Wines with a Sense of Place…From what started with a handful of barrels made from a dear friend's vineyard in 1987, Elyse Winery has been the waypoint for countless wine lovers to experience California wines and fall in love with wines and vineyards of all regions and acclaim. "If you try our wines and conclude that the weather of the vintage, the soils where the grapes were grown, the hands that tended to the farms, and the late nights of our winemaking team created a singular experience, we have done our job." -Josh Peeples, Proprietor


  • Each row of Elyse’s vineyards requires specific farming techniques to heighten expression of fruit and terroir. They love taking risks in farming — the rewards are worth it.
  • Their grapes are harvested carefully by hand, then they sort each lot at the winery.
  • The winery seeks out vineyards where each varietal can express itself in its purest form. Thanks to decades of partnerships and hard work with their growers and farmers, each Elyse vineyard-designate wine embodies a specific time and place.
