Highest and Coldest and Snowiest
Welcome to Truckee's only winery!
Established in 1989. Truckee River Winery is California's highest and coldest winery.
It all started 31 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 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 January of 2020, the tasting room on Brockway Road closed indefinitely. TRW is continuing to make amazing and award winning wines in downtown Truckee, while looking for their next tasting room location-please follow us on Facebook, Insta and email to hear about news, specials and updates!
This is the current stage of our re-opening and we will be closely following the guidelines set by Nevada County and the State of California.
