Come on up to our Tahoe tasting room! Our friendly staff will help you search out some of Tahoe's hidden must-see gems and will provide recommendations for restaurants with waived corkage fees on Picchetti wines. Located on Hwy 50 at San Jose Ave (just past the El Dorado Beach boat ramp), the address is 3135 Harrison Avenue.

The neighborhood can be busy with beach goers at this time of year, but there is ample parking in our big private parking lot located behind the tasting room.

A chorus of popping corks signaled the beginning of this year's harvest, as our vineyard crews delivered 3 tons of Pinot Noir grapes (from the Krause Vineyard in Los Altos Hills) and 2.5 tons of Chardonnay (from the Boyd Vineyard on Montebello) that will become Picchetti's 2012 Santa Cruz Mountains sparkling wine. Grapes used for making "bubbly" are harvested several weeks ahead of those crushed for still wines, because they can be picked at lower sugar levels. After two years of very mild summers, 2012 has been a dream season for California's wine growers, producing abundant canopies, large clusters of grapes, and great optimism for a spectacular vintage. Declaring the commencement of the harvest season, our winemaker, Aimee Baker, ceremonially whacked off the top of a bottle of bubbly from our 2011 vintage with a curved-edge saber (a tradition that dates back to Napoleonic times), and poured the foaming contents over the freshly harvested grapes. Stay tuned for further updates on this bountiful harvest and new wine releases!

Last week's storm dropped five feet of fresh snow in the mountains. If you're planning to dust the cobwebs off your ski gear and frolic in this Winter Wonderland, drop by our South Lake Tahoe tasting room and let Cameron know that you saw his recent interview on Tahoe Tonight!
