Lava cap offers a great variety of wines. Be sure and bring a picnic (try Dedricks cheeses in downtown Placerville) basket because the winery has a fantastic patio/deck, where you can picnic after you taste and get your favorite wine to go with your picnic.

We heard and read so many good things about Lava Cap Winery that this made our short list of wineries to go to in the area. So glad we went here. The wines were very good, the service was excellent and the view was just amazing! If you're in the area this should be one of the wineries you visit.

Good views. Great wine tasting. Price of tasting used toward purchase if you buy. No appointment was necessary. Nice patio area. We purchased a nice cheese basket there to enjoy for lunch,

I have been a member for 10 years, I continue to enjoy their increasing selection of wines. I am partial to reds, but I enjoy their sauvignon blanc. My all-time favorites: Petite syrah, grenache & sangiovese...my new favorite is a blend: nuee ardente. Their prices are very reasonable for good wine, and the folks that pour are always VERY courteous and informative. Buy or bring some snacks and enjoy a lovely view on the patio along with your favorite tasting.
