ExploreSierra Foothills

At 1200 feet above sea level and higher, the Sierra Foothills region is well above the fog line and enjoys long, sunny summer days. This, combined with the good drainage but low nutrient level of the soil make for robust Zinfandel, Cabernet and Syrah. Amador County and El Dorado are a part of the Sierra Foothills AVA.
