Lone Buffalo Vineyards

7505 Wise Road
Auburn, CA 95603


Open: Year Round

The buffalo's power and resilience in the face of encroaching civilization symbolizes hope and renewal for humanity and harmony among all people.  Here in the Sierra foothills, Lone Buffalo Vineyards symbolizes this same hope and renewal with its contribution to the re-emergence of the wine-making tradition in Placer County.

Lone Buffalo Vineyards offers premium wines hand-crafted by a seasoned winemaker in the ambiance and with the down-to-earth attitude of a small boutique winery.

Family owned and operated, Phil Maddux, owner, winemaker, and the "Lone Buffalo's" inspiration, has been an award winning home winemaker for over 40+ years.

Visit our new tasting room and winery facility in North Auburn right in the middle of the The Placer County Wine Trail . Enjoy a picnic al fresco with beautiful views of the countryside and newly planted vineyards or saddle up to the tasting bar in our rustic but well appointed tasting room.

At Lone Buffalo, we emphasize food-friendly, Rhône-style estate produced wines with a twist of cowboy and old west philosophy -- let nature do the work and be a good and careful caretaker. 

LBV wines are available for tasting and purchase at the winery and at many Placer County and Lake Tahoe retail outlets and restaurants.
