Cline Family Cellars

Cline cellars was founded in 1982 by Fred Cline in Oakley, California where Cline owns and controls 300 acres of some of the oldest surviving vines in California. Today, Zinfandel, Carignane and Mourvèdre produced from these vines are some of the most unique and historic wines made in California. In 1991, the winery relocated from Oakley to the Carneros region of Sonoma County on a historic 350-acre estate with new vineyards and facilities. Cline Cellars farms the Green String way - naturally and sustainably and avoid chemical pesticides, fungicides, and fertilizers that are generally used in everyday farming. We believe we utilize the most efficient methods towards retaining healthy vineyards by employing the use of organic cover crops, compost teas, crushed volcanic rock and oyster shell, natural mined sulfur and sheep grazing.
