One of the latest wineries to open it’s doors in the creative and productive Fairplay appellation.  At 2400 foot elevation, with true four season temperatures and weather, this winery sits in the middle of two beautiful roads that house some twenty other wineries.  The 32 acres of vines, sitting on mostly decomposed granite soils, have constantly produced gold and double gold awards even at the most respected San Francisco Chronicle Wine competitions.  The new owners, Les and Sharon Heinsen, have recreated this 18 year old vineyard into pure golden pleasure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q When did you open the winery

We opened formally on February 1st., 2018. Our vines are 18+ years old and we produced over 100 tons of grapes in the 2019 growing year. We expect great things from this year's incredible harvest. We usually sell much of our wine grapes to Napa and Sonoma county wineries. Many of the Fairplay wineries and growers sell to those two counties as well as to wineries in other states.
