Mark Neal and winemaker Gove Celio direct the farming practices, having refined their techniques for many years. They share the common goal of producing superior grapes required to make quality wines, sustainably so that future generations may do the same. They have also taken a leading role in organic farming, certifying all NFV wine program vineyards with the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). Mark began making wine from the Family vineyard in Rutherford in 1997, and each new season he begins the quest for a perfect vintage, accomplished through the unification of earth, vine, climate and cellar.
