Discover the Acclaimed Wines of Ladera
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 more than two decades.
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.

Recent Praise for Ladera
2016 Ladera Reserve Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
“One of those classic vintages in Napa Valley, with no serious heat spikes or threat of rain; our Cabernet Sauvignon was able to mature gradually.”
2017 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
“Fat and full on the mouth, this shows ripe cassis flavors that mingle with graphite, creosote and black cherry cordial on the palate. Full-bodied and drinking marvelously”
2021 Ladera Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc
“Fruit from Ryan’s Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District provides the fruit for this stunner, with Clone 1 and Sauvignon Musqué. Peaches and cream aromas dive into a salty minerality, fueled by scents and flavors of jasmine, ginger, and gardenia.”
2019 Ladera Pillow Road Vineyard Chardonnay
“Very soft and refined on the mouth, this is loaded with mouth-watering acidity with lemon rind, vanilla cream and shades of roasted pineapple. Consume this delicious new 2019 Chardonnay over the next seven plus years.”
2019 Ladera Pillow Road Vineyard Pinot Noir
“Patchouli and cinnamon-lathered raspberries are eloquent in their elegant expression, communicating exotic cocoa-dipped floral tones. Spiced dates, paprika, coriander, and a hint of cumin extend the finish.”
