California's Fabled Gold Country with Rich Winemaking History Create an Unforgettable Getaway
El Dorado is more than an outdoor playground for adrenaline junkies, not many know, but this region entered the world's stage some 150 years ago producing some of the finest grapes and wines that has delighted even the harshest critics for years.
Many of you that live in the San Francisco Bay Area have darted right through Placerville located in the Sierra foothills on your way to shred some powder or skip along Lake Tahoe, not knowing the treasures that await along your travels on Highway 50. Read on as we're about to blow your mind and share a big secret with you.
We hope to bump into you on our next adventure in and outside of wine country.
-THE VINEYARD VIXEN
On your next adventure towards the Sierras, we recommend slowing down, and break up the trek and add one of our recommendations on your way up, then add another on your return travels. And yep, there's some kid-friendly options that will no doubt give you (and them) some space to burn off some of that pent up energy and inhale the smell of those amazing pine trees. And heck, when traffic backs up, take one of the Placerville exits and join us at Boeger Winery or any of the other dozen El Dorado wineries we're going to share with you.
For those of you that can slow it down and add an extra day, be sure to add the newest El Dorado jewel to your CellarPass itinerary, Myka Cellars and opt for the food pairing set under the gorgeous oak tree on their patio. We promise you will wonder why you haven't discovered this wine country region sooner- the wines are over the top and priced right, the people are over-the-top friendly and it's just a hop, skip and a jump from anywhere in the SF Bay Area!
