When you think of wines made from Spring Mountain, what immediately comes to mind are wineries like Smith-Madrone, Spring Mountain Vineyard, Pride Mountain, Paloma, or Keenan, wineries that are in the cult or mystic category of wine. But there is a little known Spring Mountain winery that is working hard to become a part of this famed wine community, the Frias Family Vineyards.
We stumbled on this winery when we met owner Manny Frias at an Olympic Club event in San Francisco. Soon afterwards, we made arrangements to visit his ranch on Spring Mountain. Two of Manny’s five children assist him in the operation of the winery. Manny Jr. does the PR and sales and son Fernando attends to the business end of the winery.
