Description: The Tehama Oaks Vineyard and Winery was bonded as the first Red Bluff based winery in May 2010. We encourage you to take a five minute drive out Hwy 36 West to taste our wines. We are a family owned corporation dedicated to producing high quality estate wines from our own small vineyards and superb varietal wines and blends from premium Northern California vineyards. At Tehama Oaks we use modern equipment to handcraft limited production wines in an old world style.
Our winemaker, Bob Douglas, developed a lifelong interest in wines and winemaking as a beginning science teacher at Napa High School in 1966. In the mid-1990's he began making wine at home and after taking some winemaking and viticulture classes, the family decided to plant two small vineyards on their property in Red Bluff in 2008. Later that year, Bob Douglas retired after 10 years as Tehama County Superintendent of Schools, culminating a 42 year career in California public education, in order to pursue his passion for viticulture and winemaking.
In 2010 the Tehama Oaks Vineyard and Winery Corporation was formed and the winery was constructed. By summer 2010 we were a federally bonded winery and licensed by the State of California to make and sell wines. September 2010 marked the first commercial harvest of our vineyards and our first commercial crush of quality grapes from selected vineyards across Northern California.
Our first Tehama Oaks wines were released in May 2011 (Viognier and Roussanne) at the winery to an enthusiastic audience and we are looking forward to meeting and surpassing the expectations of wine lovers, tourists, and north state citizens for years to come. We hope to see you soon in historic Red Bluff for a relaxing experience complete with great wine.
