ABOUT VIADER

 

VIADER founded in 1986 by Delia Viader, a single mom, is recognized throughout the world for consistently producing high quality red wines. Located 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor north east of Helena on the rocky slopes of Howell Mountain, its vineyards replicate European design. Delia's vineyards on Howell Mountain are regarded as an ideal model for growing super-premium quality grapes. The original focus on Cabernet Franc as the main blending component, thought to be radical upon release, was a natural harkening back to Delia's European roots and her love of Cheval Blanc. Today Viader Vineyards is a thriving family business producing world-class wines from a magnificent, mature estate vineyard property complete with small bonded winery, underground caves, and a Hospitality Center which offers tours and tastings by appointment and a sophisticated wine and food pairing Culinary Program.
