Our artisan winemakers are driven by a passion for producing excellent quality wines and a love for this mesmerizing landscape.

Today, El Dorado County has more than 2,000 acres of vines, is home to approximately 70 wineries, and produces some of California’s most sophisticated wines. Join us on an exciting journey to discover why El Dorado is one of California’s oldest wine regions and best-kept secrets, and where every winery and every sip tells a unique story.

During the two-day wine festival, winemakers and winery owners bring out limited releases, unique and lesser-known grape varieties, food pairings, and daily surprises. With your 1 or 2-Day Passport ticket, you’ll enjoy exclusive access to limited bottlings, reserve wines, and creative food pairings, and discover the unique character of the region.
