Nestled in the foothills of the cascade mountains, you’ll find the tiny town at the mouth of the Manton Valley, where Lassen Peak provides a spectacular, ever-present backdrop. At each stop along this gently curving mountain road, you meet new friends you feel you’ve known forever as you enjoy their hospitality and taste their wines. These wines are special; you’ll learn the rich volcanic soil that Lassen Peak provides creates some of the best red wines in the country. As the road gently climbs up the valley, vineyard rows are a beautiful surprise among the increasing pine trees and peaceful meadows of the mountain landscape. The vineyards in the upper reaches of the valley regularly see blankets of snow and this too helps create those flavors unique to these mountain wines. The slightly eclectic flavor of each vineyard also conveys the flavor of the location. You’ll learn how harvest techniques change the flavor of the experience. Manton asks you to “Change your altitude” which is frequently misread as “Change your attitude.” You’ll find changing your altitude does change your attitude with each surprise discovery you make as you experience Manton ascension.
