In 1978 Chateau Rodin was cleared of trees and various undergrowth. Three years later in the spring of 1981, the first Chardonnay and Zinfandel vines were planted. Since then, additional vines consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Barbera.

We are located on the Eastern side of the Sacramento Valley in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Our winery sits at 2600 feet above sea level which provides a Mediterranean climate. This makes Chateau Rodin wines unique because at this elevation we are provided with cool summer nights and warm summer days. This causes our wines to be fruity, complex, aromatic. This also affords our wines to have a variety of spiciness that has not been discovered in wines from vines at lower elevations.
