El Dorado - I Rombauer Vineyards I Napa Valley

El Dorado

El Dorado, Sierra Foothills | 150 acres

Fish Friendly Farming Certified

Having purchased grapes from El Dorado in the past, Koerner Rombauer jumped at the chance to own this dramatic, high-elevation (1,650 feet) site in the Sierra Foothills when it came up for sale in 2010. The vineyard needed much work, but two years and hundreds of labor hours later, it produced the grapes — and wine — Koerner knew it was capable of. The vineyard is a source for three of our Zinfandels, as well as one of our dessert wines.
