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 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.

Going into the winery, the guest is treated with a beautiful landscape overview.  Outside, there are few tables and lined up for guest to take it the surrounding in a beautiful day. 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...

This place is always so welcoming, unpretentious, and overall lovely! One or two good reds, but they are best known for their bubblies! Amazing flavors and great quality.

Their bottles are as pretty as their wines, which are hugged with original artwork. Free tasting! They have a beautiful setup inside and outside, so you can grab a bottle and bring a picnic basket and set yourself up outdoors. The grounds are beautiful and the wines are, of course, fantastic. They do zins, syrah, and barbera very well. But a lot of...

Bray really does have a beautiful vineyard. The rolling hills and green landscape are really fantastic. The trees in the vineyard are perfectly laid out for great photos. Very friendly casual environment. The wines here are good, but the folks that run this place keep us coming back! Generous tastings, and knowledgeable about their wines of course. Great wine, music, grounds and tasting room. You'll encounter some crazy Portuguese varietals here as well as some killer olive oils

The tasting room is super cute with two bars, and then an out door area overlooking the vineyards (perfect for large groups). You can order ordered a cheese plate and a tasting for two. The wines are absolutely amazing, some light, then grow in tannins as you got to the Reds. The cheese plate paired nicely with each wine, quaint, picturesque setting. There's a pincic seating area with water noises, shade and flowers, and it's located immediately next to the vines. They give you huge pours and complementary cheese plate with bread, homemade olive...

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 follow natural wine making methods and gentle harvesting practices minimizing the bruising, bringing only the finest fruit to the winery. They make 100% Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Syrah, Red Blend, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

This sweet little tasting room opened in February 2016. Located along Highway 49, it is easily accessible. The owner/winemaker Paul is very welcoming and friendly. $10 tasting fee, which is waived with purchase, but even if you don't buy some wine (highly unlikely), the fee is worth the taste....
