Great Wines

Sierra Foothills Wine (mostly)

Located in historic Fiddletown CA. South Slope Wines is dedicated to the art of making and pouring premium artisan wines primarily from the Sierra Foothills AVA although we won't pass up the perfect grape regardless of AVA (check out our St. Helena Napa Cab Rosé below).  We focus on single varietal wines so we can provide a true look at the unique characteristics of each varietal without blending out their distinctive attributes. We welcome you to visit our tasting room in Fiddletown, off the beaten path for sure, but well worth it!


Charcuterie

Call us nuts but we tend to think all wines are better enjoyed with fruit, meats and of course nuts! Small complimentary plates for all wine tasters and larger more involved plates for Club members provided.

Mount Aukum hand picked fruit. This little known Portuguese grape has a fabulous intensity with strawberry, raspberry, spice, pepper and floral bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a supple, elegant texture and a seamless, lengthy finish. This wows with its purity and finesse-driven style more than for weight or richness, and it should evolve nicely given its overall balance.
