The origin of our winery name stems from the town of Oroville. “ORO” is the Spanish word for “GOLD” and was the original name of the town. In 1938 the local fruit cooperative, United Growers needed a name for their fruit label. The innovative growers thought “Gold Digger” would be an appropriate name for the label because of the town’s gold mining history. In later years the company changed their name to Gold Digger, which is now the parent company of our winery “Gold Digger Cellars”. The company is still a cooperative owned by the local grape / fruit growers. Staying with the “gold” and “mining” theme of the town, we carried the name over to the winery. Oroville’s current day treasures are the vineyards tucked away on the hillsides of the fruitful valley and the handcrafted wines with unique flavors and characteristics of the region. Gold Digger Cellars is a small winery dedicated to producing handcrafted quality wines. From years of experience, growing premium fruit in the Okanogan Valley region, we take pride in our local vineyards where 100% of our grapes are grown. We carefully monitor them to ensure the quality of our grapes and the development their flavor and complexity through progressive growing practices, mixed with a hot, arid, desert like growing climate. We hand pick all of our grapes adding to the premium quality of our wine. Gold Digger Cellars is committed to producing wines with unique flavors and characteristics of the region.

It will be a very special treat for those who enjoy dessert wines. This beautifully structured dessert wine was harvested in early December and has wonderful aromas & flavors of honey, pears and sweet peaches & cream with rich notes of melon, herbal and mineral flavors. This wine is well balanced and has a slight hint of fig and orange on the long silky finish that will leave you longing for another sip. 9.0% Residual Sugar
  2002 Riesling Winter Harvest
This sweet wine was pressed from partially frozen grapes harvested in mid-December. Mouth watering baked apple and pear aromas lead to rich sweet flavors of apricots and peaches with plenty of acid to balance nicely with the sugar. Layers of complex fruit flavors linger with hints of vanilla and honey that lead to an extended silky finish. This Winter Harvest Riesling is our version of a cross between Ice Wine and Late Harvest Wine. 7.0% Residual Sugar
