With more than 150 years of history steeped in gold and agriculture, the El Dorado region is poised for its new found resurgence in viticulture. Unique vineyard soils and a high elevation create a superior environment for a vast array of varietals. The region is gaining recognition for its ability to grow quality grapes that exhibit a sense of place.
