Vine Cliff Winery Caves
All of Vine Cliff?s wine is aged in underground tunnels or caves. From 1991 to the year 2000 the wine was aged in the stone cellar, originally built by Chinese laborers in 1871, and in the fifty-foot long concrete-lined tunnel constructed in 1990 that connects the Winery to the old cellar.
The year 2000 saw the completion of 15,000 square feet of tunnels carved out of the Vine Cliff canyon rock, just across the drive from the winery. These tunnels have a twelve-foot diameter bore and have been carved into the hill in a ladder configuration. The entrance portal gives access to the 260 foot long right tunnel, which is connected to the 200 foot long parallel left tunnel by five 100 foot cross tunnels.
These caves have racking facilities and can accommodate approximately 1500 - 2000 barrels of wine. The climate will be naturally maintained at a constant 60 degrees F., with about 60% humidity year round.
Additionally, carved out of the volcanic Tufa and Basalite rock, between the first and second cross tunnel, a 50 foot long by 18 foot wide by 30 foot high function room has been created. This will provide the winery with ample space to seat fifty guests at a winemaker?s dinner or other events.
The winery is open, by appointment only, for tours and tastings, seven days a week, from 10am to 5pm. Please call Vine Cliff at 707-944-2388 to arrange an unparalleled tour and tasting.
