Neal Family Vineyards winery is the culmination of a dream for owner and winegrower Mark Neal. Built on his home estate high atop Howell Mountain and completed in 2001, it represents a lifetime of love, labor, and commitment to a family business and passion.
The winery took nearly three years to complete and Mark oversaw every aspect of its design and implementation to ensure that the facility was constructed to his specifications. Built painstakingly into the side of the mountain, with barrel aging caves blasted horizontally into the hillside, the winery's design allows a natural flow between winery and cave. Mark chose a classic design for the winery, building it to fit with his home estate, but outfitting the facility with state-of-the-art winemaking tools. His vision and structural arrangement provides the winemaker with everything he needs to produce high quality wine right at his fingertips. The winery has a fully equipped tasting room and spacious dining room, complete with hand-made chandelier and cave-length views, and offers a magnificent yet down-to-earth experience. Whether you visit for a tour, tasting, or special event, you will find that each molding, fixture, and furnishing, hand-selected by Mark, supports the natural theme of the winery and lends an understated refinement to the entire winemaking and wine tasting experience.
Neal Family Vineyards was created with the intention of producing the best wines - most notably the best Cabernet Sauvignon - in the Napa Valley. Mark built the winery out of his desire to share his love of winegrowing and winemaking with wine enthusiasts the world over. Every aspect of the winery's construction began and ended with these two objectives.
Neal Family Vineyards is clearly an example of why the Napa Valley region has become so noted and respected for its vineyards and winemaking.
