Located east of Napa, Mt. George Vineyard is the site of one of the first grape plantings in the valley in the 19th century.  The deep, gravelly soils are derived from volcanic rock and ash, providing depth and structure to Silverado’s wines.

Our Merlot vines are rooted in the foothills of an ancient volcano, Mt. George. These rocky slopes are in a climate sweet spot: close enough to the cool San Pablo Bay to give the wine aromas of rosemary and mint, warm enough to bring out flavors of blackberry and spice. We finish the wine in oak to add a hint of cocoa and a velvety texture.
