Altamura Winery
altamura_05_cab_thumb.jpg Altamura Vineyards and Winery, established in 1985 by Frank and Karen Altamura, is the only winery located in Wooden Valley. Stags' Leap Winery, Pahlmeyer and Caymus purchase grapes from this area, which is within the Napa Valley appellation, yet Altamura is the first to capture Wooden's special characteristics in a bottling. Napa natives Frank and Karen have a decidedly hands-on approach to every step of the growing and winemaking process. Thus, a natural production limit is established and the wines reflect the Altamura's deep commitment to reflecting the terroir of their Wooden Valley Ranch.
