Nestled in the rolling hills of El Dorado County, deep in the heart of California Gold Country, our property is located in the Fair Play AVA, which has the distinction of being the California AVA with the highest average elevation. Situated at 2,400 feet above sea level, our property encompasses seventy acres, thirty two of which are planted with grapes.

The lower vineyard consists of twenty acres planted with ten acres of Zinfandel, two acres of Cab Franc, one acre of Petite Verdot and seven acres of Syrah. The upper vineyard consists of twelve and one half acres planted with five acres of Petite Sirah, five acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and two and one half acres of Viognier.

Our soil of decomposed granite are sandy loam classified with excellent drainage and are ideal for the grapes they support.

Our mission is to employ the best farming practices to grow the highest quality grapes and produce premium estate-grown single varietal and blended wines.
