ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Located atop Mount Veeder (a dormant volcano some some 750 metres above sea levl) in Napa Valley, the Mayacamas story began in 1889. John Henry Fisher planted vines on the property, only to be put out of business by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Following the abolition of prohibition, Jack Taylor purchased the estate, renamed it Mayacamas (the Native American word for property) and replanted vines once more. In the late 1960s, the estate was sold to Bob Travers, who truly brought this vineyard to prominence.
