Drytown Cellars is not an “unfortunate” name for a winery! —It’s toponymous! Drytown was never “dry,” but has a long history of people determined to enjoy life while following their dreams. One of the largest towns in the foothills during California’s Gold Rush, Drytown had hotels and saloons to accommodate thousands of 49ers.

The wines are amazing. The staff is helpful and the owners are extremely friendly. The food is great and the company, even better! This place is super casual and there's not much seating so I wouldn't...

The tasting room was more of a store with a tasting bar in it. It was a large space, but had lots of random purses and such for sale. They did though have some olive oils and vinegar for sale as well. If you aren't a member, flights are $5.00 for 4 tastings. Not too shabby compared to Napa. Good wine, friendly people, no outside food picnic policy, big crowds.

The villa toscano is the smaller sister of the Bella piazza winery . They are quite close to each other , and have a few of the same wines to offer for tasting but not exactly the same , so it is nice to visit...

With 40 acres already planted and plans to cultivate 30 more over the next five years, the Gur-Ariehs have crafted an exceptional vineyard producing world class wine grapes. The viticultural practices are aimed at producing uniformly ripe fruit throughout every vineyard block.

This is just a charming little winery in a 60's style home converted into a Tasting Room. There are no toppers on the bottles with 1 oz. pre-measured samples so your pours are rather generous - good thing they leave you pretzels to keep you standing. ...

They produce balanced wines that can be enjoyed in their youth, but will also age and become more complex with time. Their wines share a theme of fresh fruit reflective of the varietal flavors inherent in the grape.

There are two tasting bars and plenty of servers ready to pour your tasting. You get a little cheese plate with your tasting.

The tasting room is very nice in a Mission style. The view is gorgeous, but only available in good weather when they open the roll-up door. Staff are nice and pleasant, especially when you discuss the specifics of the wine. The experience at Cooper is always positive.

The Scott Harvey line focuses on Scott’s roots – Zinfandel, Syrah and Barbera from the Sierras. Approachable, food friendly and full of luscious fruit, these wines have struck a cord in the marketplace.

There are two tasting menu- one for Reds Reserve $10 and one for White $5... Not bad for 5 different wines.. The bottom line, the wine is good. He's got...

Nine Gables Winery and B&B is a family owned and operated winery, which began in 1998. Smaller winery, but stellar service and product. They are doing the best they can do with the size of the room they have and the staff they have on hand. If you want faster service, don't go on the weekends. However, if you like good wine and are a little patient, it is worth the stop. This is a great winery that is off the beaten path - usually you are the only people tasting at the time so it makes it more personable.

For B & B they a variety of...
