Located at 1300 feet in the Sierra Foothills, our El Dorado County winery produces fine wines under the David Girard label.

The beautiful 85 acre vineyard property bears mature fruit native to the great Rhone Valley. With these extraordinary grapes and winemaking expertise, David Girard Vineyards produces finely balanced wines reminiscent of those found in Southern France.

Although the Rhone style wines are a focus, a limited amount of classic Bordeaux varietals are also available.

We invite every wine enthusiast to visit our vineyard, enjoy the scenery, and taste our exceptional wines.
