About Us 


Top quality fruit produces exceptional wine and it all begins in Silver Mountain's certified organic vineyards. Founder and Winemaker, Jerold O'Brien has a fundamental concern for the environment and is a proponent of sustainable and organic practices for viticulture and other food sources.

Our 100 percent organic viticulture starts with a fundamental concern for the environment, and expands to include a healthier and more delicious end product for our customers. We employ organically approved and naturally occurring substances in all vineyard applications, which means that no chemical herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or synthetic fertilizers are used in our vineyard.

Did you know?

Jerold O'Brien was twenty-two years of age and a young Air Force pilot when he first recognized his interest in wine. Over the years, his travels to various parts of the world offered exposure to many different cultures, and their food and table beverages. "The more I tasted, the more I wanted to know, particularly about the wines. Why were they different? What was it about the soil, climate, grape variety and winemaking practices that produced the unique qualities of various wines?"

Today, Jerold has an extensive background in the combination of art and science that is winemaking. The commitment to excellence, sense of adventure and fearless approach to challenge that he developed as a combat pilot are the very traits that make him shine as a winemaker. Jerold avoids technological shortcuts and instead uses traditional techniques like extended maceration and hand punch-downs.
