In 1978, San Francisco entrepreneur Kevin Shannon founded Mountain View as one of California's first negociant wineries. The negociant, a concept first popularized in the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions of France, blends, ages and bottles a unique brand from its own managed and selected outsourced vineyards. From its inception, Mountain View Winery has forged strong relationships with growers in order to produce reasonably priced wines of superior quality. Our growers are located in regions that offer strong varietal character and exceptional value, including Monterey, Amador, Carneros, Lake County and the Central Coast. Over thirty years later, Mountain View wines continue to offer some of the finest California values on the market. Our premium quality, moderately priced wines are favored by premium wine retailers and, in particular, the hotel and restaurant trade. Mountain View wines have built a reputation as a preferred on-premise California by-the-glass product in many regions of the country. – Description from dvoristanac

  • We will be visiting Sonoma County in a few weeks for a little R&R and I wanted to get some ideas of wineries to visit.  This is our first visit to Sonoma so we are a blank slate and have to rely on the typical visitor’s books or our guide book, which is pretty old.  So any recommendations are appreciated, regardless of whether they are big or sm...

  • Hi, I am looking to buy birth year bottles for my girls (born in '95 and '97).  Which region and varietal can hold up for 21 years before popping the cork?  I'm guessing French wines will be the most common response, but my knowledge to this region is pretty limited (primarily drink CA, WA, and Italian wines).  Also not looking to break the bank...
