Angwin sits just below the summit of Howell Mountain. Rising to the east of Napa Valley, Howell Mountain is one of the most storied wine-growing appellations in the world. Above the Valley fog, it drenches grapes in sun and cool mountain air, and its rocky soil forces the vines to root deeply in search of water. This combination creates the amazingly intense, complex flavors for which Howell Mountain wines are famous. At about 1800 feet, the tiny town of Angwin sits astride a single crossroad, home to a small shopping center on one side and the campus of Pacific Union College on the other. Though there's not a single restaurant or hotel here, wineries in Angwin are plentiful and well worth the climb up The Hill, as the locals call it. For a classic wine-tasting experience and views that stretch from St. Helena to Calistoga, stop by Burgess Cellars. At the lower edge of Angwin, Cade offers highly rated wines in a state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly winery with a strikingly modern design.
Many of the service’s that Angwinites depend on — including the village’s only market — are operated by the college, meaning they adhere to the strict religious restrictions called for by the Adventist faith.
Members of the church are expected to abstain from tobacco, alcohol and meat. As a result, Angwin’s College Market carries none of these worldly temptations.
Inside, patrons can sift through freezers full of faux-meat products such as “vege-salami,” “rice burgers” and packages of imitation “scallop delights,” but not an ounce of real meat — or drop of alcoholic Napa Valley wine — can be found.
On Saturdays — the Adventist Sabbath — businesses are closed, further evidence of the role religion plays in the mountain-side hamlet.
However, roughly a mile up the road from the center of the PUC campus, a different culture is evolving.
Here — carved into the side of the Howell Mountain — the tasting room at Arkenstone Vineyards stands ready to pour premium reds and whites for those who are willing to make the trip up the hill.
Planting its first vineyard blocks in 1998, Arkenstone now boasts a 25,000 square-foot cave complex featuring state-of-the-art fermentation equipment and a new hospitality area — a far cry from the rural and rustic image that many have come to associate with the Angwin name.
