The Schweiger Vineyards Story
From Root to Glass
Our Estate Vineyards are the heart and driving force of everything we do, and are meticulously managed by Fred Schweiger and his team. Every vintage of Schweiger Cabernet is from the same small blocks 2000 feet above the Napa Valley, at the apex of the Spring Mountain District. As an Estate Winery, we provide a wine that is grown, produced, and bottled all on site under our own watchful eye to ensure that every drop meets our high standards.
Elevation, soil, and climate all play their part in producing our world class wines.
Mountain Top Differences
Grapes grown at the top of the slopes surrounding the Napa Valley present their own unique challenges, for instance terraces too steep for a tractor. However, those same steep terraces also provide the drainage and strain that result in thicker grape skins and produce the highest quality wines.
Long before sustainability became a household term, we were practicing it here at Schweiger, because that is what good farming is.
