The El Dorado Wineries, located amid the rolling foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, occupy a setting of spectacular beauty. The El Dorado wine district is one of California's oldest wine-producing areas. Vineyards and wineries first flourished here during the Gold Rush era, and then a century later in the 1970's, a renaissance in the growth of premium vineyards and wineries began in this picturesque community. www.eldoradowines.org
