Newton Vineyard was one of the first wineries on Spring Mountain, a rugged yet serene appellation located west of St. Helena on the eastern flank of the Mayacamas range. Newton Vineyard was established by Dr. Su Hua and Peter Newton, whose trailblazing vision transformed the hillside into a 490 acre estate with 73 acres of planted vines.
Newton’s approach to winemaking is meticulous, using techniques based on an old-world style including natural fermentation and bottling without filtration. The grapes are handled with care, hand-picked in small lots and transferred to the cellar for gentle pressing. The winery is custom-designed to allow lots from 70 distinct parcels on the property to ferment separately, affording the winemaker an abundance of options when constructing final blends. Barrel aging takes place in a cave built into the mountain directly beneath the winery and its iconic gardens.
We invite you to visit Newton Vineyard and discover this jewel atop Spring Mountain in St. Helena.
All of our distinct guest experiences are by appointment only. Please expect to spend approximately 90 minutes with us.
