The wineries in Calaveras county are as diverse as the wines they create. Tasting rooms can be in barns, in store fronts, in basements, and there was once one in a cave! One thing is sure, though, that the tasting experience in Murphys, Vallecito, and Angels Camp will whet your appetite for more of this incredible county. We do produce your basic Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, your standby Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, but the winemakers here have also stretched their talents to making wines from many of the more exotic varietals, like Barbera and Tempranillo, Syrah and Sangiovese, Tesoro, Malvasia Bianca and Viognier, Zinfandel, Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Reserve Syrah. Our winemakers have produced Apricot Wine, Pour’it Tawny Granche (port), Syrah Port, Grand Cuvee Champagne, Raspberry Champagne, and even Almond Champagne.
We are a limited production, artisan vineyard and winery and all our wines are estate grown and produced. We have complete hands-on control of the vines and wine --- from bud break to bottling. Ayrael Vieux is committed to organic practices in the vineyard and winery. Our winemaking is a blend of California’s lush fruit flavors with old world elegance and style.
