From The Winemaker 

Our wines are meant to be enjoyed with family, friends and food. In addition to  our Trinity County harvest, we also also source beautiful fruit from the Napa Valley and Sonoma County -  where hot days and cool nights create an unparalleled climate to produce exceptional growing conditions.

From the legendary Napa Valley, our Mea Culpa Meritage and Merlot are big, fruit-forward reds that are frequently paired with grilled steak, lamb chops or baby back ribs. Sourced from Sonoma County, we craft a delightful Pinot Noir that offers a pleasant balance of soft tannins and the rich flavor of raspberries and cherries. You'll enjoy our Pinot Noir with cedar plank salmon, pork loin or grilled chicken. 

Our Russian River Chardonnay offers a wonderful balance of citrus with a slight hint of butter. Accented from perfect aging in French and American oak, this wine pairs beautifully with crab cakes, ahi tuna or shrimp scampi. 


Growing up in Napa, I have always embraced the wine country lifestyle. Leaving the hustle and bustle of Napa behind, I would personally like to invite you to share a memorable experience at our unspoiled oasis - deep in the heart of the mountains on the banks of the Trinity River.   I know you'll enjoy our hospitality and hope you will soon venture off the beaten path to visit us.
