A Hidden Gem: Newton Vineyard.

Newton Vineyard is a hidden gem located in St. Helena, CA and it will take your breath away. When my Instagram bestie Soy (@RetroModernSplendor) from New York said she was coming to visit me, I knew I wanted to take her here. Founded in 1977 by Sua (from China) and Peter Hua (from England), Newton Vineyard is one of the most prestigious estates in California’s Napa Valley with an interesting but subtle combination of cultural influences on the property’s several landmarks (you’ll see why later). The terraced mountain estate has less than one-fifth of its total 560 acres planted to vines at elevations ranging up to 1,600 feet above sea level. The non-farmed acreage remains in its native forested state providing natural habitat for indigenous wildlife. The property is definitely a gem, but besides the breathtaking views and the spectacular gardens, this winery itself is extremely unique.
