MOUNTAIN VIEW WINERY
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 Vintners is committed to the pursuit of ecologically sound practices whenever and wherever possible in the production process of premium quality varietal wines. Much of the technology required is still in the development stages, but we will adapt to Carbon Dioxide emission regulations as they are implemented.
Our Amador County Zinfandel grower, Clockspring Vineyards, is a Certified California Organic Farmer since 1994, and the resultant wine is produced exclusively from organic fruit. In addition, the vineyard
Several of our principal growers in Monterey and the Central Coast have adopted sustainable farming methods and are happy to report environmentally sensitive results along with quality and economic benefits from the changes to "let the 'green' soil do its job naturally" have been realized. These methods revolve around minimal use of non-organic fertilizer and avoidance of pesticides and herbicides. Sulfite levels in the wines are kept to the minimum allowable to maintain wine quality in the commercial circles where the Mountain View Vintners wines are distributed nationally and internationally.
Our packaging is also “green” oriented as all glass bottles are produced with 75% recycled glass and our cases are made from 85% post-consumer recycled paper. Our label printer, Galaxy Press, was the first printer in Northern California to achieve “green” certification and all labels are made from water based products so that they are biodegradable.
--From our family to yours, please enjoy our wines responsibly.--
