Intentus” in Latin translates to Intention and Purpose

Growing up in the wine business surrounded by his family’s VIADER vineyards on Howell Mountain in the Napa Valley gave owner/winemaker Alan Viader the exposure and work experience that fueled his passion for a life in winemaking.


Alan has been making world-class wines from his family’s VIADER winery for over 20 years and since 2018, now also for his own wines: Intentus.


Always the adventure-seeker, Alan takes the opportunity with Intentus to explore new, exciting winegrowing regions from small producers to produce incredibly unique wines with a strong sense-of-place and with pure varietal expression. Being able to support these hardworking farmers and make these incredible limited-edition wines is highly rewarding!


Handcrafted wines made with intention


Alan is not only a winemaker, but also a First Responder. An active member for both Napa County Sheriff's Search & Rescue team and a volunteer firefighter for Napa County’s Deer Park Fire station 21, Alan has seen communities completely devastated by natural disasters and wildfires...and it’s heartbreaking. Yet at the same time such trials and experiences have been incredibly inspirational and have encouraged him to step up and act. Alan started Intentus not only to make great wines, but with the intention to give back to other First Responders.  

Handcrafted wines made with purpose

Alan’s key purpose with Intentus is to allow for substantial charitable giving to the organizations that support communities in need and to the brave first responders willing to put themselves on the frontlines.
