History & Philosophy
Brian and Lori Nuss have made their home in the Mt. Veeder Appellation for over 20 years. Brian and Lori's love for fine wine commmenced with the planting of grapes in the mountainous terrain 12 years ago. Cultivating and caring for their grapes has been a passion for the couple.
Brian and Lori Nuss wanted to produce a wine from their vineyards that reflected its distinctive Mt. Veeder Appellation. Mt. Veeder sits high above the Napa Valley, affording not only stunning views but a longer and cooler growing season above the morning fog. Well drained rocky, volcanic soils and low nutrient force the vines to work harder to survive, creating smaller berries that increase extraction and intensity, not usually found in valley floor wines.
