A solar powered winery
In the late '90s Sierra Vista was the first winery in the El Dorado AVA to install photovoltaic solar panels at the winery.  A 14.4kw system was installed on the roof of the winery and reduced energy consumption from the grid by around 94% in the first month after it was fully operational.  We are proud to have done this before it became politically correct.  We are an eco-friendly winery.

Sierra Vista practices Sustainable Agriculture in its Vineyards.
Many years ago when we saw that erosion was taking place in the vineyard we started practicing sustainable agriculture by implementing methods to stop the erosion.  Since then we have developed methods in other areas of farming to allow us to be considered a sustainable agricultural operation.Click here for more details.

Sierra Vista has been certified sustainable by the Fish Friendly Farming Verification Program and is privileged to use the FFF logo.  The FFF certification team approved of all our sustainable practices. 

Fish Friendly Farming is the project of the California Land Stewardship Institute that is dedicated to encouraging farmers to improve the environmental stewardship of their farmland.
 

 


Sierra Vista Winery produces  Rhone Style wines from Syrah (Shiraz), Rousanne and Viognier. Because of our varied micro- climates due to the mountain terrain we also have suitable terroir for Mourvedre, Cinsault and Grenache.     Our first plantings in 1974, 1976, 1979 and 1982 were Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah and Chardonnay.  These vines were planted on their own roots, that is they were not grafted onto rootstock.  Check out the vineyard page for a discussion of own rooted vines.

THERE IS NO GRAPE THAT IS MORE TRUE TO THE VARIETAL THAN THOSE FROM OWN ROOTED VINES                               jmm 2011
