Mountain Spirit

High in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Silver Mountain visitors enjoy spectacular views looking out over the redwood forests to Monterey Bay.

Jerold O'Brien is a firm believer that the mountain philosophy of independence and challenge produces strong character, both in people and in grapes. These special qualities characterize the Santa Cruz Mountains and contribute to the distinctive mountain flavor of Silver Mountain wines.

Steward of the Land

Top quality fruit produces exceptional wine — and it all begins in Silver Mountain’s certified organic vineyards. Jerold O’Brien has a fundamental concern for the environment and is a proponent of sustainable and organic practices for viticulture and other food sources.

Organically grown in harmony with mother nature.
 Produced in small lots that capture delicate nuances of flavor.
