Central Valley, CA by cacorks.com

Our good buddy John at California Corks has another wonderful video for you to check out! If you’ve ever wondered what the landscape of the Central Valley wine growing region in CA looks like, this is a great visual depiction.

Often overlooked for the more “desirable” Napa Valley or Sonoma visual landscapes, the Central Valley has produced some incredible wines, in a region marked by brown grass (most of the year) and pock marked tree sets (as you’ll see in the aerial views from John’s video).

As well, he gives you a look inside and around a few wineries from the region, all of which can be found on his site’s large winery database.

Cheers, and enjoy the video!
