Angwin

One of the most storied wine-growing appellations in the world.

Welcome to Angwin

Your gateway to Howell Mountain in the Napa Valley.
 
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 1,800 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.

A little Angwin history

The town of Angwin is named for Edwin Angwin, who purchased 200 acres on Howell Mountain in 1875 and established Angwin Resort. A community began to emerge with the success of the Angwin Resort. In 1909, Healdsburg College moved from its location in Healdsburg, CA when it purchased the Angwin Resort to open Pacific Union College.
