Small batch wines, made as a tribute to our patriarch, Edio Delfino
Often described as hardworking, intelligent, strong, sharp, and driven, Edio was passionate about agriculture as a way of life and instilled that into his entire family. Because of this, third-generation Delfino’s followed in his footsteps and got their degrees from Cal Poly SLO where they became immersed in the Central Coast wine industry. In 2017, they decided to move home to El Dorado County to start Edio Vineyards – focusing on fresh, balanced, alpine wines with a devotion to honoring the climate, soils, and, of course, their Delfino family.Our Full Story

Reservations are highly recommended especially during our busy Fall season, but we do try to accomodate walk-ins to enjoy our Edio Tastings! Our pairings and tours do require reservations ahead of time. We ask for no outside food at the tasting room, but have Joan's Apple Bakery cheese & charcuterie grazing boxes available daily.
Here at Edio Vineyards, we seek to give everyone a spectacular visit. When you arrive you will be seated overlooking our entire farm and started with a splash of our heritage hard cider. We then will take you through 4 of our small lot wines and explain our family story along with how each wine was made. The experience is intimate, educational, and relaxing and you will never have to leave your seat!Make a Reservation
