Why the name Pescatore? Meaning fisherman in Italian, fishing is Dave’s hobby when he’s not busy with the vineyard or winery. In addition, it is Patty’s immigrant Grandma’s maiden name. Nicolina Pescatore immigrated from Naples in the early 1900’s. Grandma always made her own wine. She even kept a carafe of wine in her refrigerator! Our boutique winery produces only about 800 cases of wine a year. We tend each vine ourselves and the grapes are pressed manually in a traditional wooden basket press.

Popie Wines is a hand crafted boutique winery producing award winning wines. Since 1922, three generations of the Duarte family have worked in the Napa Valley growing high quality grapes that have produced award winning wines. I am the fourth generation Duarte continuing the family growing tradition, here in Placer County, my father (Richard “Popie” Duarte) taught me. 2006 found me completing the cycle, “from soil to bottle”, not just as a grower, but now as a winemaker as well. Over the years I have learned that “wine is truly made in the vineyard”. Our vineyard is family managed, maintained, and sustainably grown, allowing us the control to produce exceptional wines. I am now taking my family heritage to the next step in producing what I hope to be well made enjoyable wines from our Duarte Family Vineyards.
Hours: Friday – Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. – Thursday by appointment
Rancho Roble Vineyards is a family owned winery with deep roots in grape growing and wine making. The vineyards “Syrah Noir” planted in 1999 and “Barbera” planted in 2000 produce luscious fruit year after year. The Barbera grape was selected because of its rich history in the area. The Italian Barbera was originally introduced to Placer County by the 49’ers during the 19th century Gold Rush. This varietal is also particularly well suited to the soils and oak savannah micro-climate of the Placer County Sierra Foothills where Rancho Roble Vineyards and Winery are located.
Rock Hill Winery began in Sonoma County named after a volcanic hillside vineyard with hundreds of feet of dry stacked rock walls. Presently located in the Sierra Foothills of Placer County, the rich soil tops decomposed granite allowing for perfect drainage. Hot summer days and cool nights produce ideal conditions for this world class wine. Drink and enjoy our Wine Country tradition.
Hours: Saturday & Sunday, 12 – 5 p.m.
