Trinity County Vineyards and Local Wine Tasting

Quickly becoming a regional hub for award winning wines, Trinity County features a
number of quality vineyards and wines.   All of these vineyards feature wine tasting at different
times.  Please contact them directly for details.
Alpen Cellars
Alpen Cellars, established on a family ranch in the spring of 1984, is situated in a picturesque mountain valley at the foot of towering craggy peaks in the rugged Trinity Lake region of Trinity County, California.  The combination of high elevation and favorable microclimate produces ideal conditions for growing early maturing vinifera grapes such as White Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the four varieties to which the ranch vineyard is planted. We also feature two additional varietals, Pinot Gris and Merlot, which are grown in select sites elsewhere in Trinity County.

Butter Creek Ranch Vineyards
Located in the Hyampom Valley these folks produce a wonderful Chardonney and one of the best Pinot Noir's we've tasted.  They also have small plantings of Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and Viognier. A boutique vinyard, Butter Creek is managed primarily by hand without using herbicides or pesticides and they only use natural fertilizers.  Harvesting usually occurs from mid-September to mid-October.  A rental cottage is also available for guests on the property.

Meredith Family Vineyards

"Meredith Family Vineyards is family owned and operated and focuses on producing rich, smooth, drinkable wines.  The first vines were planted in 1986 on the hillsides of the historical Olsen Homestead in the Hyampom valley, located in the coastal mountains of Northern California.  Warm
days, cold nights, mountain soils, and low fruit yeilds conspire to render small berries with scant juice and intense flavors from vines tended and picked by hand."

Meredith Family Vineyards also features a Wine Tasting room in downtown historic Weaverville.

One Maple Winery

One Maple, established in 1998, was originally a mere dream and hobby for Ernie and Kristel Bell, evolving into a full-time family affair with the opening of Trinity County's newest winery and tasting room in July, 2006.
