Our 8 acre vineyard (which Dominick planted in 2001) is located in Amador County where we grow the grapes that go into our award-winning and hand-crafted Primitivo and Syrah wines. Located in the heart of California's historic gold country, Amador County is south-east of Sacramento and north-east of Lodi, another burgeoning AVA. Hot and dry through the summer, cold and crisp in the winter, Amador is known for it's big and bold varietals, including Primativo, Syrah and Zinfandel. Thanks to California pioneers, Amador boasts some of the oldest vines in the state. Located in the Sierra Nevada foothills, elevations span from 200 to 9,000 feet, proving a stunning variety in scenery and climate.
