Our Story:

Ken Deaver stoops his broad shoulders to uncork a bottle of Zinfandel, wearing his trade-mark denims and cowboy hat, and you soon learn that Ken knows his wines. And his grapes.

A drive over Deaver's 300 acres will take you past 140-year-old Zinfandel vines and eight acres of Mission vines, so called because they were brought from Mexico by the Jesuits and Franciscans. The Deaver mission vines were planted around 1854 by Ken Deaver's great grandfather John A. Davis. His son, Ken's grandfather, planted the Zinfandel two decades later.

For years, the Deaver's "old vine" grapes were sold exclusively to home winemakers. The first vintage of Deaver Vineyards Zinfandel was bottled under the "Lakeshore" label in 1985.

Since then, Deaver Vineyards has become recognized the world over for its velvety Zinfandels. The Tuscan-style climate of Amador county is also perfect for producing classic Sangiovese, Barbera, and rich Ports.
