Wineries and Vineyards in Lake County California

Wineries and Vineyards in Lake County CA

By Rick White


While waiting for my real estate license in 2005 I had the fortune of working for the Kendal Jackson Winery as a Sugar Sampler.  This was not a high paying job but it was a fun job because it required me to venture through vineyards in remote regions of the county and collect grape samples to monitoring their sugar content. Some of these vineyards were spectacular like Obsidian Ridge Vineyard on the ridge of a hill near Mt Hanna along the Mayacama Mountain range and Terre Vermeille Vineyard owned by the Shannon Ridge winery and located on the south edge of High Valley above the town of Clearlake Oaks. The lake and mountain views from Terre Vermeille are breathtaking. The Red Hills and High Valley are a few of Northern California’s newest wine grape appellations.  The Lake County Wine Grape Growers have a nice website with much more information on the subject. I’m truly amazed by the wine industry growth in Lake County California over the past 6 years. Both professional and amateur wine makers and wine-grape growers recognize the value of our rich volcanic soils and temperate climate. From a cost perspective when you compare how much more affordable land values are here in Lake County to the land values in the more nationally recognized and neighboring established wine-grape regions of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties it starts to make sense why we’re having this growth in Lake County. Many wine grape varieties grow quite well here like Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc. I am very impressed with the some of the Italian and Spanish varietals that are doing well here like the Tempranillo grape which is a black Spanish varietal and the Aglianico grape which black Italian varietal that actually originated in Greece but is grown in the Basilicata and Campania regions of Italy and now grown here in Lake County as well. There are many fun wine events occurring at various times in the county including the Amateur Wine Makers festival that takes place in March and the Lake County Wine Adventure that takes place in July.  Wineries like Moore Family Winery off of Bottle Rock road provide magnificent mountain views and outdoor concerts. Steele Winery in Kelseyville hosts a annual Harvest Festival in the fall and another annual event called “A Taste of Lakeport” places local winery booths various downtown shops giving folks a chance to taste locally made wines and mingle with the locals without traveling too far. If your investigating the possibility of starting a winery or vineyard in Lake County CA or looking for an established Lake County Vineyard for sale or a Lake County Winery for sale then please contact me. I am very familiar with the areas around the lake and I will look forward to assisting you.
