink and how plants and animals are grown and cared for. Consumers have been but more involved than ever pivoting the market. Stand behind those Certified Organic and Regenerative Organic Certified farmers. Eat well, Stay well.📣 From @regenerativeorganic So WHY is it so important for regenerative to be defined by organic practices? Let’s consider:🌱Exposure to chemicals like glyphosate and atrazine, commonly used in industrial agriculture, are known endocrine disruptors with the potential to cause cancer in humans.👉 More than 250 million pounds of glyphosate are applied on crops each year, and the chemical has become ubiquitous in our food supply.🥕 One study found glyphosate residue in 39 out of 44 restaurant food samples.💦 And USGS surveys find over 70% of surface water, well water, soil, and rain samples are contaminated with glyphosate or its derivative, AMPA.🌱Studies show that exposure to pesticides may increase the risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and other chronic conditions that are more prevalent today than ever before.🌱Nitrate pollution in groundwater can cause restriction of oxygen to the bloodstream, leading to methemoglobinemia, or “blue baby” disease, and infants are most vulnerable.Let’s take toxic agrochemicals out of regenerative agriculture while uplifting farmers in their regenerative journey.#FarmLikeTheWorldDependsOnIt #ROC #certifiedorganic #vinyeards #napavalleywine

So WHY is it so important for regenerative to be defined by organic practices? Let’s consider:

🌱Exposure to chemicals like glyphosate and atrazine, commonly used in industrial agriculture, are known endocrine disruptors with the potential to cause cancer in humans.

👉 More than 250 million pounds of glyphosate are applied on crops each year, and the chemical has become ubiquitous in our food supply.
🥕 One study found glyphosate residue in 39 out of 44 restaurant food samples.
💦 And USGS surveys find over 70% of surface water, well water, soil, and rain samples are contaminated with glyphosate or its derivative, AMPA.

🌱Studies show that exposure to pesticides may increase the risk of dementia, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and other chronic conditions that are more prevalent today than ever before.

🌱Nitrate pollution in groundwater can cause restriction of oxygen to the bloodstream, leading to methemoglobinemia, or “blue baby” disease, and infants are most vulnerable.

Let’s take toxic agrochemicals out of regenerative agriculture while uplifting farmers in their regenerative journey.

📣 “To all my fellow biodynamic wine enthusiasts, here’s a tip on the true OGs in Napa Valley - Neal Family Vineyards! A certified organic winery practicing biodynamic farming, this family-owned vineyard produces small-batch, high-value wines that I wish were more accessible in our area!I acquired a few bottles a couple of years ago during a spontaneous visit to their winery. Although I had always heard of them, it wasn’t until March 2020, during a Napa trip that I finally tasted their wines. Today, we opened the 2015 Howell Mountain Estate CabernetSauvignon and it was nothing short of excellent.Upon opening, I poured a glass for myself and then decanted the wine for about an hour. 🍷 Tasting notes: Initially, it offered a beautiful blend of maraschino cherry, dark plum and a subtle savoriness that was embraced by robust tannins. After decanting, notes of black currant and tobacco became more prevalent, enhancing the savory notes of the wine. The wine’s structure is impressive, and it could easily age for another 10+ years with proper cellaring. I consistently recommend these bottles to clients who genuinely appreciate biodynamic wine. This winery is a gem, and their property is stunning!”🍇🍷 Thanks for visiting! @seasidesomm .....#WineExperience #NealVineyards #biodynamicwines #cabernetsauvignon #organicwines #nealfamilyvineyards
