About Us 


Karmere's sixty-seven (67) acres of estate grown vines are grown in the rich Sierra Nevada decomposed granite soils of Amador county on gentle slopes of 1300 feet to 1600 feet elevation. The combination of well managed vines and well drained hillsides restricts vigor producing two (2) to (4) tons of grapes per acre. The cool summer nights and hot days are ideal for producing robust red wines.
