Building on an idea that first fruited in the Burgundy and Bordeaux regions of France, Mountain View Winery became one of California's first négociant wineries in 1978, its winemakers concocting vintages by curating, blending, and aging a harvest of grapes from rigorously vetted vineyards. Owner Angelo Pera strives to deliver a compelling product by partnering with organic growers and packaging companies and indoctrinates new or interested customers during spirit-sampling symposiums. Throughout tastings, visitors glean each grape's origin, method of production, and propensity for carpet staining.

The owners have plenty of practice curating a selection of fine wines, garnered at their other establishment, Wellington's Wine Bar. They offer almost two-dozen varietals of wine by glass, with vintages from France, Napa Valley, Argentina, and Italy.
