Red Lava Wine Tasting

Back to Winery List

From the virgin soils of our  hillside vineyards we bring you our landmark wines.  Their character stands as tribute to the undiluted alchemy of the Red Hills Lake County American Viticultural Area.

This newly recognized AVA draws strength of character from terroir largely defined through its geological newness: crowned in tall volcanic peaks, the resultant mineral-rich, moisture-starved earth yields fruit in which lies the foundation for eminently drinkable wines.

Great wine begins with the nurturing earth, while both in turn enrich our lives.  Steep hills and southern exposure.  Hot summers and cool evening breezes: a place to make great wine...a place to enjoy life.

We believe that great wine begins in the soil that nurtures the vineyard. Bud Lawson, owner of Red Lava Vineyards and producer of Red Lava Syrah, knows soil. From many generations of farmers, he began his informal training as a child through observation and involvement with his family. Through his career as a land surveyor and work with construction companies he increased his knowledge, and now concentrates his efforts on learning the unique characteristics of the soil in his vineyard

We invite you to contact us for a personal vineyard tour, to purchase our wines or get more information.
