About Schweiger Vineyards  

At 2,000 feet above the valley floor, Schweiger Vineyards sits on Spring Mountain with nearby neighborsPride Mountain Vineyards, Paloma, Cain and Newton among others.

 

In 1960, current winemaker Andrew Schweiger's grandparents, Tony and Theresa Schweiger, purchased 53 acres on Spring Mountain.  In the 1980s, the Schweiger's estate vineyards were producing beautiful mountain fruit.  For many years, the Schweiger family sold their fruit to Cafaro Cellars, ZD, Newton and Stags Leap Winery

  

In 1994, Schweiger Vineyards became a bonded winery and the family began bottling wine under their own label, though they continued to sell most of their grapes to the contracted wineries.  Andrew Schweiger, who was down the street at Cain (and previously with Joseph Phelps,Trefethen, ZD, Chateau St. Jean) at the time, began working a second job, with his family, as the winemaker at Schweiger.

Schweiger: Taming a Stallion

Posted: November 15th, 2000 - James Laube: http://www.schweigervineyards.com/downloads/press_wine_spectator111500.pdf  

 

"There's a rustic, dusty earth and wild berry character in the sturdy 1997 Schweiger Cabernet Sauvignon (93 points, $45).  And it has a tannic structure that bodes well for cellaring.  Once you set foot on the rugged terrain of this Spring Mountain vineyard, it's easy to see how the soil and climate nourish the grapes that produce this rather immense, intensely flavored wine.

 

Spring Mountain has a well-deserved reputation for hearty, tannic reds.  But some of the newer versions coming from this appellation, west of St. Helena in Napa Valley, show a sense of refinement.  It's as if the winemakers are succeeding in their efforts to rein in a wild stallion."

The 2008 vintage is our fifteenth release of Chardonnay.

We strive to strike a balance between fruitiness and complexity in our wines, Our goal is to always express the fruit of our vineyard first; why work hard in the vineyard only to mask the true beauty with cellar practices.  Once harvested, we selectively use the tools we have at our disposal as winemakers to shape and complement the wine; surlies aging, and French oak cooperage, both new and old.
 
Our 2008 Chardonnay is a full bodied wine with true varietal characteristics, hints of pear, kiwi, citrus, and apricots, and delicate undertones of oak and tropical fruits.  The body of the wine is rich and supple, filling the mouth with flavors.  The true nature of Spring Mountain Chardonnay comes through in the mineral character, more reminiscent of a classic Mersault than your typical California Chardonnay.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2007 vintage):
"Simple and direct, with jammy flavors of pineapples and buttered popcorn. Will satisfy your basic Chardonnay sweet tooth."  — S.H.  (12/15/2009)
