Sip Your Way Through Lake County Wineries and Vineyards

Quickly becoming known for high-quality Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, Lake County is a refreshing wine destination. It’s centered around its namesake Clear Lake, which is the biggest natural freshwater lake in all of California. You can sip fine wines and enjoy myriad outdoor activities like bass fishing, kayaking, and water skiing. Located just south of Mendicino County and just north of Napa and Sonoma, this region boasts the freshest air in the state.

Lake County vineyards grow well in the region’s rocky volcanic red soil. Enjoy stunning high valley scenery at Brassfield Estate Winery, a peaceful oasis of oak trees, manicured gardens, and Mediterranean-inspired architecture. Cache Creek Vineyards features a fun wine barrel-shaped building, while sheep and goats graze the grounds at Beaver Creek Vineyards. Hop between tasting rooms in the small town of Kelseyville, including Tulip Hill, Steele Wines, and Wildhurst. Try bright, fruit-forward wines at Gregory Graham and see unique public hop kilns at Milano Family Winery. Sample your way across scenic Lake County.
