The setting of this family vineyard & winery, located on historic and scenic Highway 49, offers a relaxing stop along your adventure. A welcoming smile from Harold or Kris Casto is just the start of this inviting stop on your travels. All you need to add to this experience is their cozy tasting room with wine barrel furniture, fun art work, and free wine tasting. Harold & Kris will tell you their wine-making story and will want to hear about your experiences. Taste their Zinfandel, Zinfandel Port and Cabernet Sauvigon; all hearty, flavorful Mariposa Sierra Foothill wines.
Bring your lunch and enjoy it in the shade of oak trees, play a game of bocci ball, watch the free range chickens searching for their lunch or just relax. Walk through the vineyard with Kris to talk about the rewards of growing and maintaining agriculture or talk with Harold about being a part of centuries old traditions of wine-making.
Hours Open: Friday & Saturday noon to 4 or by appointment for complimentary tastings
Seasons Open: All year, except Holidays.
