Truckee River Winery

Truckee River Winery

Truckee River Winery was established 23 years ago with the vision of sourcing quality grapes, bringing the fruit to Truckee in order to take advantage of the high elevation and cold temperatures to naturally cool the fermentation and slow down the barrel aging process. Thus becoming the highest and coldest winery. Our focus from the beginning has been to produce handcrafted wines with great structure and finesse. Our award winning Pinot Noir is the winemaker’s pride and joy.
In 1989, Russ and Joan Jones began making wine in their 2-car garage. For 9 years they made great wine for their friends and family in the area, and decided to expand. They moved the winery into a two story barn on the river, where they could make 1,000 cases, with the help of their daughter and friends. Two years ago they opened a tasting facility, so that locals and visitors of Truckee could come and enjoy their wine and hard work. They currently have 8 varietals; an Eldorado County Pinot Gris, a Russian River Valley Chardonnay, a Red Table Wine, a Nevada County Merlot, an Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel, a Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir from Santa Lucia Highlands, Reserve Pinot from Garys’ Vineyard labeled Best Man, and a Apres dessert wine.
