United as a Family
El Dorado Winery Association member wineries are a select group of small, independent and family-owned wineries invested in the agriculture of the El Dorado and Fair Play American Viticultural Areas (AVA). Over 75% of the wine produced here is both grown and produced locally.
Why El Dorado wines are unique
Mountain born, intense ﬂavors and distinct character
Our mountain vineyards are on steep hillsides with warm summer days and cool nights. It’s an environment that gives wines luscious fruit, an alluring balance, gentle tannins, and body and depth. El Dorado County has over 40 wineries, growing more than100 varietals.
