Mt Eden Estate – Santa Cruz Mts , California . USA
Mount Eden Vineyards is a small historic wine estate in the Santa Cruz Mountain Appellation. Founded in 1945, focusing on small lots of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Mount Eden’s lineage of estate bottled Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is the longest in California. Planted in austere, infertile Franciscan shale on a cool, exposed mountaintop, these low-yielding estate vineyards have consistently produced world-class wines for over a half-century. In 2007 Mount Eden acquired an additional estate in the Saratoga foothills,Domaine Eden. Mount Eden Vineyards also produce Chardonnay from Edna Valley.
Since 1981 Jeffrey Patterson has guided the winemaking and grape growing at Mount Eden. His emphasis is on wine growing rather than winemaking; and an obsession with gentleness and naturalness in the handling of the grapes and wines is his ongoing passion.
