About Us

OUR STORY In 1958 my parents fell in love with a parcel of land near Groveland with its majestic views of Yosemite. Their dream was to build a home there, surrounded by the grandeur of the Sierras. Fifty years later, my wife and I returned to make their dream a reality.

Located just outside of Groveland, CA, that land is now the site of our family's home and the location of our distinctive vineyard and our family-owned winery. It is land that we have grown to love and hope to maintain as a family treasure for decades to come. Ron & Cheryl Harms
