Element 79

Les and Sharon HeinsenGold, the 79th element on the periodic table, was the inspiration for our name. More than just the symbol for the gold on the vine and in the bottle, the name was also inspired by our love of El Dorado County and a recognition of its importance in our nation's history as the location that began the legendary California Gold Rush.

Les and Sharon Heinsen's vineyard is located in the Fairplay AVA, nestled in the rolling hills of El Dorado County, deep in the heart of California Gold Country's foothills. Fair Play AVA has the distinction of being the California AVA with the highest average elevation. Situated at 2,400 feet above sea level, the property encompasses 70 acres- 32 of which are planted with Fair Play CA grapes producing amazing Gold Country wines with the guidance of Scott Johnson, wine maker.

Cool breezes from the Sierra Nevada combined with high elevations and mountainous terrain creating the perfect conditions for growing the finest grapes. As an estate winery, we grow all the grapes used to produce our wines within our own vineyard. You can find this wine online, as well as visiting the winery.
