Nestled in the heart of the Sierra Foothills, Rockslide Vineyards is a family-owned winery that produces premium wines using sustainable farming practices and traditional winemaking techniques. The vineyards are situated on steep hillsides that are prone to rockslides, hence the name of the winery. While this terrain makes it challenging to farm, it also contributes to the unique character of their wines, which are known for their intense flavors and firm tannins.
Their winemakers are committed to crafting wines that reflect the terroir of the region, and they take a hands-on approach to every step of the winemaking process. From pruning the vines to barrel aging, they carefully oversee every aspect of production to ensure that the wines are of the highest quality. Rockslide specializes in Rhône varietals, such as Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, as well as Zinfandel and Barbera, all of which thrive in the region's warm, dry climate.
