Welcome to Il Gioiello Winery and Morse Wines

Our winery name means "the small jewel", as it is truly that. We hope you will visit our beautiful and peaceful location and enjoy the extraordinary wines from the unique terroir of our ridge top vineyards. You will find us only minutes above Amador's Shenandoah Valley Vineyards.
