We are called to leave this land healthier and happier for future generations through dedicated sustainability in our vineyard and wine making practices. With practices such as conscientious water management, integrating native plants, and rotating cover crop, the vineyards thrive with life and become a home to the local flora and fauna. As you walk through our vineyards you will hear the rustle of the old oaks lining the property and the buzzing of the bees collecting pollen from our cover crop.
After over 100 years of farming the Clarksburg region, we have seen first-hand that great wine begins in a sustainable vineyard. With each year we gain more knowledge of our land, the vines, and the unique characteristics of the wine they produce. We strive to make the vineyards better through research and sustainability certification with Protected Harvest to produce the best wine in California
To enhance our sustainability practices we have built a lasting partnership with the Wildlife Case Association of Sacramento and provide habitat for rehabilitated owls. If you are lucky enough to be there in the last moments before sunset, you may even see an owl flying low to the ground looking for dinner to feed her young owlets, snuggled safe and cozy in an owl box lining the vineyard.
The Clarksburg wine appellation is surrounded by the cooling waterways of the Sacramento River Delta and rich farmland to make the picturesque setting of Heringer Estates Vineyards and Winery. Weighted drawbridges and swing bridges give access to the lush vineyards nestled among family farms that have been settled for generations. The northern appellation border parallels the town of Freeport, while the southern border runs along Twin Cities Road, extending to the Sacramento Deep Water Channel. Warm summer days and cool breezy nights represent the climate in the Clarksburg wine appellation.
