Sierra Foothills

Our Story

Terroir is everything, but so as they say is location, and sometimes those aren’t the same place. As a result, we have a more accessible downtown Plymouth tasting room 15 minutes from our vineyard, winery and estate tasting room, where as opposed to what might seem apparent, the best vineyard sites are not necessarily alongside the pre-existing major thoroughfares.

In the Foothills, we can grow any warm climate varietals but focus on those that perform at their best in granitic soils. Italian and Rhone varietals benefit from our consistently ideal climate. Our vineyard and winery’s location straddles ridgelines above an elevation of 2000 ft, benefitting from cooling afternoon breezes, abundant sunshine and low yielding rocky soils resulting in our unique terroir.
