Wing Canyon Vineyard is a very small and remote bonded winery and steep hillside vineyard located near the top of Mt. Veeder. Access to the home and winery is a winding gravel road down a canyon, over a creek and through the redwoods.BRIEF HISTORY: Wing Canyon has played a major role in the evolution of Mt. Veeder as a prominent wine-producing region. From vineyards to carp farm, popular resort to a camp for the blind Wing Canyon has been home to valley pioneers and visitors for over a century. Captain Stalhan Wing produced the first Mt Veeder wine, which he entered into the Napa County Fair in 1864. He was also known for his carp, thousands of which he raised in man-made ponds amongst the vineyards.In 1983 we purchased 160 acres of mostly steep, wooded land above Wing Canyon on Mt. Veeder. By 1986 ten acres were cleared, terraced and planted with cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and chardonnay. The vineyard has always been tended within the guidelines of organic, sustainable farming. Cover crops such as mustard, rose and crimson clovers provide home for many beneficial insects while improving soil quality. The vines are dry farmed which reduces yields but produces intense concentrated wines.
