Wine Tasting in El Dorado

In the foothills above Sacramento are two wine growing areas.  We visited Amador last time, so El Dorado was our destination for this trip.  Our tour guide was the lovely Anna, who we have known and loved since she was 3.  She is an excellent guide!

Our first stop, Narrow Gate.

Miraflores Winery

Sierra Vista Winery

The view from Sierra Vista!

Holly's Hill where we shared a bottle of Rose while eating out sandwiches.

Obscurity Cellars
Oakstone Vineyards

We visited 6 wineries, made several purchases and enjoyed many different samples of wines.  The folks at the wineries are friendly, knowledgeable, and generous with their pours.
