Altamura’s 400 acre ranch in Wooden Valley is host to 65 acres of hillside and valley floor vineyards at elevations of 700 to 1,000 feet. The 12 different soil types and microclimates carry distinguished traits found in the most prestigious vineyards of the NapaValley like Pritchard Hill, Howell Mountain, and the Rutherford Bench. Established in 1985 by Napa Natives Frank and Karen Altamura, they have a decidedly hands-on approach to every step of the growing and winemaking process.  Thus, a natural production limit is established at the Ranch and the wines reflect the Altamura’s deep commitment to showcasing the special place they call home.
