ABOUT THE WINERY
Terra d’Oro owns 800 acres of vineyards across two regions: 500 in Amador County, which are spread across five ranches, each with its own unique defining characteristics, and 300 in the Clarksburg AVA. Every acre is sustainably farmed to ensure the current and future health of the vineyards and their surrounding environments.
All Terra d’Oro vineyards are tended with sustainable methods to maintain the health of the soils, water and ecosystem, ensuring the optimum health of the vines.
In addition to being sustainably farmed, two Amador vineyard blocks have been certified organic (CCOF) since the 1990s with another 43 acres to be certified organic by 2023. All Clarksburg vineyards are either CCOF certified or Lodi Rules sustainable farming certified.
