Focus on Fair Play Tour

  • January 25, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • Depart/Return Palladio

Fair Play is an AVA* in southern El Dorado County that is often overlooked by the wine tasting crowds that frequent Amador County or Apple Hill (and that can be a good thing!). The Fair Play AVA has typically deep, well drained granitic soils and ranges in elevation between about 2,000-3,000 feet, making it the highest AVA by average elevation in California. Most of the wineries are small, family-owned, and the wines are a mix of Zinfandel, Rhone-styles, Italian varietals, and more.  Many of the wineries are also known for their sweeping views of the foothills and Sierra Nevada.

We will be stopping at a number of small wineries and maybe visiting some wine caves, and we will have a casual picnic (supplied) in a wine cave (if possible) - how cool is that?

Join us for an in-depth tour of one of the smallest and most under-rated AVAs in California.

$45 per person.  Departure 10:30 am with return about 5:30 pm.  Deposit of $20 required to hold a spot.  Use PayPal or call me at (916)[masked] to reserve your spot.

    Cort told me that he may have a conflict and will give up his seat if we are full. So, if a couple more members sign up for the tour and you get placed on the wait list, Cort may charge his RSVP and your in!

    If there is more than one on the wait list - you probably will not get in because I have deposits from everyone else. But don't worry, we will be having another tour next month (location TBD).
