Wine & Spirits: Clarksburg Wine Country

Clarksburg Wine Country

Just 15 minutes from Sacramento, this undiscovered, unhurried wine region in the California Delta feels like a world away. A rich farming region that runs alongside the winding Sacramento River, the Delta is full of pear orchards, grape vines, small towns, and California history. A delta breeze travels up the river from San Francisco Bay to cool the region’s grapes at night. Chenin Blanc, Petite Sirah, Viognier and Chardonnay grapes grow well here.

Clarksburg Wine Trail

Clarksburg Wine Trail

Clarksburg Wine Trail is an easy 20 minutes from Sacramento on Highway 160. Check our Yolo County Wine Map to plan your route. There is not much doing in the Clarksburg area, except for the vineyards and tasting rooms in the area. Clarksburg is most famous for Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc grows well in Clarksburg because of the Delta breeze and the Sacramento River. The afternoon cooling winds make it the ideal climate for Chenin Blanc and other varieties of grapes. Pack your lunch or other appetizers and head to the tasting rooms that we have recommended.
