About Perry Creek Winery
Perry Creek Winery is located south of Placerville in the El Dorado appellation, east of Lake Tahoe in the picturesque Sierra Foothills. The El Dorado appellation is unique due to its high altitude, complex topography, and decomposed granite soils. El Dorado's mountain vineyards are cooled by elevation rather than costal influence, having the same cool nights and warm days.
Perry Creek Winery was purchased by John and Cindy Sweigart, a private family owned business in August of 2020. John and Cindy are thrilled to acquire Perry Creek Winery and to grow from the legacy that the Dieter Juergens has created. They bring fresh eyes to the winery and are focused on supporting their wine club members, industry partners and family of talented employees.
