Damiano Vineyard

Nestled in the Sierra Foothills town of Auburn, Damiano Vineyard is a father and son farming operation. The three and half acres of Viognier are some of the first fruit to come into the winery at harvest. The heat and higher elevation of the Sierra Foothills produces a tropical and floral viognier with plenty of depth and complexity.
