Join us for a day of tours and exploration into four Calaveras Wine Country vineyard properties. Learn about the innovative approaches our winery teams are using and the rich history of this wine region.
Discover Calaveras Wines’ deep roots in winegrape craft and what we’re doing out among the vines to make our stake in Sierra Foothills Wines so unique.
50 invited guests will get a rare look at some of Calaveras County’s most innovative vineyards not generally open to the public.

“The Calaveras Winegrape Alliance is honored to host invited guests at our first annual Innovations Vineyard Tour as attendees will get to explore extraordinary vineyard sites not open to the public and learn why this historical wine region has been an integral part of the California wine industry since 1851”, explains Sandra Hess, executive director.
