Charles R Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery committed to making fine wines. The Bartlett Family has called the Livermore Valley home for more than three decades and started producing wines in 2002. With 100 percent of all grapes sourced from the Livermore Valley, the wine selection includes award-winning white and red varietals, including a popular desert wine.
Charles Richard (Dick) Bartlett is the operations manager and supervises the wine celler. Bonnie is the office manager and insures everything runs smoothly and efficiently. You can meet both in the tasting room on a regular basis. Considered the core of Charles R, knowledgable associates staff the tasting room, assist with wine making and provide many other valuable services. Briefly travel the old mining road to find a tranquil tasting room nestled among oak trees. Photos and artifacts tell the history of the mining area and the transformation to today’s winery. The patio, built in 2008, is the perfect place to have a picnic and enjoy your favorite wine or host an intimate private celebration or corporate event. If you don’t hear live music, you will enjoy the sounds of natures beauty.
