Founder Greg Boeger offers many wines from 29 grape varieties grown at the estate in the Sierra Foothills town of Placerville, California. Greg and Sue Boeger bought the ranch in 1972 and the following year built a winery and planted vineyards. The old Fossati-Lombardo house was converted into a tasting room and opened in 1974.
The winery's Pinot Grande is from Greg's personal vineyard located at a high elevation in El Dorado County.
The winemakers are Greg and his son Justin, both graduates of University of California at Davis.
Tasting available at the winery daily.
