Fodor's Expert Review Lewis Grace Winery

Placerville Winery/Brewery/Distillery
A bright red 1890 barn greets visitors to this winery on land whose vineyards were replaced with apples during Prohibition. Wine critics praise the estate Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon for their structure and elegance, with Grenache, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc the other noteworthy reds and Viognier and Pinot Gris the standout whites. Grapevines surround the high-ceilinged tasting room and adjacent patio on two sides, with views of the Crystal Range, its peaks snow-capped more than half the year, in the distance.
