Tasting Room

DSC_5422 From our farm to your table – Enjoy Cooper Vineyards wines

Our passion starts on the vine. Our mission is to produce the highest quality fruit and present it to you in the form of exquisite single varietal wines.

Starting in 1979, Dick Cooper’s grape growing program has been 35 years in the making. Beginning with Barbera, his carefully tended rolling vineyards now boast seventeen varietals from which over twenty uniquely different wines are made. Thanks to the artful talents of winemaker Mike Roser, our premium grapes are turned into exquisite wines characterized by rich flavors and lush aromas with subtle fruitiness, balanced tannins, layered complexities and smooth lingering finishes.

Our farm includes 90 acres of carefully tended rolling vineyards planted in seventeen varietals. We specialize in estate-bottled single varietal wines.

Visit our tasting room for a taste of what’s new. Since 2004, our family and staff have dedicated themselves to making your experience at Cooper Vineyards the best it can be. Because we are a boutique winery our tasting flight changes throughout the year so you can enjoy a new experience each time you arrive.
