Aloria Vineyards

Aloria Vineyards

Following their dreams, Rob and Sheri Hendriks, left the rush of High Tech and planted themselves in vineyards of gold. Renamed Aloria, we were inspired by the beauty, the quiet and the diversity of the rolling hills above New Malones Reservoir. We haven’t looked back, even when times got tough, and we move forward with our intention of leaving this place nurtured and unharmed as we possibly can. With that intention, we are very proud to announce that Aloria Vineyards is a newly certificated California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance Certified Vineyard!

Dalton Vineyard

Dalton Vineyard

Dalton Vineyard was founded in 2001 by Jim Dalton, inspired by his daughter’s words, “Dad, you loved two things in life, gardening and wine. Why don’t you go out and start a vineyard or something.” Jim worked hard and bulldozed over 30 acres of land at the turn of the century to make his vision a reality. By 2005, the vineyard’s syrah had been made into an award-winning wine at the California state fair (double gold).

Desmond Estate Vineyards

Desmond Estate Vineyards

Early in 2000, Bill was looking for something to keep himself “outta trouble” and realized grape growing could be just the thing. Our property is located on Starr Road – home to some very notable vineyards – and Bill knew he could follow their lead. So, with every intention of selling the grapes to local winemakers, Bill sold his Harley, bought a fork lift, and planted the vineyard. He made the fatal mistake of crushing our first crop to produce a barrel for us at home!
