About The Winery:

Newton was founded in 1977 by English businessman Peter Newton and his Chinese wife Su Hua. Peter Newton was already renowned as a pioneer of winemaking in the Napa Valley, having founded the Sterling Winery near Calistoga in the 1960s. The Newtons transformed one square mile of rolling hillside in Spring Mountain into one of the Napa Valley’s most prestigious estates, whose wines have graced the official dinners of several US presidents.

The Newton estate encompasses 170 acres of prime Napa Valley terroir, distributed over four separate, wholly owned vineyards: Spring Mountain, Yountville, Mount Veeder and Carneros.

Newton is renowned for producing wines that are uniquely characterful expressions of varietals emblematic of the Napa Valley, notably Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Working patiently with nature, we are committed to precision viticulture and winemaking techniques yielding wines that are acclaimed for their balance, harmony and full, abundant flavors.

Notes From The Winemaker:

The 2014 Mount Veeder was a selection of blocks 203, 209, 212, 231, 240 with an average vine age of 17 years. Once harvested, the grapes were hand-sorted to inspect individual berries. The must was then fermented in separate lots and barrel aged for 12 months before being blended and returned to barrel for further maturation. 950 cases produced.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - James Suckling:                                                                                  Unique aromas of wet earth, mushrooms, dark fruits and flowers follow through to a full body, rich and chewy tannins and a powerful finish. This is muscular yet polished showing depth and length. Give it until 2020 to show you what it really has.

94+ Points - Wilfred Wong of                                                             Where does Mount Veeder rank amongst the wine cognoscenti for great Cabernet Sauvignon. I would have to guess this famed AVA gets passed over for more famous growing regions in the Napa Valley. The 2014 Newton Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon is majestic. TASTING NOTES: This wine is well-built and persistent with an accent on elegance. Its aromas and flavors of black fruits run long and deep. Pair with a thick Porterhouse steak.
