Viader Vineyards & Winery
Pronounced via-"dare," VIADER is a leading Napa Valley first growth wine estate established in 1986 by Delia Viader, and recognized around the world for consistently producing high quality wines. The inaugural release was the 1989 VIADER Proprietary blend of 60%Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Cabernet Franc. Argentine-born Delia Viader came to the United States as a post-graduate student, holds a doctorate in Philosophy, and pursued advanced business studies at MIT.
The Viader Vineyards are located on the steep rocky slopes of Howell Mountain, 1200 feet above the Napa Valley floor, approximately 3 miles northeast of St. Helena. Our organically farmed hillside vineyards follow a unique and distinguishable design layout that maximize sun exposure; pioneering high density planting "non-terraced" and at a very steep angle allowing us to produce a signature blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc,"V" a Petit Verdot blend and a Cab/Syrah/Malbec blend a.k.a."Black Label" of utmost elegance and concentration of flavors. We also produce single varietal wines under our "DARE"by Viader label: 100% Cabernet Franc, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and 100% Tempranillo.
Guests are welcomed for tours/tastings 7 days a week from 10 am to 4 pm. Space is limited, please make a reservation to join us. The panoramic views of the Napa Valley mountain ranges while tasting our wines on the terrace are truly memorable.
Two of Delia's four children -Alan (Vineyard & Winemaking operations) and Janet (Sales & Marketing)- are involved in the family business, along with her daughter-in-law Mariela, a professionally trained chef, who coordinates food & wine pairing experiences for winery guests upon prior reservation.
