Angelo Pera Bio
From its inception in 1978, Mountain View Vintners has forged strong relationships with growers in order to produce reasonably-priced wines of superior quality. Our growers are located in regions that offer strong varietal character and exceptional value, including Monterey (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir), Amador (Zinfandel), Carneros (Pinot Noir), Lake County (Sauvignon Blanc), the Delta Region (Pinot Grigio) and the Central Coast (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Moscato). It is these relationships with growers, built through the years, which allow Mountain View to continue to offer high caliber wines that possess incredible consistency and superior value vintage after vintage. Mountain View wines have retained their handcrafted style and have become favorites among retailers, the hotel and restaurant trade, while also serving as featured wines in first class on major airlines. Our wines are equally at home for casual sipping on the porch or complementing a variety of foods at the dinner table.
“Some of the best values in the marketplace have come from Mountain View. Smart consumers should be buying these wines by the case…” – Robert Parker
