I recently visited Fawnridge to try some of their wines. My favorites were the 2009 Sauvignon Blanc (I purchased), the 2006 Old Vine Zin, and the 2007 Primitivo. I have to tell you also about the Port (non-vintage). It was quite possibly the best port I have had in a long time, and I am not even much of a port drinker. If you are anywhere near Sacramento and enjoy wine, you should make a point to visit Fawnridge soon. Places that produce wine like this make me really proud of our local wines. I was very pleased I stopped into Fawnridge and I think it's one of the Placer County Wine Trail's best.
Stewart and Stephanie Perry have been avid wine lovers for thirty years. After living in North Lake Tahoe for 15 years, they moved to Auburn in 1989. Upon learning that local grape growers were bringing back the grape and wine industry as it was during the historic Placer County Gold Rush era, they decided to develop vineyards on their property. With the help of their friends, they planted Barbera and Syrah in the summer of 2002. Stewart and Stephanie are personally involved in every aspect of the vineyard management and winemaking process.
