Winery InfoIn the year 2000, Chaim and Elisheva Gur-Arieh purchased 209-acre parcel of land between the south and middle forks of the Cosumnes River in the Shenandoah Valley of the Sierra Foothills. High in the rolling hills at 1700 elevation, this region is graced with hot days, temperate nights, cool moderating breezes and excellent loam soils.
Using the natural terrain, the architectural design of the winery was constructed on 2 plateaus, thus creating “gravity feed” as part of the winemaking process. This facility, which also features an art gallery, is built to produce 15,000 cases of wine annually. With 40 acres already planted and plans to cultivate 30 more over the next five years, the Gur-Ariehs have crafted an exceptional vineyard producing world class wine grapes. The viticultural practices are aimed at producing uniformly ripe fruit throughout every vineyard block.
