Wines of the Sierra Foothills

Welcome to Yosemite Cellars

Thirteen years ago we began a journey to grow wine grapes and produce wine from an untested area of the Sierra Foothills at 3000' elevation. Located in Groveland, California, Yosemite Cellars offers wines made exclusively from our estate vineyard located near the scenic grandeur of Yosemite National Park. Take a tour of our web site and familiarize yourself with our vineyard, our wines and us!

Getting to Yosemite Cellars


From downtown Groveland - go east on Hwy 120 and turn left on Ferretti Road. Continue on Ferretti Road for approximately 6 miles. Turn right on Punch Bowl Road (there is also a Yosemite Cellars sign) and follow signs to the winery. Access to Yosemite Cellars via Punch Bowl Road is on narrow private roads that are both paved and gravel. Please drive slowly on the gravel roads to keep the dust to a minimum - our neighbors and their animals thank you!

From the Yosemite area - travel on Hwy 120 headed toward Groveland. Go right on Ferretti Road for approximately 4 miles. Punch Bowl Road will be on your left.

Ron and Cheryl are wonderful hosts and have a beautiful vineyard and outdoor tasting space. As we were leaving I told my Mom, ‘I love wineries that have wines that I expect to taste a certain way and they don’t.’ That describes every wine we tasted at Yosemite Cellars. Every year of the Firefall blends offered totally different tastes. And the Rose and Tannat are wines I could drink all day (unfortunately).
