Fortezza Winery’s tasting room is currently closed. We are scheduled to reopen in the Fall of 2016. However, If our sign is out on Mt. Vernon Road, we’re open! If not, please visit us on your next trip to Placer County wine country. Salute!
Fortezza Winery is a small estate of 18 acres located in the beautiful rolling Sierra foothills of Auburn California, near California’s Gold Country. We are growing the “other” Sierra gold. Here at Fortezza we are committed to giving personal attention and special care to each and every vine. We planted our vineyards in 2006 with Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Primitivo and Viognier wine grapes. They have thrived in our warm climate. We are proud to present the wine from our estate grown vineyard to you this year.
Open Weekends 12 to 5, and Private Tours and Tastings Available by Appointment.
Weekday Afternoons – By Appointment
PaZa is surrounded by picturesque views of the Sierra Foothills, the Sutter Buttes, and Coastal mountains. So, we welcome folks who bring lunch, or other treats, to stay and relax with a glass, or a bottle, of our award-winning vino. Owners Pamela and Zane Dobson share an over the top enthusiasm for all things related to wine, and especially appreciate the many people who enjoy wine and life. In short – our wine making style is keeping it simple with serious passion!
