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.
