About Black Sheep Winery...

Black Sheep Winery arrived in Murphys with the 1984 harvest. Our founders Janis and David Olson crushed their first Zinfandel, with assistance from current owner and winemaker, Steve Millier. The wine was styled in a big, bold way like nobody else could do. That's what makes us Black Sheep; we're different from the rest of the flock.

In 2007 David and Janis decided to retire and ride their bicycles into the sunset, they decided to turn over the Black Sheep legacy to their good friends Steve and Liz Millier. Having been involved with Black Sheep wines from the start the Millier family are very familiar with the Black Sheep style, and are excited to carry on the tradition.

Zinfandel is the bedrock of what we're about, and we currently produce a Calaveras County and an Amador County Zinfandel.  Over the years we have expanded our offerings to include Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon,  Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and our True Frog's Lily Pad line of table wines.

We welcome guests daily from 11:00 to 5:00. Come on in and sample our delicious wines!
