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

  • Symington is an iconic name in wine. For over four generations the Symington name has been synonymous with high quality port. If the name is unfamiliar their port houses are certainly not; Graham’s, Cockburn, Dow, and Warre are among the best producers in the world.

  • Mountain View Vintners Pinot Noir Central Coast 2013


    This has become my favorite pinot noir under $10. Light, classic pinot noir flavor profile. I have tasted pinots that cost twice as much that weren't half as enjoyable. Available at Your Dekalb Farmer's Market in Decatur for $8.99. Read More

  • I used to think I just didn't like wine, but after finding one made from my FAVORITE grape on earth, the scuppernong/muscadine that happened to be made near where I lived, I fell into a snuggly affair with that one, the Duplin Hatteras Red and decided to try a few more.  So far, the only other wine I've tried and liked enough to purchase again i...
