Ayrael Vieux is nestled in a small valley in the historic gold country of the Sierra Foothills. 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.
The Ayrael Vieux tasting room is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5pm — or by appointment for free vineyard tours and wine tasting.
