Casque Wines, of Loomis, is a boutique winery founded by Mark Breunig and Kevin Stevenson with the release of their first wines in the last quarter of 2008 under the brand Le Casque (pronounced "cask"). They had an early award win with their first wine released, the 2007 Calotte Blanc, a white Rhone style blend winning "Best of Class" which was just the beginning of the awards.

Casque Wins Top Awards:

  • 2009 "Best of Class" White Rhone – SF Chronicle
  • 2010 "Best of Show – White" MicroWinery – State Fair
  • 2010 "Best of Show – Red" MicroWinery – State Fair
  • 2011 "Gold" Viognier – SF Chronicle
  • 2012 "Gold" Vermentino - SF Chronicle
  • 2012 "Gold" Malbec – SF Chronicle

Casque produces small lots of hand crafted Rhone and Bordeaux style wines from the absolute best vineyard sources in the California Sierra Foothills. They embrace the time-honored French tradition of blending several different varietals together to create a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts.

After spending several years making their wines at other local wineries, Casque Wines recently completed their own production facility at 3273 Swetzer Road in downtown Loomis CA just in time for their 2011 crush. This urban production facility is also a tasting room by day and a wine bar at night located next to Loomis Basin Brewing. Patrons will enjoy wine on the patio with fire pits and outdoor heaters. For inclement weather wine is served inside the winery.

Casque Wines features live acoustical music fire side every Saturday evening from 5-8pm focusing on singer/songwriter artists with no cover charge. They invite people to enjoy the fire pits while listening to some original and mainstream music under the stars. Many more activities are being planned including the start-up of open mic night and outdoor movies in the spring time.

Standard Hours of Operation:

  • Thursday – Saturday: Wine by the glass, wine flights, and retail: 11am – 8pm
  • Thursday – Sunday: Wine Tasting is also available from 11am – 4pm
