Dichotomy 2019               

White pinot noir, pinot noir grapes (hence the name, Dichotomy, white wine made from red grapes) were whole cluster pressed and fermented in a white wine style. This full-bodied wine has a floral bouquet and hints of almond, apple, and honey. Pairs well with fish, chicken, mushrooms and cream-based dishes.                                                                               Gold Medal Winner        

Pinot Noir Rose 2020

A delightful, fruity rose’.  The perfect summer sipping wine it has a hint of strawberry and raspberry with a clean finish.  Light appetizers is the perfect accompaniment to this lovely rose’.


Zinfandel 2016

Hints of black cherry, brambleberry, and sweet vanilla emanate from this Zinfandel. Harvested from Thaddeus’ Vineyard in south El Dorado County, this Zinfandel pairs well with heartier meats and vegetables, including truffles!              Silver Medal, Sunset Magazine Wine Competition


Zinfandel 2017

Buy and hold this still young but promising Zinfandel. Also hailing from Thaddeus’ Vineyard, this wine is promising to be like its older sister, Zinfandel 2015 which is now a library wine. It is a Double Gold Winner, Best of Class.


Pinot Noir 2017

The Middle Fork of the American River provides cool evening air that settles onto the Vinehill Vineyard’s north facing slope providing a microclimate for Pinot Noir. This popular wine has hints of cherries, vanilla and hibiscus followed by a long finish. Versatile wine that pairs well with fish, fowl, meats, roasted vegetables.  


Sangiovese 2017               

We are very pleased with our first release of Sangiovese 2017. Full of cherry, plum and strawberry, the characteristic tannins coupled with its medium body makes it perfect for pairing with cured sausages, hard cheeses and roasted meats.


Pinot Noir 2019 Sweetness

Sweetness: a pleasant quality. The pleasant quality of this pinot noir rose is a hint of sweetness. The barely perceptible 2% residual sugar is perfectly balanced with the acidity of this 2019 Vinehill Vineyard Pinot Noir, making it a great aperitif and summer sipper, chilled or (gasp!) over ice. And, the alcohol level of 12.5% allows you to select another of our award-winning wines to enjoy with dinner!


Pinot Noir 2018 “Studious”
The Middle Fork of the American River provides cool evening air that settles onto the Vinehill Vineyard’s north facing slope providing a microclimate for Pinot Noir. A slightly less intense and lower alcohol level than 2017’s vintage, this wine also exhibits hints of cherries, vanilla and hibiscus followed by a long finish. Versatile wine that pairs well with fish, fowl, meats, roasted vegetables and selected mildly flavored cheeses.
