Windwalker Vineyard

Jim and Alanna Taff - Owners of Windwalker Vineyard and Winery

Jim and Alanna TaffWe are James and Alanna Taff, owners of Windwalker Vineyard and Winery. We started out our journey as humble home wine makers and members of the El Dorado Home Wine Makers Association. We developed such a passion for wine, that we decided to expand that interest in a commercial venture, and purchased Windwalker Vineyard in 2006.

Windwalker is one of the oldest vineyards in El Dorado County, and already had a loyal following of club members when we purchased it. As previous wine club members, it has been our mission to continue the legacy of providing excellent customer service and wines to our members and visitors. We have been blessed through the years with many new additions, and we enjoy sharing our time with them in the Tasting Room, and at our many events throughout the year.

We still enjoy being apart of the process of making of our wines, but for the most part we leave it up to our world-class winemaker to craft some of the best wines in El Dorado County. Year in and year out, he  produces wines that keep our members and guests returning. In addition, we have received numerous awards and accolades for our wine.

Sincerely,  James and Alanna Taff
