Mellowood Vineyard

Mellowood Vineyard


Mellowood Vineyard - Fair Play CANestled in the Sierra Foothills at the crossroads of Sacramento and Tahoe, Mellowood Vineyard was once home to a mine claim called Mellowood. These days the hills and 9 acres of vineyards offer just as precious a commodity.

The ryolitic soils, high elevation and southeast aspect slopes make this a prime spot for something even more precious than what those 49ers were after.

Mellowood Vineyard - Fair Play CAMellowood Vineyard has been working since 2002 to create delicious wines that will bring you to the incredible Sierra Foothills with each sip. While the majority of the 25 acre wooded parcel remains native, 9 acres are planted to Zinfandel and Syrah, both perfectly suited to the growing conditions of this unique appellation of Fair Play.

Our open setting among shady oaks with the vineyards in the background is also just a pretty nice place to spend a while. Located in Fair Play, and tucked away on 25 wooded acres, surrounded by oak trees, pines and vineyards, our winery is waiting for you .

..with stunning, balanced wines, affordably priced, from the beautiful Gold Country of California.
