Perched at 1,200 feet elevation with sedimentary clay and volcanic soils, Meadowcroft’s Mount Veeder Vineyard has extremely steep slopes and is typically above the fog line. This vineyard is known for producing vines with tiny berries with intense flavor concentration and soft tannins. The Mount Veeder AVA is the only hillside appellation in Napa Valley that adjoins the cool, bayside Carneros benefiting from the cool influence of San Pablo Bay.
In 1999, Tom Meadowcroft bought this Mount Veeder Vineyard in Napa. It took four years to bring the vineyard up to his standard. The vineyard now has produced numbers award winning vintages for Meadowcroft including the 2005 Mount Veeder Estate Cabernet Sauvignon which was named in the Top 100 Cellar Selections by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
