Mariah Intro Text

In the mid ‘70s Vicki and I came up here
to raise a family and a vineyard from the ground up.
It took a lot of very hard work,
but with the help of friends and loved ones,
Mariah Vineyards became a reality.
Up in the clear mountain air,
influenced by the Pacific below and beyond,
we tended our vines by hand,
sustainably farming our special site,
producing fruit that made wines of uniqueness and character
and of the terroir in which they grow.
It is only this fruit that goes into our wines.
So raise a glass of Mariah to Bacchus, the wine god, who said,“Back of the wine is the vintner, and back through the years is his skillbut back of it all are the vines in the sunand the rain and the master’s will.”
