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”).
