The Estate
Mt.Vernon winery has the capacity to destem and crush wine grapes at eight tons per hour and our holding tanks can store nearly 10,000 gallons of wine. The wine cave is currently storing nearly 200 barrels of French and American oak aged wine. The harvest of 2002 will reap approximately 35-40 tons of crushed grapes. 2002 is the year of the first harvest of estate grown Zinfandel of 6 acres. The estate has plenty of room to grow with approximately 31 total acres. More vineyards are planned for the future.
The Fabulous Duo
The fabulous duo, otherwise known as Jim and Ryan Taylor, will be assisted by their long time friends from Napa Valley. The style of the wine making is that of the majority of the Napa Valley wineries however, over 90% of the grapes will come from the Sierra Foothills.This is an exciting and busy time for Father and Son team Jim and Ryan. Along with the crush, you can find them down at the cave bottling their collection of delightful wines or in the vineyards tending to the grapevines.
