Sacramento, CA 95816

Revolution Wines produces wine under their own label using locally grown grapes from Clarksburg and Sacramento and Amador counties, generally from within 50 miles of their facility. Grapes are brought to Revolution where they are processed, aged, bottled in their wine cellar and sold at their wine tasting bistro at the same location. Only natural fermentation methods are used. Classes in wine tasting and tours of their wine-making operation are offered onsite to enhance understanding of the importance of locally-grown and made wine. One of their sources, Gandy Hill Vineyards in Elk Grove uses no herbicides or pesticides and the zinfandel grapes used by Revolution are dry farmed. All their wine grape waste is recycled with an offsite company that, in turn, distributes the waste to be converted to grape seed oil, compost and biofuel. Some of the pomace they generate is returned to vineyards for mulch. All their kegs are green.
