Sierra Foothills

Beautiful scenery pairs well with a glass of wine. Famous attractions like Yosemite National Park and Lake Tahoe offer breathtaking examples of our state’s natural abundance, while just a short drive away, local vineyards in the Sierra Foothills serve up wines of abundant flavor and variety. The epicenter of the California Gold Rush, this area attracted thousands of immigrants who sought fortune in the mines—and left their vines in the soil. Ghost towns still dot the area, serving as reminders of the Wild West.
