AURIGA WINE CELLARS is located in El Dorado County in Northern California. "Auriga" is the ancient Greek and Roman name of a constellation in the Northern hemisphere and is commonly known as "The charioteer."

In ancient times, The Charioteer was associated with Zeus. When Zeus grew up, he rewarded The Charioteer with a horn endowing it with magical properties, so that whosoever possessed it should obtain in abundance all he desired and find it a "horn of plenty." The Horn of Plenty, is a symbol of abundance, fruitfulness and prosperity, and is represented by a horn overflowing with fruits and flowers. The Greek lantern depicted on the wine label is a reproduction of lanterns used in ancient times. We feel it is a fitting symbol of The Charioteer and Auriga and this legend.


Our current production is 2,500 cases. Our varietals include Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Rose, Riesling (aka: Capella - off dry), Zinfandel, Syrah (Shiraz), Sangiovese, Barbera, a select number of red wines, limited release red blends and a port style dessert wine. Each lot is hand crafted and consists of 100-125 cases, so the wine selection changes and the production is unique from year to year.
