Inspired by classic Italian wines and their home, Lake Tahoe, this urban winery had their first release in 2016.

Founders Jessica Stanley and Allison Yonto thought, “What if we made a wine that not only delivered distinctive taste but also gave back to the community that’s given us so much?” The duo decided to take a leap and bring their passions for wine and Lake Tahoe by launching Illanta Wines in a place nobody expected a wine label to take shape: in the heart of the Sierra Nevada.

They source high-quality grapes from Napa, Sonoma, and Santa Barbara’s Santa Rita Hills to produce Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel.
