Overlooking the sheer American River Canyon below, the steeply terraced Jodar vineyard is located near the edge of El Dorado National Forest at 2,400 feet elevation. Jodar Vineyards is located off the Carson Road exit from Hwy 50 in the heart of Apple Hill.
The Jodar family literally blasted the vineyard from the granite hillside in 1985 to launch a journey, which is still in progress.
In the spring of 1986 the task of carving terraces in the steep and rocky terrain was completed, and a small army of friends and relatives was recruited to plant the first 4,200 vines.
Please check winery website for days and hours of operation.
