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. Please review the bottom of our "where-our-wines-are-available" page to check on availability of specific wines.
