Carvalho Family Winery

Starting in the villages and vineyards of Portugal, winemaking has been a Carvalho family tradition. Today, Carvalho Family Winery continues that tradition as an ultra-premium winery, dedicated to the production of small-lot, hand-crafted California wines using grapes from the Clarksburg appellation and other high-quality vineyards throughout California. Clarksburg, CA

Karmere Vineyards & Winery

Karmere's sixty-seven acres of estate grown vines are grown in the rich Sierra Nevada decomposed granite soils of Amador county, on gentle slopes of 1300 feet to 1600 feet elevation. The combination of well-managed vines and well drained hillsides restricts vigor producing two to four tons of grapes per acre. The cool summer nights and hot days are ideal for producing robust red wines.  Vineyards are sustainably farmed meaning that organic practices are used except rare conditions where only the benign chemical treatments are employed. Integrated Pest Management practices are employed. As a result of these practices, Karmere is proud to achieve ecologically balanced vineyards. Enjoy their exclusive hand-crafted wines in a tasting room located in a beautiful French-style chateau.

Moniz Family Wines

These wines are made with the intent to over-deliver on quality and achieve a great value. Our main focus is on two of our Cabernet Sauvignon blends, Cuvee Alexandra and Cuvee Olivia, named for our two daughters.

Oak Ridge Winery

Oak Ridge Winery is Lodi’s oldest operating winery, which was
founded in 1934 as a winemaking cooperative of local growers.
 In 2002 the Maggio and Reynolds families purchased the winery,
 and during the last twelve years a historical landmark has been 
transformed into a state-of-the-industry winery. Oak Ridge Winery is
 situated between the Sierra Nevada Foothills and the San Francisco 
Bay. The uniquely Mediterranean climate, warm days and coastal evening breezes, is ideal for the cultivation of world-class wine grapes. California’s top varietal thrives here, with Zinfandel being the singular phenomenon. We have some vines that are over 125 years old; these vines produce small yields of intense flavor fruit to create wines that are the ultimate expression of the terrior.

Sean Minor

Our wines come from premium vineyard sites strategically located near the cool marine influences of the sun filled California coast. With each new vintage, we offer wines of consistent flavor and exceptional quality from vineyards perfectly suited to each particular varietal. In order for a wine to be considered it must exude the characteristics of the grape variety, and then of its chosen vineyard site within a specifically selected appellation. 

Skinner Vineyards

Skinner Vineyards and Winery was established in 2006, but founder Mike Skinner has ties to the region’s
 winemaking past. His ancestors started one of the 
region’s first commercial wineries in 1861 and planted 
Rhône varieties such as Grenache and Carignane, both
 of which Skinner still grows today in his two vineyards.
 Located in the Sierra Foothills, Skinner Vineyards 
believes in the importance of treating the environment
 with respect – that’s why the winery is solar-powered and constructed from 80% recycled steel. “We integrate sustainable practices whenever we can, from reducing pesticide use and clearing brush with our resident goat herd, to protecting and preserving the animal habitat in the vineyards. “

Hoppy Brewery

In an attempt to carve out a niche in the growing microbrewery market, we decided to distinguish ourselves from the competition by providing the consumer with an easily identifiable package that was unlike anything previously seen in the industry, along with a traditional style of beer (India Pale Ale – IPA) that had not been readily available to consumers for quite some time. We believe this style of beer tends to attract those consumers who are currently drinking hand-crafted pale ales, and who are looking for a fuller-bodied “more mouth feel” type of beer to drink. This train of thought has proven to be an asset to our company, and has been clearly evident from the enthusiasm generated by consumers over our company’s flagship product.
