truckee river winery imageEstablished 24 years ago, Russ and Joan Jones began Truckee River Winery by making wine in their 2-car garage with the vision of sourcing quality grapes and bringing the fruit to Truckee in order to take advantage of the high elevation and cold temperatures to naturally cool the fermentation and slow down the barrel aging process. For 9 years they made great wine for their friends and family in the area and finally decided to expand. They moved the winery into a two story barn on the Truckee River where they could make 1,000 cases, with the help of their daughter and friends.

Four years ago they opened a tasting facility so that locals and visitors of Truckee could come and enjoy their wine and hard work. They have evolved into a fun, high quality winery dedicated to preserving the local environment and providing a quality product for locals and tourists alike. Their focus from the very beginning has been to produce handcrafted wines with great structure and finesse and their award winning Pinot Noir is the winemaker’s pride and joy.
