Winnett Vineyards

We called a week in advance and made an appointment. This winery is 100% local, organic and very picturesque. Dave had the wines all ready for us to taste on a little patio table overlooking magnificent redwood forests and the Willow Creek Valley. He was so nice and welcoming and chatted with us for an hour and a half. It was so intimate and we learned a ton about the area and their wine.

Sierra Moon Vineyards

EJ retired in July of 2000 from the construction business, having spent most of his career working on major projects overseas. Upon retiring, he immediately started a second career, constructing a vineyard. Prior to retiring, many potential vineyard areas were investigated, and compared to a list of preferred requirements. Sierra Moon Vineyards has five Rhone varietals; two reds; Petite Sirah and Syrah, and three whites; Viognier, Rousanne, and Marsanne. In addition, we have planted Zinfandel, which the Sierra foothills are well known for producing award-winning Zins. All our wines are made from our estate grown grapes

Grace Patriot Wines

The Irving family immigrated to the United States from Nova Scotia. Grandfather John Irving worked in the Comstock Lode silver mines near Virginia City, Nevada before moving to Jackson, California to mine gold. In 1890, they acquired an 84 acre ranch east of Placerville. It was known as the four mile ranch because it straddled the main road east, formerly the route of the Pony Express. An existing house on the property was present at the time of their acquisition and is listed on the county tax rolls from 1885.After years of clean up and restoration, the ranch has become one of the show places in the Apple Hill area. The property has approximately 16 acres of wine grapes, as well as, peaches and eight varieties of apples farmed by a local retail fruit operation.

Mt. Vernon Winery

Mt. Vernon Winery is one of the most unique wineries you will find in the Sierra foothills. Founders Jim & Lynda Taylor and winemaker Ryan Taylor own the largest and most award winning winery in Placer County with a variety of hand-crafted wines for you to enjoy! The tasting room is a beautifully restored old 1950s milk house with elegant gardens that over look the lush vineyards.

Saxon Brown

n 1997 Saxon Brown was launched, named for the willful heroine in Jack London’s Valley of the Moon. The winery gained instant recognition for its flagship “old vine” Zinfandel and Semillon from heritage field-blended vines originally planted Italian immigrants. The winery also produces a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Pinto Noir, Syrah and Zinfandel from Parmelee-Hill Vineyard, Syrah and Syrah Rose from Flora Ranch, and Semillon from Cricket Creek (Alexander Valley).

Englemann Cellars

Bret and Elainea Engelmann started Engelmann Cellars in 2000 in an old raisin shed that his grandfather built on the 200 acre family vineyard back in 1957. Together Bret and Elainea have brought wine prduction up to 3,000 cases with 85 % sold directly to winelovers in the tasting room or online.

The Terraces

This little hidden gem is very easy to miss while whizzing past on Silverado Trail. But don't overlook this one. You won't be disappointed. Some of the best zinfandel and very good cabernet sauvignon. It is a great value wine that will hold its own against some higher priced wines. This is a very small winery with limited production and only offers a few wines. You won't find this in too many stores so you will need to make a trip out there of go on-line. If you call in advance you can get a quick tour around the winery via golf-cart.

Wise Villa Winery

The owner spent a lot of time on us explaining his wines and the winery's history. To be fair, there were not very many other customers. Still, he kept us entertained and conversed with us for well over an hour. We felt very welcome.Love how they work with their grapes. You know! if they promise me a bottle of the Sangiovese that I barrel-tasted today, I would probably give them another star.
