Mayacamas Vineyards Napa Valley Mt. Veeder Sauvignon Blanc 2010
In Sanskrit “Maya” was according to the ancient sages of India, the dreamlike world. The estate at Mayacamas Vineyards located on Mt Veeder in the Mayacamas mountain range, is truly dreamlike for winegrowing. This is the coolest of the five mountain AVAs in Napa Valley, with rocky, volcanic, and clay soils. Originally used as a pickle factory, it was later constructed as a winery in 1889. Mayacamas has gone through the test of time: 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Prohibition, and making of the 1995 film “A Walk in the Clouds”. Mayacamas continues to make authentic, age worthy wines with old world techniques.
