Moss Creek meanders through the Moskowite family vineyards and stone winery located in the rolling hills of the eastern Napa Valley. Our family has been farming for over 80 years, with 145 acres of vineyards planted in 1974. Today, we retain a select portion of the grapes from each harvest to create our limited production estate wines.

The Moskowite family vineyards lie in Capell Valley, a small mountain valley located in the Napa Valley hills directly east of Oakville. Nestled against Atlas Peak, the vineyard ranges in elevation from 835 to 900 feet. Vineyard plantings include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel. The vineyards primarily source grapes to several renowned Napa Valley wineries; including Beringer, Raymond, Rombauer and Saddleback Cellars.

These 25 year old vineyards are planted in a well drained, loam soil that is riddled with rock and obsidian. The vineyard maturity, soil types and estate farming practices combine to produce exceptional low yielding fruit. The cooler climate provided by the mountain elevation brings on a longer growing season. Therefore, the grapes have an extended hang time on the vine, allowing the sugars to ripen slowly prior to harvest. This produces an outstanding mature fruit, adding character and rich complexity to Moss Creek wines.
