Terre Rouge and Easton Wines

Terre Rouge and Easton Wines

Terre Rouge refers to the vermillion color Granitic and Volcanic soils that grace the rugged and varying terroirs of this region of Amador County in the Sierra Foothills. High elevation sites up to 3200’ contribute to the complexity of these wines. Estate grown, farmed using green fertilizers and free of any chemical treatments they exhibit a soulful old world charm. Terre Rouge is exclusively Rhone varietals and often blended as in the Southern Rhone as well as some single vineyard bottlings of Syrah and Mourvedre, Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Roussanne. Vigneron Bill Easton also makes another label: Easton, that focuses on non-Rhone Varietals such as Zinfandel, Cabernet and Barbera. The Zins are not alcohol bombs but balanced unique expressions of the wonderful terroir of the Sierra Foothills.
