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 now featuring our 2014 reds, including Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and our PennRidge Red Blend. We also usually have a delightful Sauvignon Blanc, but are sold out of that at the moment.  We are running very low on several of our other favorites, including Barrel Select Cab and Merlot. Please review the bottom of our "where-our-wines-are-available" page to check on availability.
