The Yount Mill Vineyard has been owned by the Hoxsey family for 4 generations and is currently one of the largest continuous plantings in the Napa Valley. This vast site has been farmed organically in its entirety since 1987. Newfound currently sources Semillon from Yount Mill, which happens to be the last head trained, dry farmed section in this historic vineyard. The vines are on drought tolerant root stock in alluvial soil with 8 x 12 vine spacing. Yount Mill Semillon ripens quite early at low sugars giving way to light and refreshing flavors.
Alert! Newfound’s rising star winemaker Matt Naumann should be on your radar!!
