Dear friends of Gray Pine Winery… Due to the ongoing spike in COVID activity, I am closing the winery tasting room for the next few weeks.  I will reopen once things settle down again.  If you are in need of wine, I can still take orders via email to, with pickup at the winery.  Thank you for your understanding and support.  Stay safe!  rgl

Named for the native California Gray Pine which is prevalent in our area, Gray Pine Vineyard & 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 called PennRidge. 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.

The winery tasting room is once again open most weekends from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm (last tasting at 4:00 pm). We welcome covid-vaccinated guests in the tasting room and are limiting tasting room occupancy to 4 guests at a time. Weather-permitting, additional guests (vaccinated or not), are welcome to taste on our wisteria-covered patio. Always check this web page before planning your visit to be sure we're open. Winery and cave tours and tastings are also available by appointment. Please call 530-432-7045.
