HAVEN STEAD WINERY

The vineyards are hidden in mountains west of Nevada City, on a steep and remote hillside at the end of a winding road. They are mountain vineyards rising 2200' feet above sea level and terraced into 50-million-year-old blue clay soils and limestone. The rows curve over the unmarked hill above the steep canyons of South Yuba River. The river is visible 1000' below, where Rush Creek flows into the old crossing at Jones Bar. Making great wine is markedly different from other accomplishments. It is an art that has been compared to poetry and painting. The essentials of winemaking can be mastered with simple learning, but the spirit of great wine cannot be taught.
