ADAMVS
Among the great hillside and mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, Howell Mountain is legendary for the profound structure and sophistication of its wines. Located on these storied slopes, ADAMVS is dedicated to crafting timeless mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignons, while honoring this renowned terroir.

Story
Denise and Stephen Adams discovered the idyllic ADAMVS property in 2008. In its mosaic of five vineyard sites, iron-rich red soils, ideal elevations and diversity of vineyard exposures, they saw the perfect convergence of geology and geography. To realize the estate’s promise, and their goal of establishing a new benchmark for excellence on Howell Mountain, they gathered together a team that includes viticulturist Michael Wolf, winemaker Alberto Bianchi, and consulting winemaker Philippe Melka.
Vineyards

Grown on the red soil slopes of our hillside estate, our wines are literally borne from our red earth.  Like nature, they are expressions of many elements working in harmony.

To realize the complexity that defines the finest Cabernet Sauvignons, our estate is a mosaic of five vineyard sites, ranging in elevation from 1,500 to 2,000 feet. Of our 28-planted acres, 25 are Cabernet Sauvignon, with nine hand-selected clones spread out over an array of exposures and elevations.

Legendary viticulturist Michael Wolf, stewards every vineyard block to accentuate its strengths. Though we embrace innovation, we also believe that there is no substitute for experience and the human touch. Farmed with integrity and passion, every one of our organic and biodynamic-certified vines is hand-tended by our vineyard team a minimum of seven times a season.

Winemaking

From its tapestry of soils and exposures that range from the sculpted heights of Howell Mountain to the ‘secret garden’ forests below, ADAMVS is an enclave of rustic beauty.

To respect the diversity of the land, and to achieve its full potential to create wines of unparalleled sophistication, ADAMVS is cultivated and certified both organic and biodynamic.

Practiced in some of the world’s most revered vineyards, biodynamics is a meticulous approach to farming that embraces the rhythms and cycles of nature. Offering a holistic approach, it treats the estate as an integrated farm, replenishing the soils, ensuring life, vitality and health. This artisan method of farming extends beyond the soils, vines, orchards and hives of ADAMVS to every aspect of the business, ensuring a vibrant ecosystem in harmony with its community and environment.
