Located in Somerset, E16 Winery is built into a hillside vineyard along a wooded creek with a charming footbridge and shaded terrace. We offer unique visitor experiences with the relaxed charm of El Dorado County in a tasting room and a subterranean cavern. The wines of two distinct brands are served at both venues.
E16 Pinot Noirs and Chardonnay (all rated 90 pts or more) are sourced from the Russian River Valley and Bennett Valley in Sonoma County, Anderson Valley in Mendocino County, and the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County.
Firefall Syrah and Grenache Blanc are sourced from grapes grown on our mountain vineyard in the Fair Play AVA. The property is located five miles south of Somerset and above the middle fork of the Cosumnes River where the growing season is marked by warm, dry conditions.
Front Tasting Room
First-time visitors and returning guests alike receive first-class treatment from hosts who enjoy sharing their enthusiasm for anything and everything about wine. This is the only tasting room in the area offering critically acclaimed pinot noir and chardonnay from the North Coast as well as wines made from locally grown grapes.
Private Cave Tastings
For guests in search of more pampering, we offer salon-style tastings in a subterranean wine cave. Enjoy critically acclaimed wines and an atmosphere of casual elegance in conjunction with the sights, smells and flavors of barrel room inspiration.
