Alonso Family Vineyards

A brief history of Alonso Family Vineyards

Out of desire to relive his childhood, Juan planted 50 grapevines in 1995 against the advice of people who thought they knew better. Every year thereafter, he kept planting more. Perhaps he started the wine rush in Agua Dulce area! The vineyards are located in the vicinity Le Chene Restaurant and along Sierra Highway next to the Sierra Pelona Motel.

We grow grenache, sirah, tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, alvarino and many other varietals. You can enjoy the wines here at Le Chene.

The weather in Mint Canyon is warm during the day but at night we still have a breeze coming up through the canyon where it creates a difference in temperatures. Today, our 6 plus acres right here in Santa Clarita are doing well.

We offer our wines for sale at:
