Family-run, boutique wineries
With 20 wineries and counting, Placer County re-embraces its heritage as a viable California wine-producing region. Placer County wineries, classified with the "Sierra Foothills" appellation, offer a refreshing change from the more commercialized and less personal wine tasting experiences of larger wine regions. Most Placer wineries are family-owned and operated, have small vineyards and the winemakers themselves are part of the charm, making Placer County a newly sought-after destination for a more personalized and unique wine-tasting experience.
