Sierra Foothills AVA

About the Region Sierra Foothills AVA

With 20 wineries and counting, Placer County has re-embraced its heritage as a viable California wine-producing region. Located in the Sierra Foothills American Viticultural Area (AVA), Placer County wineries offer a refreshing change from the more commercialized and less personal wine tasting experiences of larger wine regions. Most Placer wineries are family-owned and operated, have small vineyards and the winemakers themselves are part of the charm, making Placer County a newly sought-after destination for a more personalized and unique wine-tasting experience.
