Mount Aukum Winery Description

Within the sub-appellation of Fair Play, Mount Aukum uses its own hillside vineyards as well as sourcing fruit from the same growers who nurtured the explosion of Zinfandel's fame in the Sierra foothills. Winemaker Michel Prod'hon has the soul of a "garagiste" with the solid foundation of winemaking skills learned from the ground up, and backs his signature El Dorado County Zinfandel with a changing kaleidoscope of superb single varietal Rhone offerings made one hundred and sixty cases at a time.
From the Tasting Room, enjoy the panoramic views that extend from Mount Diablo and the Sacramento skyline to the West and to the Lake Tahoe Sierras to the East.

Great Winery and Views
Fliguy, Tracy
One of the best views in the area and always a friendly place to visit each time with my wife and friend's. All the wines are great but the Zins are the best I've every had. I bought a case of futures of 08 Sierra Foothills Zin and my friend's say I shouldn't share it, but I do. It's that DAM GOOD.
