Fitzpatrick Winery was founded in 1980; long before the Sierra Foothills became fashionable for wine production. Owner Brian Fitzpatrick is the president of the Fair Play Wine Growers Association and was instrumental in gaining AVA recognition fro the region in 2001.
Fitzpatrick makes a number of hand crafted wines in very small quantities. They are known for Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese, Grenache, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. Fitzpatrick recently made their first Port with organically grown grapes.
In addition to producing wine, owners Brian and Diana Fitzpatrick also have a bed and breakfast on their property. The couple is committed to using sustainable farming techniques and their vineyards are certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers.
