The Winery

The winery is located on a 100-acre estate in the beautiful rolling pasture land of western Amador County. It gets its name from the convergence of three creeks; the Amador, Rancheria and Dry Creek, which all meet on the estate near a 100 year old cottonwood tree. The tasting room is in a new ranch style building with an attached covered porch area that offers lovely views of the rolling oak woodlands. There are picnic tables available to relax and enjoy the view as well.

The Vineyards

There are four acres of Barbera, Zinfandel and Syrah at the estate. The winery also purchases grapes from other foothill vineyards as well as from Lodi.

The Wines

Convergence produces mostly Rhone Varietals, but has a Barbera in their portfolio that won Best of Region at the California State Fair. Another choice wine is their Old Vine Zin, produced from 87 year old vines with the great jammy/spicy flavors one can expect from these old vineyards. It's certainly worth the few extra minutes to get there to give these wines a try.

The Winemaker

Stephen worked for 17 years in the winery business in both Napa and Sonoma Counties, before purchasing the in Amador County estate with his wife Jamie. A home winemaker who has also taken classes in enology, Stephen's passion for winemaking led him to search high and low for the perfect place to start his own vineyard and winery. Like many others before him, his search led him to the exciting wine country of the Sierra Foothills.
