Mark Neal worked for his father's business since its inception and in 1994, shortly after Jack's passing, he assumed the position of President and Owner of Jack Neal & Son (JNS), Inc. JNS started implementing organic farming practices in 1984 and, today, the company farms over 85% of the vineyards under its management - most of which are planted on the hillsides of Napa Valley - organically. For four decades, it has been the Neal Family's mission to grow the highest quality wine grapes, which produce the ultra-premium wines world renowned to the Napa Valley. Mark Neal has diligently worked to complete the family dream of building a winery. He built Neal Family Vineyards with the intention of producing wines that exemplify the quality of the winegrapes grown by his family for many years. Wines produced by the Neal Family Vineyards winery are a tribute to his father, who taught Mark the importance of family and friends, a true appreciation of the vineyards and the winegrowing process, and the love of great food paired with exceptional wine.

  • Our last day was supposed to be a half day with us getting on the road by lunchtime.  We had an appointment first to meet with Mark Neal at his home/winery on Howell Mountain.  It's a very curvy drive with some spectacular views down onto Napa Valley.  He's up near Ladera.  It's a beautiful property and Mark was just finishing up with another co...

  • Neal Family Cabernet la Costa Wine Co 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Super ripe cab nose that's too inviting to pass up! This is a great time for this wine. I think it will continue to evolve and age nicely for some time, but at the 9 year mark, it's spectacular now! Awesome cab!- Tasted at winery with Mark Neal 4/23/10 Read More

  • Neal Family Vineyards Petite Sirah Rutherford Rutherford Dust 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Outstanding petite sirah! It's deep, dense and dark but not jarringly inky or alcoholic as some can be. It's not a kick in the mouth, but a wonderfully concentrated and flavorful wine.- Tasted at winery with Mark Neal 4/23/10 Read More
