Wineries and Wine Tasting
A major agricultural region, the Delta has some of the most fertile soils in the world and the production of wine and wine grapes are a significant part of the area’s agricultural industry. Wine grapes came to the Delta during the Gold Rush and defied the odds through the Prohibition Era. Now a booming wine region, catering to tastings and other events, you can sip and savor your way through the Delta!
Boasting more than 35 grape varietals, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, Petite Sirah, and Sauvignon Blanc to name a few, and a growing number of wineries and tasting rooms, the scenic landscapes have earned Clarksburg Wine Country the moniker of “Gem of the California Delta”. The growers and vintners of this pride themselves in producing high -quality, award-winning wines.
The region’s unique environment with a long and sunny growing season and the “Delta breeze” creates grapes unlike any other in the world and offers a truly distinct wine-tasting experience. Comparable in quality to other California regions, Clarksburg Wine Country is fast becoming one of the Bay Area’s favorite wine-tasting destinations. Drive along the Sacramento River sloughs and beside the majestic valley oaks and experience the exceptional Clarksburg area.
