El Dorado County boasts of over 70 unique wineries encompassed in two appellations within its borders. This may just be California's best-kept wine secret yet! Check out our 2 featured wineries.

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.

Fair Play

Since becoming its own appellation in 2001, Fair Play has developed a reputation for high quality wine grapes that yield deeply flavorful, intense wines from an amazingly diverse range of grape varieties. Fair Play is home to more than 20 family-owned boutique wineries that take pride in their land, their wines, and their customers.
