    Spring Mountain Vineyard was once actually three separate properties each with its own vineyard and winery: Spring Mountain Vineyards (Miravalle), Chateau Chevalier (Chevalier), and Draper Vineyards (La Perla).

    Spring Mountain now produces several different varieties on the three estates for its many wines. These include Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, and Petite Verdot, which are used in their single varietal releases and in their renowned Bordeaux blend.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
