Family owned and operated Schweiger Vineyards’ is located on Spring Mountain at an elevation of 2,000 feet above the fog line. Its rich volcanic soils and unique microclimates are particularly favorable for growing Cabernet Sauvignon.
Originally purchased in the 1960’s by Fred’s parents, the land did not grow grapes until the 1970’s when Fred discovered a perfect wine growing location. During the clearing process, old Redwood grape stakes spaced at 1×1 meter intervals were discovered, reconfirming the notion that the property had once been a prime viticulture area dating back to the late 1870’s.
