Element 79 Vineyards is a small family-owned winery. Our 70-acre estate property is located in the highly aclaimed Fair Play AVA at 2400 feet elevation in the Sierra Highlands. Cool breezes from the Sierra Nevada combined with our high elevation and mountainous terrain create the perfect conditions for growing the finest grapes. Our soil of decomposed granite are sandy loam classified with excellent drainage and are ideal for the grapes they support. As an estate winery, we grow all the grapes used to produce our wines within our own vineyard which means we control our quality from budbreak to bottle.
Our mission is to employ the best farming practices to grow the highest quality grapes and produce premium estate-grown single varietal and blended wines.
