The Sierra Foothills is one of our favorite regions to find new treasures. Entirely appropriate, given its location at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains – the heart of the California gold rush. Here amidst rolling oak-studded hillsides and long forgotten 49er ghost towns, about 100 boutique wineries continue a tradition of viticulture that dates back to the 1840s. Almost all of them are too small for nationwide distribution, but lucky for you, our reach is deep!
We love this AVA because of its reasonable land costs, great sun/wind exposure, and prime drainage – all the check marks for “California hidden gem.” Lot 736 comes to us from a beautiful winery located a short trek from historic Route 49. Produced from estate vineyards at 1300 ft elevation under the hands of a winemaker whose resume is littered with 90+ scores and gold medals from his work in Napa, Sonoma, and the Sierra Foothills alike, this is an elegant, aromatic Cabernet that the value hunters will feel very good about each time they pop open another bottle. Sold at the original winery for just over $30, it's available here for under half the price!
