Welcome to Truckee's only winery!

Established in 1989. Truckee River Winery is California's highest and coldest winery.

It all started in 1989 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 opened a tasting room on Brockway Road and expanded production to 2,500 cases annually. They specialize in single vineyard varietals and are known through out the area as producing high quality vintages year after year.

In 2020, Truckee River Winery consolidated to their downtown Truckee production facility, closing the doors on their tasting room. They offer tastings, by the glass and bottle on their petite patio in front of their iconic winery in the red barn. A lawn bocce court, and corn hole are onsite for customer enjoyment, and picnics are welcome. Please follow us on Facebook, Insta, Linked In or email to hear about news, specials and updates!
