Master Vigneron Academy
Demonstrating innovation and leadership, the Lake County Master Vigneron Academy is the only program of its kind in the US.
Lake County growers are leaders in sustainability, focused on quality, industry-leading viticultural practices, and widespread vineyard certification.
“The Lake County Eruption: The Region's Wines Rumble with Intensity and Elegance”
“These are true ‘mountain’ vineyards,” writes Randy Caparoso. “Nearly all of Lake County's vineyards are planted 1,330-3,000 feet above sea level and yield some of the most intense, singing, and elegantly structured wines in the New World, the Old World, or any world.”
