About Us

Our Story

We are a small family winery embarking on a venture that redefines small wineries.  We are not big enough to be "boutique".  We are "micro".  We may even be "micro micro".  But we're here to make the best wines possible and enjoy every moment of it with our family. The idea behind this venture is to build a family business for the next generation. We hope that one day, this might be something they want to be a part of. In the meantime we will be teaching them important life skills. Learn by doing!

Our Land

Our winery is located in rural Lincoln, CA Near the intersection of Wise Rd and Crosby Herold Rd. We are at the base of the Sierra Foothills right where the hills start to roll.  There are large granite outcroppings in this area and oak trees are abundant on our property. 

Tastings are done in our open air structure "The Vino Veranda", it is positioned facing the western sky, overlooking our irrigation   pond and pumpkin patch. Our accommodations are sparse and there is no other winery building other than the Vino Veranda. Parking and path ways are dirt and gravel. Many of our improvements are still in progress, including young vineyard plantings. We hope you visit, and please bring your sense of adventure. 

Our Wines

Our winemaking journey started with a Chardonnay kit in 2012 and has grown from there. We still make Chardonnay as it is a family favorite. Specifically we love a big oaky, and buttery Chardonnay.  We also love making lesser known varieties, such as : Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Blanc, Tannat, Nero D'Avola,  Grenache, and Syrah, and Petit Verdot, and Tempranillo... well the list goes on.  In 2019 we fermented about 20 different wines. Look for them to be released over the next 1-2 years.

By Appointment Only

Our tastings are by appointment only.  You will be seated with the winemakers and they will take you through the currently available wines.  You may have others in your group but the maximum we will seat at a time is 8.  Tastings are $20/person and are outdoors so weather is a variable.  Please email or call to schedule an appointment.   We ask for 48 hours advance notice but if you're in the area feel free to reach out and see if we can accommodate you!
