An Elevated Experience


In a valley defined by agricultural expression, Bordeaux varietals thrive as Mother Nature creates a sense of place, capturing quality and character from vineyard to bottle. For Newton Vineyard, craftsmanship, precision, and sustainability play an integral role in showcasing Napa Valley’s extraordinary terroir. Fostering aromatics, mouthfeel, and texture, passion is the catapult for a vision dedicated to excellence.

An English lover of wine and nature, Peter Newton founded Newton Vineyard in 1977 atop Spring Mountain. With initial plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Newton Vineyard pioneered the Burgundian ‘unfiltered’ approach to winemaking, crafting natural wines full of expression and vitality. “Only 11% of the acreage proved plantable,” said Peter Newton, founder of Newton Vineyard. “The rest was too mountainous. There were some of the steepest slopes planted to vine in California. It was quite a project.”

A project defined by passion and ingenuity, Newton’s success with its Cabernet-driven flagship wine, The Puzzle, led to an expansion of its wine portfolio. In 2016, Newton Vineyard released their single vineyard series. Introducing single vineyard Estate Cabernets from Spring Mountain, Mount Veeder, and Yountville AVA’s, Newton Vineyard illustrates the diversity between elevation, soil type, and location.

“Our single vineyard wines embody the expression of singularities, one particular note, a detail, the unicity of the different vineyards at the highest possible qualitative level. In fact, it’s work of utmost precision,” said winemaker Andrew Holve.

The Spring Mountain estate (before the fires of 2020) contained 71 vineyard blocks nestled into the terrain resulting in micro terroirs with an elevation of 500-1600 feet. Composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, the Spring Mountain Cabernet is full-bodied with a mocha, red currant, and asphalt flavor profile.

The Mount Veeder estate is located in the southernmost region of the Mayacamas Mountains. With an Elevation of 800 to 1040 feet, the 100% Cabernet has aromas of cassis, cedar wood, and musk, displaying structure and complexity.

The Yountville estate rests on one of the few hillside vineyards in Yountville on the lower slopes and foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. The 100% Cabernet is full-bodied with velvety tannins at an altitude of 150 and 350 feet.

A true representation of place, the single vineyard Cabernet series reveals each individual estate’s unique character and depth. Highlighting the passion behind the name, each Cabernet dives deeper into Newton Vineyard’s mountain credentials elevating the Cabernet experience.
