Wine Tree Farm is a very small winery, set on the hill overlooking the north end of the Sutter Creek Bypass, on Hwy 49. The first thing you notice is that the tasting room is rather dim. There’s one little bulb, located way up high in the middle of the room. And if the connecting door to the winery is open, you’ll notice that the winery itself is in darkness. Electricity is a rare and precious commodity at Wine Tree Farm. You’ll soon realize that you are in the first completely solar-powered winery in California, and the only one that is totally off the grid.

Each year between harvest and prepping the next season she gets in a little R&R while conducting interactive wine blending classes...

Corinne proved to be a masterful blender as well as a patient teacher with warmth and wit.
In the entertainment department she’s a class act.  ~ Donald Church
