Welcome to Alma de la Viña wines – “Soul of the Vineyard”. We have been on a wonderful journey over the last few years. Along the way, we have had the pleasure and privilege to discover Karmere Winery in Amador County, California, who unselfishly shared their knowledge and expertise in making fine wines. We enjoyed many successful years of a home wine making adventure, winning many awards along the way. Sharing a deep friendship and a passion for wine making, and with the encouragement and support of family and friends, we were able to achieve our dream of making our wines commercially.

We formed our own boutique wines and called it Alma de la Viña. Our name reflects our philosophy that great wine making starts in the vineyard. Our goal is to handcraft small batches of wine that showcase the character, unique flavors and textures of both the varietals and their regions.

In February 2011, we moved our operation to Estate Crush Winery, a custom crush facility located in Lodi, California. Estate Crush is dedicated to supporting us in making exceptional, premium wine. Many thanks go to Harmony Wynelands Winery (Lodi, California) who supported us during our first two years of wine making.

We are thankful for God’s many blessings and the support of family and friends who have encouraged us our journey. You are invited to join us and to share in our passion and enthusiasm. We hope you enjoy the results!
