The Placer County Wine Trail is a series of small family-run boutique wineries each dedicated to preserving the historic winemaking legacy of the California Sierra Foothills with passion and craftsmanship.

Just a short 30 minute drive from Sacramento, the trail runs through Loomis, Lincoln, Newcastle and Auburn and is easily accessible from I-80, 65 and Highway 49.

Varietals include the highly floral Viognier to dark-berried Tempranillo and lush Barbera as just some of the samplings. Other award winning wines include smoky and spiced Syrahs, Petite Sirah and adventurous blends. Cabernet Franc and flavor-intense Zinfandel and dessert wine offerings provide plentiful options for every taste and occasion.

Located midway between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, many flock here for a pleasure not found in other appellations – the chance to meet the winemakers. They gladly share their enthusiasm with a sample of their finest.
