Boz & Dominique Scaggs planted 2.2 acres to Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah & Counoise on their ranch at the northern crest of Mt Veeder in 1998. Situated on what was once a high valley lake; the soils are interspersed with gravely and Aiken loam deposits as you plunge the 300 vertical feet from top to bottom. One of the few remaining organic vineyards dedicated exclusively to these varietals in the Napa Valley, Scaggs was going to be a cornerstone to Newfound production when Boz transitioned control of the vineyard over to them in 2016. Except for a few rows of Counoise, the vineyard was lost in the tragic fire of October 2017.
Alert! Newfound’s rising star winemaker Matt Naumann should be on your radar!!
