Over 300,000 vines produce a diverse selection of grape varieties. Del Rio produces premium estate wines and is a key supplier for fine winemakers. The rocky south facing slopes of the vineyard drain well and provide excellent terrain for producing premium wine grapes.
Del Rio Vineyards is fortunate to have the climate and terrain to support an extensive collection of wine grape varieties. We exercise great care in the selection of our varieties. The varieties we currently have in production are listed below. Winemakers interested in acquiring grapes from our 2017 harvest should contact us soon.
Our talented Vineyard Crew works meticulously to bring the best fruit from our vines.
Rob Wallace grew up in the Northern California town of Arbuckle, about 70 miles north of Sacramento. He is the fourth generation of his family to farm the land, growing wheat, rice, tomatoes, and vegetables. He produced a commodity on a very large scale. When Lee Traynham asked him to manage Del Rio in 2000, Rob was intrigued by the challenge and change, so along with his wife Jolee, son’s Jason & Clayton, and daughter Fallon, the Wallace’s moved to Gold Hill.
