High Elevation Estate Mountain Vineyards Grown In Unique Volcanic Soil

Red & White Wines from Estate Mountain Vineyards

Lava Cap is a third-generation family farm located in Placerville high in the Sierra Nevada foothills at an elevation of 2700 feet. Our estate mountain-grown grapes are sourced from some of the highest vineyards

in California. Our unique volcanic soils, weathered from ancient ash flows, produce wines that are intensely aromatic and luscious with deep, rich fruit erupting with flavor.
