Capay Valley Vineyards has been producing wine since 1998 and is responsible for the Capay Valley having its own American Viticultural Area designation. The vineyard produces several wines, including Viognier, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sparkling Viognier, and Sparkling Tempranillo.
The signature grape for the winery is Viognier, planted in 1998 when it was not widely known. Now it is the basis for “Yolo County Champagne”.
The winery has added new sparkling equipment to their production. All wines are estate, meaning they grow the grapes, produce the base wine, and ferment the sparkling all on site. The process used is the Charmat method which lends itself to a crisp, clean, less yeasty product. They are the newest of very few such producers in the U.S.
The winery continues to produce a limited amount of your favorite still wines.The tasting room is located at 13757 State Highway 16, Brooks, CA and is open Sat/Sun 1-5. Visit their websiteshare
