General Info

We are a Winery Direct Joint Tasting Room focused on providing an exceptional educational wine tasting experience and the ability to purchase directly from the wineries. We are described as the perfect and very cool wine tasting location located on the original level of Old Sacramento.

We currently host two award winning Sierra Foothill wineries. We offer a small selection of high quality gourmet foods that pair very well with the wines available and a top designer that will create an incredible custom wine gift basket that is sure to impress upon your friends how much you care about them.

The tasting room is designed for those consumers that appreciate and love high quality wines, food pairing recommendations, direct access to wineries and want a different experience than a wine bar.

Two local wineries; Fenton Herriott Vineyards & Rendez-vous Winery share the tasting room. Fenton Herriott Vineyards has been in business since 2003 and is located in the Sierra Foothills in the El Dorado County AVA & Rendez-vous Winery is located in Clarksburg  just south of Sacramento.  The orchestrated combination of these two boutique wineries offers consumers a wide selection of very high quality,  award winning, red, white & dessert wines and two totally different wine making styles.

The Joint Tasting Room concept is intended to provide customers an introduction and access to boutique Northern California Wineries from various appellations so they can compare the different wine regions, the difference in the wines from those regions, the difference in the characteristics from the same wines from different regions, vineyards and experience different winemaking techniques. The tasting room provides an excellent opportunity for smaller wineries to economically market their wine directly to the consumer and educate the customer on the things that make them different from the other California wineries. We want this to be about the customer experience and we are always looking to improve so please feel free to provide feedback directly to our employees.

We can ship your orders just about anywhere in the United States but some restrictions apply and it depends on availability. Wine sells out…
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. Wine is about friends.
