Hidden high in the Santa Cruz Mountains lies a unique winery and vineyard operated by founder/winemaker Jerold O'Brien. Established in 1979, Silver Mountain Vineyards is located at an elevation of 2,100 feet and enjoys a spectacular view of the Monterey Bay and surrounding redwood forest.
Warm summer days and cool nights balance to produce a longer hang-time for our fruit, maximizing their flavor. The estate certified organic vineyard grows Mount Eden clone Chardonnay, and Joseph Swan clone Pinot Noir as well as Merlot. We purchase additional Pinot Noir for our vineyard designated program. Also other Bordeaux varieties
for our Bourdeaux blend, "Alloy" from near by sustainably farmed vineyards.
Winemaker Jerold O'Brien
Today, Jerold has an extensive background in the combination of art and science that is winemaking. The commitment to excellence, sense of adventure and fearless approach to challenge that he developed as a combat pilot are the very traits that make him shine as a winemaker. Jerold avoids technological shortcuts and instead uses traditional techniques like extended maceration and hand punch-downs.

He channels his time and energy into one specific goal: creating premium, world-class wines at reasonable prices. Jerold carefully inspects every barrel of wine to ensure the quality and flavor for which Silver Mountain is known. His old-world attention to detail and passion for wine will continue to make Silver Mountain Vineyards a standout in the wine industry.
