Great tasting room with plenty of reds, whites and even two dessert wines. The sparkling wine was wonderful too. Prices are very reasonable. Our server, Robert, did a wonderful job and we loved the food suggestions for each wine. If anyone in your party isn't a wine drinker they can drink in the spectacular scenery and the lovely gardens. Highly... More

Driving from Redwoods to Marin, I couldn't find the time to squeeze in a quick trip to a winery while traveling on 101. While looking for a good lunch spot on the way from Marin to Tahoe, I came across mention El Dorado wine region. To find a winery, I did quick research on the ratings of the wines. Sierra... More

We stopped by here after lunch and enjoyed their wines. The server was very nice and knew her wines. They also have a nice view. We were impressed with their whites and rose. The reds were okay.

This winery is pretty impressive. We couldn't say that every wine thrilled us, but enough of them did. And there were a lot of wines to taste. These guys have a huge repertoire! The staff were really friendly and knew the wines and the vineyards the grapes come from very well. They had a good handle on the wine making... More

My wife and I have been members of the wine club here for a long time. John was one of the first winemakers to emphasize Rhone varietals in California. We love the Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, Roussane and Viognier he also makes a flinty Sauvignon Blanc that is great with fish. The Fleur de Montagne is one of the best blends... More

I live around here, so I'm partial to our Pleasant Valley wineries. Nevertheless, John and Barbara are not only among the original EDC wine pioneers, they are Rhone grape variety pioneers in the USA, having planted some of the first commercial blocks of Syrah in the 1970s. John's wine are the hallmark of high-level consistency. His Viognier (a Rhone white)... More

We spent a Saturday tasting wines wine on Pleasant Valley Rd. This winery has a nice tasting room with good wines. It would be great on a hot day to taste and then picnic under the huge trees with view of the Sierras.

We recently stopped by this winery when looking for "something to do" over Labor Day. I enjoy the quaintness and simplicity of some of the older foothill wineries, and Sierra Vista in now on that list. The tasting room is small and simple and offers some nice merchandise. Most importantly, are the many wonderful wines produced by this little gem... More

Featuring estate-grown varietals and blends, Sierra Vista has value-priced wines from El Dorado County including Zin, Merlot, Grenache, Syrah, and Cabernet. Their GSM blend, Fleur de Montagne and their reserve Syrah were our favorites, but the good news is that you have a lot of choices.
