/ Details

Alpen Cellars is situated in a picturesque mountain valley at the foot of towering craggy peaks in the Trinity Lake region of Trinity County, California. It seems an unlikely location to attempt to grow wine grapes but turned out to be notably rewarding. The combination of high elevation and favorable microclimate proved to be the ideal conditions for growing early maturing vinifera grapes such as White Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the four varieties to which the ranch vineyard is planted. We also feature Pinot Gris and Merlot, which are grown in select sites elsewhere in Trinity County.
