"Great grapes, that's what Michael Neal and his vineyard management team are about - that and service. Mike understands that the goal is growing grapes to make great wine, not lots of leaves or huge crops. He works closely with us and our viticulturist to produce the quality that goes into a $150 bottle of Napa Valley Cabernet."

"One of the most obvious things about Michael is that no job is too big for him. He always embraces it with enormous enthusiasm and such vigor. Michael is also always available to talk to me if ever a problem arises. MJN has been managing my vineyard since 2005, and has been doing a great job. I am very satisfied."

"About ten years ago, I became consumed with wanting a small vineyard on some unused hillside property outside of St. Helena. I was referred to Michael Neal. Even though my sanity was questioned by many, Michael took me through the process from county application, exhaustive testing, eventual approval, hillside preparation, planting, nurturing and eventual overall vineyard management. I now have a high quality little vineyard producing outstanding fruit with excellent volume.
The staff is extremely professional, knowledgeable and good people to do business with. My little vineyard has succeeded beyond my expectations and I owe it to MJN."
