Barnett Vineyards

Barnett Vineyards Founded in 1983, Barnett Vineyards is a family-owned winery located at 2,000' elevation atop Spring Mountain. Barnett Vineyards is known for producing limited quantities of three separate Spring Mountain designate Cabernet Sauvignons. The winery is nestled high above the morning fog-filled Napa Valley, providing the estate vineyards up to three hours more sunlight per day. This extra sunlight combined with cool evening temperatures, promotes slow even ripening of the grapes for deeper color and richer concentration of flavors.
