Consistently recognized as one of the premier wineries in Napa Valley, the Ladera name has been synonymous with creating preeminent mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, impressive Sauvignon Blanc and alluringly distinctive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay for America’s most exacting wine enthusiasts for 25 years.
In an era of large corporate owned businesses, our small, family-owned and operated winery is dedicated to the timeless traditions of artisan winemaking. Lovingly crafted by hand, nurtured barrel by barrel and artfully blended, our limited-production Howell Mountain Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to these practices.
Showcasing the majestic mountain structure and soaring flavors that have made Howell Mountain wine internationally renowned, we are honored to be a part of a small and dedicated group of wineries highlighting the majestic grapes of Howell Mountain. Similarly, our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers a supple balanced palate ideal for those seeking a unique expression not typically found in other valley floor wines.
A truly fantastic tasting. It is extremely intimate. We had over an hour one on one through the tasting learning every piece of information you could hope to learn regarding the grapes, the vineyards, the evolution of technology, as well as the trajectory of the wine Ladera is making. It was a fascinating experience that was our favorite from a long weekend of 8 tastings. There is a small perfectly curated cheeseboard with nuts and some fruit that also was truly astonishing. If possible Ladera deserves another star or two.
Thank you so much for a memorable tasting last week. Andrew was an incredible host and it was our favorite winery tasting we did on our trip to Napa. We also really appreciated how family friendly Ladera was, being so welcoming to having our 14-month-old daughter join us. We posted a lot on Instagram from our visit and will be sure to continue to do so when we enjoy Ladera wine at home. We can’t wait to visit again and for our October wine shipment. Thanks again!
What a beautiful winery! This was one of our stops on a Mom/Daughter trip to Napa and it was definitely my favorite! The service was wonderful and it was so relaxing. We had just come from a much bigger winery and this place was so peaceful. Justin was amazing and he made sure we had a great time. And now I am a member of their wine club! I am looking forward to my next shipment and I will definitely be going back on my next trip to Napa!
Ladera was the hidden gem of our recent Napa visit. HINT: Don’t use the smartphone map that takes you way up the mountain – they are on Silverado Trail! We got to our tasting a few minutes late and Andrew was waiting outside for us. There were four of us and one person was not a Cab “lover” when they arrived and Ladera turned them around. Andrew’s knowledge was awesome but not pretentious. The environment was perfect but the wine’s we had were the real treasure. We had been at six other tastings on our visit and Ladera was the best – I cancelled two other memberships to add lots of their wine!
Jan, Andrew, and the entire Team Ladera work together so well to create an outstanding hospitality experience for their guests. Each member of the team has their own way of interacting to personalize the experience, and all make a point of learning who you are so that you are not just a guest at a winery. At Ladera, you are a friend that they are happy to see today and hope to see again. The beautiful property and warm welcome are accentuated by finely crafted wines that stand up to the test of time and only get better with age. The only thing that you will regret about a visit to this beautiful place is that the visit comes to an end.
Thank you Ladera for a wonderful experience, as always!
