Pronounced via-"dare," VIADER is a leading Napa Valley first growth wine estate established in 1986 by Delia Viader, and recognized around the world for consistently producing high quality wines. The inaugural release was the 1989 VIADER Proprietary blend of 60%Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Cabernet Franc. Argentine-born Delia Viader came to the United States as a post-graduate student, holds a doctorate in Philosophy, and pursued advanced business studies at MIT.
The VIADER Vineyards are located on the steep rocky slopes of Howell Mountain, 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor, approximately 3 miles northeast of St. Helena. Our organically farmed hillside vineyards follow a unique and distinguishable design layout that maximize sun exposure; pioneering high density planting "non-terraced" and at a very steep angle allowing us to produce our signature VIADER blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, in addition to "V" a Petit Verdot blend, and the "Black Label," a Cab/Syrah/Malbec blend of utmost elegance and concentration of flavors. We also produce single varietal wines under our DARE by Viader label: 100% Cabernet Franc, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Malbec, 100% Tempranillo and a dry rose of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Guests are welcomed for tours/tastings 7 days a week from 10am to 4:30pm. Space is limited; please make a reservation to join us. The panoramic views of the Napa Valley mountain ranges while tasting our mountain-grown wines on the enchanting terrace are truly memorable.
Two of Delia's four children — Alan (Vineyard & Winemaking operations) and Janet (Sales & Marketing) — are involved in the family business, along with her daughter-in-law Mariela, a professionally trained chef, who coordinates food & wine pairing experiences for winery guests upon prior reservation.
From our family to yours, Salud!
When you visit the VIADER Tasting Room, it is like you are visiting our home. The Viader family's residence, vineyards, caves, and Tasting Room are all on the VIADER estate.
The Tasting Room is usually run by one person during the weekdays, either our manager Cante, Connie, John or a member of the Viader family.
Tastings take about an hour and are by appointment only starting at 10am through 4pm. We can comfortably accommodate up to 12 people at one time (larger groups can request a private tasting), with apt outdoor patio or indoor seating. Guests can enjoy the view of the vineyards, the Mayacamas Mtns, and the Valley floor while they sip our wines at a leisurely pace.
Flight of 4-5 wines, current releases, are offered for tasting at $45/person, which is waived with a minimum wine purchase. We also offer a Reserve Library tasting for $60/person which includes older vintages of our signature VIADER & "V" blends.
