Terra Valentine takes winemaking to a new level-about 2,100 feet above the Napa Valley. It is a winery that brings together a state-of-the-art fermentation system with the uncovered beauty of an artisan-constructed building-a colorful and well-hidden treasure of Spring Mountain history.

Visitors to the Terra Valentine Winery know they've arrived in an extraordinary place even before setting foot inside. A Greco-Romanesque statue greets them from his perch above the enormous copper-plated double door that serves as the winery entrance. The doors' metal knobs are designed to look like large fish, graciously arching their backs into convenient handles.

Completed in 1970, the two-story, 17,000-square-foot winery is made of native stone and concrete. While the uniquely designed winery was in active use until the early 1980s, the reclusive nature of previous owner Fred Aves kept its existence largely secret.

In 1999, Angus and Margaret Wurtele discovered the Spring Mountain gem, purchased the winery and surrounding vineyard and began refurbishments. State-of-the-art fermentation equipment and modern electricity and plumbing were added, while the winery's stained glass, carved wood and other one-of-a-kind design features were preserved. Angus and Margaret Wurtele appreciate the vitality of their young company, mentoring the staff at Terra Valentine to succeed at the challenges of mountain winemaking.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
