The latin poet Publius Ovidius Naso inspired our Ovid wine name. His work highlights mythologies of transformation, metamorphoses, and change. Ovid was the name of our software company, and is now the name of Ovid Vineyards, our winery overlooking Oakville on Pritchard Hill. We are experimenting with winemaking and sustainable farming. Ovid’s gravity-flow winery is on a hill overlooking Oakville in Napa Valley. One-acre blocks with Bordeaux style varietals, and concrete fermenting tanks inspired by the great Chateaux. Ovid winery is solar-powered and green certified. Ovid Napa Valley is a blend of 4 Bordeaux varietals. On our wine label is a latin quote from Ovid’s Metamorphoses that expresses our mission, partly we recovered the olde, familiar things, partly we created something new.
-Owners, Mark Nelson & Dana Johnson
