Topography, climate and soils combine to make Nevada County wines distinctive, complex and varied. Blessed by warm sunny days, afternoon Sierra breezes and cool nights, this high altitude Mediterranean climate helps create high quality Wines.
You may visit Nevada County wineries throughout the year — our favorites are just a short drive from the Red Castle Inn. You may use the map below to find them or visit the Sierra Foothills Wine Association site to download a PDF.
The association also sponsors the "Golden Harvest Wine Trail". Each winery welcomes you to tour its facilities and taste its distinctive wines while savoring gourmet culinary treats.
After your outing in the Nevada County wine country, return to our gardens to enjoy your evening with a bottle of your favorite — we'll provide the glasses and a bottle opener!
