ST. HELENA Trade group honors Spring Mountain
Spring Mountain Vineyard, a showplace winery and vineyards, has received the 2006 “Best of Napa Valley Tourism Award” from a trade group called the Global Network of Great Wine Capitals.
A tour of Spring Mountain Vineyards is more than a walk among stainless steel tanks. The tour includes the winery and its extensive wine caves, an antique horse barn, vineyards, exotic gardens and, finally, Miravalle, an elegant 1885 Victorian house where guests are guided through an evaluation of the estate’s wines. Miravalle was used as the home in the television series “Falcon Crest.”
The Global Network of Great Wine Capitals embraces international wine regions like Bordeaux, Porto, Cape Town, Bilbao-Rioja, Florence and Mendoza. The group works to encourage international winery tourism, as well as economic, academic and cultural exchanges between the famous capitals of wine.
