Grey Fox Vineyards

Grey Fox Vineyards Before founding Grey Fox Vineyards in 1996, the Arrigoni and Cecchi families spent much of their free time pursuing their passion for flying small planes. It was on these getaways that conversations turned to dreams of planting a vineyard and building a winery. Bruce's family had a tradition of making wine at home and Gary had a good chemistry background. A seed was planted and it began to take hold. They all sought out viticulture courses at U.C. Davis and committed themselves to a new passion--winegrowing. While Bruce, Gary and Jeanne are involved in the vineyard and winery operations, Pat is busy handling sales and wine tasting events. Their goal is to create high quality wine by constantly overseeing and improving their vineyard to produce great fruit. Come visit Grey Fox and share in the fulfillment and pride of this incredible endeavor. Taste the premium wines and you'll understand why winemaking has become their ultimate passion.

We are located about an hour and a half out of Sacramento. Take Hwy 70 North to Oroville. Exit at Orovillle Dam Blvd and go East through town. Turn right on Olive Hwy #162 and proceed to just past the Casino, turn right on Oakvale and follow the signs(approx. 2.5 miles) then turn left on Grey Fox Ln.

One of Italy's finest grapes has taken hold in California and is grown right here at our vineyard in Butte County. Our Barbera has intense berry fruit and black currant characteristics. This is a complex wine with an unusual smoothness. A perfect choice for all dishes yet a wine you can just enjoy on its own.
  Cabernet Sauvignon
An outstanding Cabernet with a great nose and soft finish. Full bodied
This Chardonnay wine is crisp, fruity, and elegant. Crafted in the European style, light in Oak. These premium grapes are grown in the Mendocino area as our climate is too warm to produce premium quality Chardonnay wine.
Soft and smooth is the best way to describe this young but very delightful Merlot. The grapes came from a premium vineyard in Mendocino where the climate is perfect for producing ultra-premium Merlot.
  Moscato Dolce'
A sweet Port-style wine that has wonderful peach flavors. Great with peaches, strawberries, pineapple and ice cream.
  Port Cabernet Sauvignon
A rich, luscious and very smooth fortified wine.
  Port Dolcetto
A "Double Gold" medal winner at the 2004 West Coast Wine Competition. Not only did this fabulous wine win a gold medal among "Varietal Ports" but also won "Best of Class".
  Port Syrah
The sweetest of our Port-style wines, dark, rich and full-bodied. This Port Syrah is full of berry, currant and a slight hint of chocolate. You must pair this up with Grey Fox Port Wine Chocolate Jerk Nuggets available in our Gift section.
  Port Zinfandel
All of the traditional Zinfandel character in a sweet, smooth Port-style wine.
Our unique blend of Sangiovese, White Zinfandel and Granache Rose' make for a slightly sweet and very refreshing wine
Grown and produced on our own estate vineyard. This "King-of-Chianti" grape was grown on our vineyard to bring out that authentic Italian style. Crisp and slightly spicy, just the way it should be. This Sangiovese pairs well with pasta, Mexican food and other spicy dishes.
Back by popular demand, our latest release of Simpatico is sure to be a big hit. Simpatico is a unique Zinfandel based wine that has a slight sweetness similar to White Zinfandel but with all of the color and charachter of a medium bodied red wine. If your not into heavy red wines or if you simply want a pleasing, easy to drink wine, then Simpatico is the wine for you.
We believe the 2003 vintage was an even better year for our Syrah grape. Grey Fox Syrah is full-bodied with intense flavors. It's fruity and very smooth, with a hint of smoke.
A popular Spanish grape grown here in Vina. A smooth, medium-bodied table wine. Distinctive in flavor, hints of smoke.
  White Sangiovese
A unique and refreshing dry wine with a slight blush tint. Strong hints of green apples makes this ideal with light snacks, meals or for brunch.
