Lone Buffalo Vineyards
Lone Buffalo Vineyards offers premium Placer County wines crafted by a seasoned winemaker in the ambiance and with the down-to-earth attitude of a small boutique winery.
Family owned and operated by Phil and Jill Maddux, Lone Buffalo Vineyards is doing its part to return Placer County to its post Gold Rush roots as a premium wine-producing region.
We emphasize food-friendly, Rhône-style wines with a twist of cowboy and old west philosophy. Try our flagship wine, the Where the Buffalo Roam Syrah blend, a consistent major medal winner at both the SF Chronicle and CA State Fair competitions and other award-winners that make up our "herd" like our classic Foothill Zin -- the Thunderbeast, our Bison Blanc Viognier, Buffalo Rose Sangiovese Rosé, Tatonka Tempranillo, Noblebeast Cabernet, Bison Heart Petite Sirah and Pawnee Tawny Port.
Visit us at our brand new tasting room and winery on Wise Road on the North Auburn side of the Placer County Wine Trail. We have plenty of space for all your needs and our new crush pad doubles as a great patio space for picnicking and enjoying the outdoors! Our wines are available for tasting and purchase at the winery and at many Placer County and Lake Tahoe retail outlets and restaurants.
