Alpen Cellars is a Star Host

Alpen Cellars Winery was established on a family ranch in the spring of 1984; it is situated in a picturesque mountain valley at the foot of towering craggy peaks in the rugged Trinity Lake region of Trinity County, California. Alpen Cellars is a family venture in which each of us take part in the long painstaking process of wine production. From pruning to harvest, crush to fermentation and bottling, we strive for fine wine and a connection to our customers. It may seem like an unlikely location to grow wine grapes, but the combination of high elevation and favorable microclimate provide the ideal conditions for early maturing grapes.

Beautiful tent, vineyard, and river
My wife and I and our pack of dogs loved our stay here. Both tents/lean-to’s look right onto the vines and towards the mountains in the distance. The tents are about 50 yards apart; they feel pretty separate though there’s no major visual break. The tents themselves are cozy and the beds are comfy. The bathroom and shower are nearby and really well done. Although the water is non-potable, the owners left a 5-gallon jug of water for us along with a heater since we were there in early November. The swimming hole a bit down the path is great, and don’t miss out on heading further down the path past the swimming hole turnoff, where you’ll find a gorgeous wide bend in the river; we were there when the river was low, revealing beautiful rock formations of many colors. Speaking of colors, the leaves at this time of the year were incredible shades of yellows and oranges. The wine tasting was also fun and delicious. For a small, family-owned winery, they produce at least 8 wines that we tasted. Owner Keith served us and our chat about wine and the changes to Trinity county was fun. The 5 horses down in the meadow made for a beautiful setting.

The tent cabins were exceptionally clean, functional, relaxed, and perfect for a get away. Would have like wifi and cell service and would pay for it given the option.

Tranquil Trinity Hideaway
I loved all of the details that were put into this stay. The campsite was beautiful, the shower and bathroom was very well maintained and I had a wonderful nights sleep on the comfortable mattress surrounded by peaceful sounds of nature. The fire pit was perfect for the evening, and all the utensils we needed for the kitchen were handily available. Make sure to take advantage of the nearby swimming hole and walk up to the winery for an educational and tranquil wine tasting!

So comfy in the wilderness
I loved staying at Alpen Cellars! Such a beautiful and remote spot. All the details have been handled with care. The sites are super clean, the bathroom and shower room were dialed in with amenities and super clean too. I stayed in the wall tent at site one with my daughter and my two boys stayed in a bell tent nearby. We had an awesome time going down to the waterhole and walking around the property, the outside kitchen is so handy and came equipped with plates, cups, silverware, tea kettle, camp stove and some other thoughtful items that of we needed for our time there. All in all I am so glad I took my kids to stay here.

Wonderful place to explore and stay. The site was so clean and well appointed. We will definitely be back! Keith was an excellent host, and the wine varieties were impressive.

Tent cabin for the win
Phenomenal location if you are looking to get away to get off grid somewhere beautiful. Accommodations are so comfortable and are thoughtfully equipped with everything from bug spray, to kitchen utensils, bathroom essentials (to use in the HOT SHOWER) and even family games. Just a short hike from the tent cabins is this gorgeous swimming hole, which was a very welcome reprieve from the 100 degree weather during our visit. The swimming hole was a huge hit for our family! We loved joining our hosts for a tasting experience at the winery to enjoy the delicious wine and also learning about the history of the Trinity Valley, search for gold and other minerals as well as the story of the winery. We couldn’t have enjoyed our stay more and hope to return with our friends who joined us every year. Pictures don’t even do this slice of paradise justice.
