Our History

Milliaire Winery is a small family owned winery founded by Liz and Steve Millier in 1983 in the cellar of their former home in Murphy's CA. Following their dreams of making premium wines from the Sierra Foothills, today Milliaire Winery has expanded to include the next generation of the Millier family and occupies over an 8,000 square foot winery with a dedicated barrel room and modern crush pad facility. . .

Our Winemaker

After 36 harvests, Steve Millier is still exploring, learning and most importantly, having fun in the winery. He graduated from Fresno State with a degree in enology (winemaking) in 1975. His drive to understand the whole of winemaking led him to pursue a second degree in viticulture (grape growing). He knows the science and art of winemaking and grape growing from the ground up. Steve is part alchemist, part artist and part farmer. The rest of us are fortunate to enjoy both his company and the fruit of his life's work - great bottles of wine! . . . (read more)

Our Vineyards

We label our wines "Vineyard Selections" because we are fortunate to have access to a variety of outstanding Foothill vineyards. We have worked with the same growers for thirty years and value their friendship and dedication to the quality fruit they produce. In the winery we continue that dedication to excellence, our wines are truly handmade! Only the finest grapes are chosen and minimally processed, using native yeasts and cellaring in French and American Oak barrels. This allows the unique characteristics of each vineyard to be expressed.
