Oakville Ranch is the original mountain vineyard of the Oakville sub-appellation that is located 1400 feet above the Silverado Trail. With a place of dramatic beauty and dedication to being California Certified Organic Farmers(CCOF), these vines themselves are tended with the highest attention to detail . Oakville Ranch farms its 330-acre property with orchards, vegetable gardens and bee hives – all cultivated in harmony with the untouched natural habitat which sustains native flora and fauna. Mark has his specific rows and clones within these vineyards. This makes Oakville Ranch Vineyards a viticultural treasure for Mark Herold or as we like to say, “A kid in a candy store!”
