Rendez-Vous Winery

Rendez-Vous Winery stands as a testament to the lifelong journey and passion of Larry Dizmang and his partner Karan. Born in Kansas, Larry’s family moved to California, and more specifically to Napa Valley. By 1981, he had founded the now renowned Folie à Deux winery in Napa, harmonizing his scientific acumen and artistic flair, where he was recognized with his 1983 Chardonnay winning the Sweepstakes at the California State Fair in 1985, a prestigious accolade that underscored his emerging influence in the wine industry.

However, Larry’s winemaking journey was far from over. After retiring as a Chief Psychiatrist with the Napa Department of Corrections, Rendez-Vous Winery first opened their doors Black Friday 2011, in a shared space inside the Old Sugar Mill. Rendez-Vous Winery became a beacon for the love of winemaking and fun, particularly with local Clarksburg fruit. The Company that became a family continued to grow and moved into a much larger suite at the Old Sugar Mill in 2014, expanding the experiences from only wine to live music, fun food pairings, special events, and 2 outdoor spaces with lavish vineyard views.

Rendez-vous’ drinkable approach to winemaking garnered more accolades including winning Best White Wine in California (Best of Show) at the California State Fair Wine Competition in 2017 with the 2016 Viognier, followed by the best Riesling in the state in 2018. You can check out the Golden Bear award in the Clarksburg tasting room!

Rendez-Vous Winery is more than just a winery; it is a place to call home with a unique twist on Wine Tasting that leaves you eager to visit again with friends and family. Rendez-vous belief that “age improves with a good Rendez-vous” is not just a testament to the wines they produce but also to the experience the Rendez-vous family strives to achieve with every guest. Built on great wine and even better experiences together, they have grown from a list of 4 wines to an ever changing wine list to adapt to everyone who walks into the tasting room.

Together in July of 2023, they expanded into Midtown Sacramento, with The Shop on 16th Street, extending the rich culture of Clarksburg Wines to the heart of Sacramento.
