ANGWIN REAL ESTATE
A small town situated near the summit of Howell Mountain, known for impressive views and incredible wine.
WELCOME TO ANGWIN
Nestled high above the Napa Valley fog near the summit of Howell Mountain, the small town of Angwin has a magical quality that finds expression in its world-famous wine. Angwin’s residents enjoy the peace and tranquility of true Napa Valley seclusion, with commanding panoramic views over the vineyards rising up the hills and mountains below.
Angwin is bisected by a crossroads, with the Pacific Union College and a small shopping center sitting on either side of it. While this community offers a splendid sense of above-it-all isolation, there is no shortage of wineries, with Angwin’s elevated appellation producing some of the most remarkably flavorful wines in the world.
HOME OF INTENSE HOWELL MOUNTAIN WINE
While California’s year-round sunshine is tempered by fog throughout most of Napa Valley’s viticultural areas, Angwin’s 1800-foot appellation exposes its grapes to a unique combination of cool mountain air and unfiltered sunshine. While sandy or loamy soil characterizes much of Napa Valley, the Angwin appellation grapes are forced to root deeply through rocky mountainous soil in search of water. The resulting grapes produce wine renowned for its intensity and deep, complex flavors.
Two of the best places to sample the famous local produce are Burgess Cellars and CADE. Burgess Cellars boasts some of the best views in the region, with a sweeping panorama that covers the entirety of Napa Valley and the Mayacamas mountain range. CADE is at the cutting-edge of modern wine production. CADE’s state-of-the-art facilities produce four distinctive Howell Mountain wines, with a heavy emphasis on sustainable and environmentally-friendly production techniques.
