History of the Pride Mountain Winery
Founded in 1990, the Pride Mountain Winery is recognized globally as one of the greatest wine estates. It joins just 22 other California wineries for this notable distinction. Appearing on lists such as the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 WInes of the World, Pride blends are unique and distinct. From a Pride Mountain Merlot to a Pride Cabernet Sauvignon, several of these wines have been served at the White House on more than 30 different occasions in the last two decades. These highly lauded wines are just one draw of this exceptional Napa Valley winery, however. The gorgeous mountain views and peaceful estate are other serious draws. Yet, the products created by Pride Mountain Winery’s divine estate-grown grapes deserve a place in any serious collector’s cellar.

When planning your visit to this premier winery in St. Helena, be sure to call ahead and make an appointment. Summer and fall weekends particularly can book well in advance.
