The El Dorado Wine Country is marked by breathtaking vistas amidst a wide diversity of award-winning wines and renowned wineries that specialize in  making those vibrantly flavorful, distinctly delicious wines. Located in El Dorado County, California, United States, the region  benefits from the cool breezes that come off the mountains and push hot air off the grape vines and down to the valley. With numbers reaching as high as 70, there is no dearth of tasting rooms and open wineries  spanning across the landscape. The major highlights have been listed right below.

American River Wine & Ag Trail: The American River Wine & Ag Trail comprises of multiple farms that promotes sustainability and ample opportunities for fun filled experiences.

Carson Road Wineries: This  informal affiliation of 6 family-owned, small-production wineries are known for creating a wide range of bold, award-winning wines primarily from the El Dorado grape growing appellation.

The uniqueness of every wine tour is special in itself and must be experienced by wine lovers. The tours enable you to have a planned itinerary and you can visit up to 4 or 5 wineries in a day.  The people who conduct the tours are highly familiar with the area and can take you to the best wineries in the region. Your tasting sessions will undoubtedly be better when they are conducted by experts who know their wines.

Winemakers and winery owners are among the world’s most charming and interesting people, and they often give away samples of their art for free. That should further give you reason to plan an elaborate wine tour at the wineries in Placerville. The thing that’s the most fun about a winery visit is chatting with the people behind the bar and for that, it is best to go early to avoid too many people.
