David Girard Vineyards has been producing wine for over 20 years in the Gold Hill area north of Placerville. Initially, the vineyard sold its entire merlot harvest to Robert Mondavi under a 10-year contract. Over the years, the vineyard expanded to include red Rhône varietals, inspired by the similar soil and climate conditions of the Rhône Valley in France. Today, the vineyard spans 85 acres and continues to thrive.
