Owners Stewart and Stephanie Perry planted their vines in 2001 and opened their winery in 2004. They hand-craft all of the Fawnridge wines with particular care in keeping quality high at an affordable price. Their tasting area is located inside the winery for a very personal look at the winery. Fawnridge Winery is dog-friendly and also has a picnic area.
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.
