General Info

The Underground Tasting Room provides an exceptional educational wine tasting experience and the ability to purchase wine directly from Fenton Herriott Vineyards. We are located on the original level of Old Sacramento. This is our second tasting room. Our Fenton Herriott Vineyards is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills, a 45-minute drive from Oldtown Sacramento. This area has been used for farming for well over 150 years. The Mediterranean climate of this area combining warm summer nights and hot summer days with free-draining volcanic soils is especially ideal for grape growing and allows us to produce the quality fruit needed for our complex, delicately-balanced and full-bodied wines.

The Underground Tasting Room is designed for those consumers who appreciate and love high-quality wines, food pairing recommendations, direct access to wineries and want a different experience than a wine bar. We offer a selection of high-quality charcuteries that pair very well with our fine wines.

As a family-owned winery, Fenton Herriott is intimately involved in every part of the vintner process – vineyard and vine maintenance, grape crush, fermentation, barrel ageing, bottling, and packaging. To provide a broader selection of wines to our customers, we supplement our harvest with other hand selected grapes grown from quality vineyards here in the El Dorado foothills. All of our wines are being made “by hand” which is both a time consuming and an exacting task, yet truly something we love to do. We are confident that you will love the wines as much as we do.

We can ship your orders just about anywhere in the United States but some restrictions apply and it depends on availability. Please be sure and order early for the holidays! Ask about our wine club discounts and the special VIP treatments and advanced event tickets afforded wine club members.
