Cedarville Vineyard wines are hand crafted by Jonathan Lachs and Susan Marks from grapes grown in the granitic soils of our sustainably farmed estate vineyard at 2500 feet elevation in the Sierra Foothills of California. Everything we do in our energy efficient winery building is designed to reflect the unique character of our hillside vineyard, beginning with hand sorting grape clusters before crushing through to aging our wines in our underground caves.
We are a true estate vineyard and winery.
