Long Creek Winery is a boutique winery encompassing thirty acres neatly tucked away in the Sierra Foothills within a stone's throw of massive Lake Oroville, seventy miles north of Sacramento, California. The vineyards and winery are uniquely situated on the western side of the Sierra mountain range where the four seasons are relatively mild. The vineyards enjoy a micro-climate that is comparable to some of the hillside country of central and northern Italy. The winery's close proximity to Lake Oroville with its 177 mile shoreline and 15,000 surface acres of water tempers the long hot days in the summer with gentle evening breezes giving the grapes a long growing season maximizing sugar and tannin development. Within this unique micro-climate the grapes enjoy the right combination of soil, sun, wind and water (the French call it "terroir"). This beautiful combination produces grapes of deep color, balanced acidity, soft tannins and intense fruit flavors. The water to irrigate the vineyards is crystal clear Read more »

  • The history of Zinfandel in America can be traced back to Italian Immigrants who planted it all over California for a number of reasons including its hearty nature. For that reason it was also the dominant choice of home winemakers in other parts of the country who were purchasing grapes shipped east from California.  For years it was thought th... Read More

  • Hello! I am heading to Napa/Sonoma soon and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for transporting wine home.  I'd rather not check in my luggage but it doesn't appear that there are easy options to ship all your wine (except from each winery separately). Any suggestions?  Also, once I'm back from the trip, are there any good online ma... Read More
