    Vinoce, California
    Brian and Lori Nuss wanted to produce a wine from their vineyards that reflected its distinctive Mt. Veeder Appellation. Mt. Veeder sits high above the Napa Valley, affording not only stunning views but a longer and cooler growing season above the morning fog. Well drained rocky, volcanic soils and low nutrient force the vines to work harder to survive, creating smaller berries that increase extraction and intensity, not usually found in valley floor wines.

    A self taught viticulturist and winemaker, Brian planted their vineyards over 12 years ago, and with the help from the local winemakers learned to work with the harsh environment to produce quality grapes. Wanting to fulfill their dreams of making their own wine, the name Vinoce was created, and a new era of small family owned winemakers was born.

    Meaning of Vinoce: (vin-o-chay) The name is a play on the winemaker's name and his German-Italian heritage. Nuss means "nut" in German. Noce is "nut" in Italian. Hence Vinoce means "wine nut."

    Centered at the peak for which it is named, Mount Veeder is Napa’s largest sub-AVA. But even though the entire appellation spreads over 16,000 acres, vineyards cover a mere 1,000. Scattered among Douglas firs and bristlecone pines, Mount Veeder vineyards extend south from the upper elevations of the Mayacamas Mountains—the highest point at 2,400 feet—to the border of the Carneros region. Less than 25 wineries produce wine from Mount Veeder fruit.

    Winemaking began early in this appellation. In 1864, Captain Stelham Wing presented the first Mount Veeder wine to the Napa County Fair; it came from today’s Wing Canyon Vineyard. Prohibition, of course, halted winemaking and viticulture wasn’t revitalized until the founding of Mayacamas Vineyards in 1951 and Bernstein Vineyards in 1964.

    The Bernstein Vineyards was actually home to the first Petit Verdot in California, planted in 1975. Today most of the Petit Verdot in Napa Valley originates from this vineyard.

    Rocky volcanic clay and ancient seabed matter dominate Mount Veeder soils—perfect for Bordeaux varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot enjoy spectacular success. These varieties produce wines rich in brambly blackberry and black cherry fruit with herbal and floral aromatics. Structures are moderate to assertive and wines have great staying power.

    Chardonnay from Mount Veeder is lush, full and balanced mineral and fresh citrus flavors.

    One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
