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.
