We are a family owned and operated winery, estate vineyard, and Tuscan-style restaurant nestled in the Sierra Foothills Wine Appellation of Placer County. Our grapes are Certified Sustainable and meticulously grown using organic and certified sustainable practices. During harvest we go a step further by triple sorting and implementing whole berry, cold fermentation to retain a balanced wine with natural fresh fruit character.
