  1. The Withers Ruben Red Blend El Dorado 2016

    The Withers Ruben Red Blend El Dorado 2016

    $43.00
    83% Mourvèdre, 9% Syrah, and 8% Grenache grown in the hills of El Dorado. Floral, spicy aromas and bold well-articulated flavors accompany a firm, moderately tannic texture in this oaky but well-balanced Mourvèdre-based wine. It has a tangy nervy mouthfeel, plenty of baking-spice and cedar nuances and a good core of red and black cherry. Earthy notes, meaty, black pepper, plums, raspberry and savory elements round out the palate. Learn More
  2. Forlorn Hope Queen of the Sierra White Rorick 2016

    Forlorn Hope Queen of the Sierra White Rorick 2016

    $22.00
    This is an unusual Sierra Foothills blend of Piquepoul, Verdelho, Chardonnay, and Albariño. They come together for a fresh, nervy, delicate style that’s filled out with some creamy richness, citrus aromas of lime and lemon zest, and a lightly spicy mouthfeel of white pepper and ginger. So much acidity coming from the Piquepoul and Albariño, giving the palate a real zing. Perfect accompaniment to fish or seafood. Learn More
  3. Jolie Laide Gamay Noir "Barsotti Vineyard" El Dorado 2018

    Jolie Laide Gamay Noir "Barsotti Vineyard" El Dorado 2018

    $34.00
    Gamay used to be widely planted in California, but was seen as an inferior grape. However, when it’s treated with care the wines can be glorious. The fruit comes from high-elevation El Dorado in the Sierra Foothills. The grapes start carbonic maceration before being trodden by foot and then going through whole-cluster fermentation. The result is a sophisticated wine, pretty and floral, with ripe rasberries and strawberries, followed by a grainy, textured palate. Learn More
  4. Ghost of a Chance Grooveline "Dancing Queen"  Pet Nat Sierra Foothills 2018

    Ghost of a Chance Grooveline "Dancing Queen" Pet Nat Sierra Foothills 2018

    $30.00
    This is fruit in a glass. It’s 100% Mourvèdre from the Sierra Foothills. Fermentation is finished off in the bottle (so expect a bit of sediment), which makes this wine incredibly fresh. Bright pink in appearance, with fruity aromas of cranberry, strawberry, plum, and blackberry, as well as white pepper and cinnamon. Vibrant and alive on the palate, this is as refreshing as it gets. Make sure this bottle is cold when you open it! Learn More
  5. Keplinger Lithic 2016

    Keplinger Lithic 2016

    $75.00
    41% Grenache, 32% Mourvèdre, 7% Syrah from high-elevation Shake Ridge vineyard in Sierra Foothills. Fermentation is 20-30% whole cluster for a smooth, fresh texture, and then the wine is aged in 25% new oak. A very attractive nose of wild flowers, dried herbs, pepper, licorice, raspberries, and blackberries leads on to a palate full of crunchy fruits and with firm, structured tannins and a long, full finish.

  6. Cruse Wine Co Rorick Vineyard Chardonnay Sierra Foothills 2017

    Cruse Wine Co Rorick Vineyard Chardonnay Sierra Foothills 2017

    $35.00
    The fruit comes from Rorick Vineyard in Calaveras County for this fantastically textured Chardonnay. It’s all fermented and aged in neutral oak, although it received a six-hour press for extra complexity and mouthfeel. This is a full, round, creamy Chardonnay, but one that’s extremely well balanced by fresh acidity and a grainy texture, as well as aromas of pear, peach, nectarine, cinnamon, and white pepper, all rounded off by a long finish.

  7. Donkey & Goat "The Bear" Red Wine El Dorado 2015

    Donkey & Goat "The Bear" Red Wine El Dorado 2015

    $45.00
    From one of California’s first natural wine producers and based in Berkeley, this is an irresistible Rhône blend of Counoise, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah, and even Roussanne, all planted at 2,800ft/ 850m elevation in the Sierra Foothills. A really inviting, fresh, fruity nose, with aromas of raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, and black cherry, pepper, licorice, and nutmeg, leading into a lively palate with a grainy texture and a subtle yet mouthfilling finish Learn More
  8. Arnot Roberts Gamay El Dorado 2018

    Arnot Roberts Gamay El Dorado 2018

    $36.00
    From two high-elevation vineyards in El Dorado that over the last twenty years have seen the first plantings of genuine Gamay. Bright and peppery, with lightly carbonic aromas of vanilla, cream, strawberries, and raspberries leading on to firm tannins and a viscous palate. Wines like this make us hope that more California producers will work with Gamay. This winery has gained cult status for good reason, pop the cork and enjoy with any kind of fare! Learn More
  9. Waterfall Aglianico El Dorado 2013

    Waterfall Aglianico El Dorado 2013

    $29.00
    Aglianico is the great grape of southern Italy, so it’s intriguing to see it planted in the similarly warm continental climate of El Dorado in the Sierra Foothills. Made by Helen Keplinger and aged in neutral oak for three years, this is a serious, tannic, dry, dusty, smoky wine with aromas of strawberry, plum, blackberry, black cherry, clove, nutmeg, fig, and prune. Very long finish drawing out the tannins. We like to think of this as a California/Italy crossover. Learn More
  10. Irwin Family Vineyard "The Bull" Sierra Foothills 2016

    Irwin Family Vineyard "The Bull" Sierra Foothills 2016

    $27.00
    40% Tempranillo, 22% Malbec, 20% Petite Sirah, and 18% Syrah. An unusual and very drinkable blend sourced from a single vineyard at 1,500 feet/450m in elevation in the Sierra Foothills. “The Bull” exudes flavors and aromas of blackberry, pomegranate, black plum, blackcurrant, violets, mocha, and earth.
