Gray Pine Winery
Named for the native California Gray Pine which is prevalent in our area, Gray Pine Winery is a small, limited-production winery located in Penn Valley, California, in the Sierra Foothills, with an annual production of approximately 350 cases. We grow our own grapes on our two-acre vineyard and make our own wines. Specializing in Bordeaux varietals, we produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and a classic Bordeaux-style Red Blend. We also have a very small amount of Sauvignon Blanc. We believe that fine wine is best enjoyed with fine meals and our winemaking focus is on food-friendly wines with balanced acid and tannins, in the classic Bordeaux style. Our first vintage was 2011. We are currently featuring our 2013 reds and our newly-released 2016 Sauvignon Blanc, although we are beginning to sell out of some of the reds. We are also starting to roll out our new 2014 reds, including Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and our PennRidge red blend.
Stop by the winery tasting room and sample our award-winning wines, including our gold-medal 2013 Bordeaux Style Red Blend.
