Sutter County is an unofficial wine-making zone (meaning no AVA as yet) within the Sacramento Valley, all a part of California’s Central Valley. This is the northern section of the valley, which is very warm and dry. Typically, the most common grape found in this part of California is Zinfandel, with Chardonnay for whites. Despite the heat, producers often work with popular Bordeaux grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

  •  there’s a reason why nobody ever tried to pull out these old vines. The fruit they produce is just too good.That is certainly true, but credit also has to be given to the fact that White Zinfandel became the rage thirty-something years ago, thus, saving thousands of acres of Zinfandel from being replanted to Merlot or Chardonnay.  Thank you, Su...

  • Nice report!   When I was last up that way, I enjoyed Wilderotter very much, so if you get back up there, give them a try.   And yes, not much to do in Amador City.  When up that way,  I enjoy staying in Sutter Creek. Read More
