Explore the Region

The Sierra Foothills region is gaining acclaim from wine enthusiasts and industry experts. In the 2011 California State Fair Wine Competition, Sierra Foothills wines received more gold medals for red wine than Napa and Sonoma entries combined! Not only do the taste of our wines compete with the best of them, but our region also offers an exceptional experience you can’t find anywhere else. The Sierra Foothills are home to small, intimate wineries with delicious wines at a great value. You will even get frequent opportunities to meet the owners and winemakers during your visits!

Did you know that the wine growing tradition dates back to the California Gold Rush? Today, the Sierra Foothills AVA (American Viticultural Association) includes over 100 wineries. The most common grapes in the region are a variety of Zinfandel, but you can also find Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes offering wines with rich and spicy flavors. Local vineyards also cultivate an abundance of white grape varieties providing for a Chardonnay rich in citrus flavors. Be sure to taste them all throughout your travels!
