Our Story

Welcome to Sierra Vista

“An El Dorado Original”

​Over 45 years ago, Sierra Vista pioneered the way for the Sierra Foothills when it purchased it’s property in 1972.  The land was cleared and the first vineyard planted in 1974. The topography, soils and altitudes in the vineyard create varied micro climates consistent with some of the best known grape growing regions of the world including Côtes du Rhône, Bordeaux and Burgundy. After 3 years of production, construction and wine making, the winery was open for business in 1977 as one of the first El Dorado County wineries in modern day history. Sierra Vista have been creating award winning wines year after year. Today, the legacy of their premium grapes together with fine artisan wine making produce quality hand crafted wines and maintains its status as one of the oldest continuing run wineries in all of the Sierra Foothills.

Many of our estate wines are from ancient own rootstock with some lineage tracing to the French regions of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage. In addition to our estate wines, we also feature other varietals from around the world, hand crafted in our facility that are nicely balanced wines between fruit, acid and tannins.

When you visit our estate, you’ll enjoy acres of rolling vineyards and picturesque views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We are only 15 minutes off Highway 50 and feature a family-friendly atmosphere, a tasting room, an event room and numerous year-round events that are sure to excite.

Cheers!
