Gwinllan Estate

El Dorado

Our Story

The Gwinllan Estate is a family-run winery and vineyard off the beaten path in the Fair Play area. With roots in Wales and England, owners Chris and Gordon Pack got the name “Gwinllan”, from the Welsh word for the vineyard. After harvesting its first vintage in 2009, this winery had two of its inaugural wines earn top honors at the El Dorado County Fair in 2013. With the help of their incredible winemaker Jonathan Pack, the winery’s portfolio has only gotten more impressive since then.

The vineyards and wine caves on the Gwinllan property are absolutely beautiful. Wine tastings within the caves are a fun experience, and a great way to beat the heat! Tastings are also enjoyed with lovely views from the large outdoor patio. While the Gwinllan Estate may not produce as many varietals as other wineries in the area, they certainly do offer some of the best-produced wine. The craftsmanship of each vintage is evident in every tasting. Gwinllan Estate is a must-visit winery in Fair Play!
