About Mountain View Vintners:
This outstanding 350 acre property is nestled in the Sierra Foothills in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in Amador County. The original plantings date back to 1973, and grower Frank
Alviso employs both organic and dry farming techniques. Clockspring Vineyard is the largest planting of Zinfandel in the region, and it has been the source of many memorable wines for the past 25 years. The average elevation of the vineyard is 1600 feet, and it features rich, well drained, Sierra series (decomposed granitic) soils.
Mountain View Vintners began the association with the vineyard in 1982. Although the winery is best known for offering some of the finest varietal, appellation specific values from California in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet and Merlot, the Amador Zinfandel has emerged as our signature item. The initial release of 2003 was limited to 3200 cases, but the availability grew rapidly with the 2006 vintage to 12,000 cases.
