As the most widely grown and highly acclaimed varietal in the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon is certainly deserving of the attention it receives. At Clif Family, we like to refer to our Howell Mountain Cabernet as the King of the Mountain. As cyclists and adventure seekers, this title refers to the best climber in a cycling road race. Our parallel in winemaking is the best grapes for our winemaking program. And few could argue that Howell Mountain is the home to some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the Napa Valley.
The Howell Mountain Appellation is one of California’s most sought after, ultra premium wine growing regions. Located in the mountains east of St. Helena, this Napa Valley appellation consists of 14,000 gross acres of mountain slope ranging in elevation from 1,600-2,300 feet above sea level (most of the acres are not plantable).
A main source of pride for Amizetta Estate Winery, beyond the world class, award-winning wines, is their commitment to sustainable practices throughout the property. The Amizetta team employs multiple earth-friendly resources in the effort of making the best product and preserving the environment for future generations!
