About This Item

The Shaker Ridge Vineyard is located on a gently rolling ridge top just off Sand Ridge road near Highway 49 in El Dorado. It is surrounded by valleys created by the North Fork of the Cosumnes River a couple miles to its north and west, and by the Middle Fork of the Cosumnes River to its southeast. The elevation is approximately 1500’ above sea level with hot days and cool nights. The entire Primitivo vineyard is planted with the 03 clone of Primitivo on drought- and phylloxera-resistant St. George rootstock and planted on a gently south-southwest-facing slope. The soils are mostly the same rocky red clay loam soils of the Barbera vineyard, although the western portion of the vineyard transitions to brownish, slate-containing soils.
