Winemaking

Rendez-vous Winery proudly specializes in using only local Clarksburg, CA appellation fruit.  We ferment, age, and bottle all of our small lot wines on site at the historic Old Sugar Mill. 

Our winemaker Larry started the winery off in 2011 by acquiring Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Grenache, Primitivo, and Petite Sirah from all Clarksburg vineyards.  Since then, he’s added Muscat, Dolcetto, Tempranillo, and Malbec to the repertoire.  Larry loves to push the norm and always adds his unique signature wine making twists…ask anyone who’s tried the infamous Rendez-Rouge red blend!


All the wines at Rendez-vous Winery are hand crafted and made in small lots.   Most of the wines are exposed to some oak during fermentation.  The Chardonnay and all the reds receive significant French oak exposure during the aging process.  We can’t tell you much past that because our wine maker has some magic secrets!

We bottle our wines multiple times throughout the year as they become ready.  Three times a year, we host entertaining pickup parties that highlight the best qualities of our new releases and current favorites by pairing them with tantalizing bites.  For more information, check out our Club de Vin or contact us directly.
