El Dorado Wineries are settled in the Sierra Foothills range from 1,200 to 3,500 feet in elevation. The hundreds of microclimates make a perfect home to nearly 50 grape varieties. The warm summer days and cool night air give El Dorado wines their extraordinary flavors and deep colors. In 1848 the California gold rush came to El Dorado County.
