How to taste our Spring Mountain Wines | Schweiger Vineyards, St Helena

Visit Us

Come experience the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of Schweiger Vineyards & Winery located 2,000 feet above the Napa Valley, at the top of the Spring Mountain District in St Helena. Receive a warm welcome by our family and staff who are excited to share their knowledge in a private setting. The view will leave you breathless while you savor our small-production wines in our beautiful tasting room, or weather permitting – and it usually is – on the balcony or terrace. If you’d like, we can pair your tasting with artisan cheese and charcuterie.  We are baby and dog friendly – just make sure to bring a leash and give us a heads up so that we can plan appropriately.

Unforgettable...

During your ESTATE TASTING EXPERIENCE we will present to you five of our current releases, which include tropical Sauvignon Blanc from a family friend’s vineyard in Sonoma, followed by a lineup of our Spring Mountain Estate Collection such as our mineralistic Chardonnay, classic Merlot, and the pride of Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon.  We may also introduce you to some lesser known varietals, such as Cabernet Franc or Malbec, then finish up with our crown jewel, Dedication.  This Bordeaux style blend changes every year to reflect Andy’s expression of the best wine our vineyard can make.

If you like to end things on a sweeter note, however, we have two port-style wines, Iteration, made from our Cabernet, and Napuro, made from our Chardonnay.  We try to tailor each guest’s experience to their palate preferences.

Estate Tastings are fifty dollars (Free for Club Members), by appointment only from 10:00am – 3:30pm. Guests should estimate approximately 75 minutes for their tasting experience.

Upgrade to our LIBRARY TASTING in advance, or on the spot!  It is not every day that you are able to access such deep history of a winery, showcasing the same vineyard and winemaker throughout.  Get a glimpse of how beautifully our wines age while sampling cellar gems such as the 2000 Dedication (our innaugural vintage), 2004 Merlot, 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, and Port II.*

Library Tastings are $75 ($50 for Club Members), Monday-Friday, by appointment only from 10:00am – 3:30pm. Guests should estimate approximately one hour for their tasting experience.

*Note, all wines subject to availability.
