Established in 1989. Truckee River Winery is California's highest and coldest winery.
It all started 34 years ago in the garage of two Truckee locals. For 9 years, this ski lover and his wife, both UC Davis graduates, made great wine for their friends and family in the Truckee/Tahoe community before deciding to expand. They moved the winery into a two story barn on the river where they could make 1000 cases with the help of their daughter and friends. In 2009 they expanded production to 2,500 cases annually and expanded varietals with the help of their daughter, Katy Carroll Jones. They specialize in single vineyard varietals and are known through out the area as producing high quality vintages year after year.
