Located on a gold-rush era vineyard homestead, Boeger Winery is one of the most historic and enchanting wineries in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The Boeger family is deeply tied to California wine history. Greg Boeger, a grandson of early Napa Valley pioneers, brought three generations of wine making know-how to El Dorado County when he and his wife, Sue, established the winery in 1972. Boeger Winery became the first commercial winery after prohibition. Alongside Greg, son Justin continues the family wine making tradition of pioneering unique varietals and artisan blends. Join us in our intimate tasting room and enjoy our historic grounds and beautiful gardens.

Boeger (and our tour leader, Alison) made our visit very special. We had a group of twenty women together for the weekend and this was one of our primary stops. Everything was perfect and we loved the tour and the outdoor seating. Thanks again!

Our trip to Boeger was enjoyable, relaxing and picturesque. Our guide, Allison did an amazing job of explaining the history of the winery and of the Boeger family, the various types of grapes and the overall wine making process. We loved the taste of the wine so much, we became club members. Would highly recommend!

My friends and I visited Boeger Winery last Saturday and took the Harvest Tour. The tour was the best I'v been on. Our guide Allison was wonderful; so welcoming and knowledgeable about the winery, its history and wine making process. We were able to see the fields, taste fresh grapes, taste fermenting unfiltered wine, saw various pieces of machinery in action,... We'll be back. Highly recommended!

We arrived as strangers with excitement for the experience. We left feeling like part of the family. Allison’s breadth of knowledge and radiant personality made the tour exceptional. She went out of her way to provide personalized touches all along the way (connecting us with Mr. Boeger in action)! We highly recommend other travelers to take advantage of this unique experience!
