Fife Vineyards is a small, family-operated winery producing wines that express their terroir and a European sensibility. They are food-friendly wines based on red Bordeaux, Rhône and Zinfandel varietals. We strive to avoid over-ripeness, excess oak and high alcohol, which we believe would mask the unique terroir driven flavors of our wines. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • I'm planning to travel to Cali and on this trip I'm not looking for the famous wineries that everyone knows about and is always jam packed with people and tourists. I want an intimate setting, something off the road, where I'll be given some attention and be able to chat and enjoy my wine instead of being rushed. Any good suggestions from those ... Read More

  • Fife Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District Reserve 1995
