Gray Pine Winery


Dear Friends of Gray Pine Winery: Thank you for your tremendous support and for making 2019 such a successful year for us.  Due to your support and to an exceptionally small harvest in 2017, we find ourselves with a very limited inventory of wine for 2020.  Consequently, we expect to close the tasting room more frequently during 2020, in order to extend supplies.  Please make sure to check this website to verify that we are open before planning your trip.  Thank you!

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.
