When Bob Foley was winemaker at Pride Mountain Vineyard, he was known for big reds that combined the powerful, brier-y flavors of mountain berries with creamy, round texture and supple tannins. Today Pride Mountain Vineyard produces thirteen different wines annually from eight varieties grown on its 83-acres: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Syrah, Chardonnay and Viognier. The mountain's diversity of soils results in a staggering number of variables to consider, thus 40 separate blocks are 'sustainably' cultivated by a full time year round vineyard crew and vinified separately. However, the wines do certainly possess a unified mountain character, dark, resinous and brawny.
Sally Johnson is Pride Mountain Vineyard's current winemaker, working along side Romel Rivera, Steve Pride and consultant Paul Skinner.
