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.


Schweiger is proud to remain independent and family owned. We are one of the distinguished multi-generation wineries with a father/son grower/winemaker team who have been working together for over twenty years.


It’s all about the fruit! When you get to work with great grapes, the most important thing is to not get in the way. Andy shares some of his winemaking expertise here.

Tradition & Future

Good winemaking is about being rooted in tradition while looking forward to new technologies available to the winemaker. Learn more about both century old and cutting edge technologies used at Schweiger.


Sustainability starts in the vineyard and continues into the cellar and into the home and workplace.
