Established in 1989.

Truckee River Winery is California's highest and coldest winery. It all started 28 years ago in the garage of a ski lover and his wife. For 9 years they made great wine for their friends and family in the area 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. The tasting room opened 8 years ago as a place for locals and visitors alike to enjoy their wine, food, bocce courts, and more.

  • Although, I don't drink wine. I must say, very nice to discover this beautiful country out here. What a pleasant exploration.
  • The real draw is their plentiful outdoor seating and bocce courts. Inside, the tasting room is small, unassuming, and seats perhaps 12 people. Wine is good and the staff was quite knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend, especially during summer!
