Our Wineries

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.
