Synapse Wines is an award-winning, microwinery in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California,  and is owned and operated by two families, the Giniers and the Knutzons.  Synapse wines are unique, delicious, and pair well with family, friends, and good conversation. We planted 6 acres of Syrah with the initial intention of growing and selling grapes.We've expanded from our original 'syrah-only' vineyard to include other varietals.  We also have mourvedre, grenache, petite sirah, zinfandel and viognier in the field.  Some we use for blending, others are made into their own vintages.Relax and enjoy a tasting flight or glass of estate-grown wine in our unique urban tasting room at the historic Cary House Hotel in downtown Placerville. Open evenings with live music on weekends.
