Auriga Cellars

Auriga Cellars

Auriga Wine Cellars is located in El Dorado County in Northern California. “Auriga” is the ancient Greek and Roman name of a constellation in the Northern hemisphere and is commonly referred to as the “charioteer.”
In ancient times, Auriga was associated with the nurse of Zeus. When Zeus grew up, he rewarded the nurse with a horn endowing it with magical properties, so that whosoever possessed it should obtain in abundance all he desired and find it a “horn of plenty.” The Horn of Plenty, is a symbol of abundance, fruitfulness and prosperity, and is represented by a horn filled to overflowing with fruits and flowers. The Greek lantern depicted on the wine label is a reproduction of lanterns used in ancient times. We feel it is a fitting symbol of the Charioteer and Auriga and this legend.
Auriga wines are made from Sierra Foothill vineyards. This is the historic location of vineyards, which supplied the gold miners (49ers) with wine in the last century. The soils in the foothills are thin and the vines have to struggle to survive, resulting in intense concentrated wines.
