Sierra Knolls Vineyards are located on western facing slopes in the Northern Sierra Foothills region of south Nevada County, CA, near Lake of the Pines. We grow two varietals of wine grapes: Merlot (planted in 1998) and Zinfandel (planted in 2002), about an acre of each on this 2000' elevation property. The vines are hand tended and hand harvested with love by our family who enjoy the beauty of working with the vines and the excitement of the harvest and crush! The grapes are not treated with pesticides or fertilizers. Sulfur is used sparingly to prevent powdery mildew.
These grapes produce our excellent small lot estate wines.
An acre of Zinfandel is also growing on our Tasting Room grounds. This small vineyard was planted in 2014 and will soon be contributing to our estate wines. We also pick some when ripe to share with visitors to the tasting room to acquaint them with deliciousness of wine grapes!
