Winemaking is art, science, passion and a healthy dose of voodoo. At Montevina, we got our start in 1970 in the Sierra foothills and released our first wines in 1973. We quickly became well-known for our robust, full-flavored red wines, especially Zinfandel and Barbera, and proceeded to inspire a well-deserved revival of this region’s historic wine industry – Description from hburns

  • Montevina Zinfandel Skyland Ridge 2012


    Interesting spicy nose. In your face red fruit on the tip of the tongue. Very annoying bitterness on the back of the palate and in the aftertaste. Fairly light-bodied. Very light on tannin. Lots of acid tartness. Read More

    Wine review by EMark

  • Terra d'Oro wines are the more expensive, but their wines are generally really reasonable. The story behind the winery is that Walter Field's daughter married Cary Gott (the father of Joel Gott and the son of a winemaker himself), so Walter Field moved to the mountains to be near his daughter.  He bought the land, and Cary Gott started making th...

  • "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed.  Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women.  This morning, with...

  • Montevina Merlot 2010


    Smokey and pleasantly weedy on the nose under rather rich cocoa dusted raspberry fruit. Medium light bodied in the mouth and simple with easy going plummy fruit and some subtle cocoa and herb notes adding a little complexity along with a late arriving vanilla tone. Theres plenty of acid here and a little tannin to add some weight in the mouth bu... Read More

  • CB, I am resurrecting your conversation with the hope that you're still around.  I am familiar with most of the Amador Zinfandel labels you mentioned.  I would not be surprised if you could find some, if not all, of those in K.C.  I am going to make some more label suggestions so that, if you see any of these, you will have some knowledge.  All ...
