Tiger Lily Winery returns to Pleasant Valley

Tiger Lily winery was the first Pleasant Valley Winery in Gold Mining times.  It started in the mid 1850’s and was a leading winery in the 1860s to 1880’s.  Unfortunately, it burned down in the mid 1890’s and it is not known if the winery was ever rebuilt.

John MacCready wanted to preserve Pleasant Valley wine history and decided to use the Tiger Lily name for special selections of Sierra Vista wine. 

Join them to sample the newly released 2009 Tiger Lily Outlaw and a pre-release tasting of the 2010 Tiger Lily Outlaw on Saturday, Augutst 23rd, from 11a.m. to 4p.m. The winery is located at 4560 Cabernet Way in Placerville.

Bill Gray from the county museum will be there with Tiger Lily history from the gold mining days.  Bill will also be displaying his gold collection and gold history from this area.

They will barrel taste the 2011 Ancient Vine Reserve Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon that are being bottled at the end of August. These wines have received their final blending eliminating the risk of barrel variation for the taster.

Kathleen from Capital Sierra Catering will be there with her Burger Bar.  Cost for a burger with all the trimmings is $10 per person.   Wine club members $5.00 per person – 4 per wine membership.  RSVP to or 530-622-7221.  Reservations close August 19th.
