Linda Falls Vineyard
This 42-acre site on Howell Mountain has only 7 acres of vineyard and a significant wildland area. No-till practices and organic growing methods are used.
"In 2002, we planted cabernet sauvignon vines on Howell Mountain near the gateway to the picturesque Linda Falls Preserve. Stretching above the fog at an average elevation of 1,500 feet, this area is known for well-drained, volcanic soils and a cooler climate which results in longer hang time. The vines are planted in narrow rows, deliberately positioned to capture the strongest rays of the summer sun. As the fruit matures, the dense spacing and abundant sunshine leads to a low yield of smaller berries with thick, deeply-hued skins. This picturesque, hilly vineyard is surrounded by pine trees, deer, and bears; a truly special slice of Napa Valley."
This 101-acre site borders Conn Creek and is the site of a large revegetation project. Several acres of invasive, non-native eucalyptus were removed and treated, and a variety of native oaks and other plants were installed. The native oaks provide habitat for wildlife, most particularly birds. In 2007, Heitz Wine Cellars was given a Fish Friendly Farming award recognizing Outstanding Efforts in Stream Habitat Improvement and Restoration.
