The Sierra Foothills' most distinguishing feature is its grape diversity. You can enjoy Rhone varieties at a winery, then walk across the street and be transported to Italy, Bordeaux, or the Iberian Peninsula. To highlight this diversity, we name our Panel Selection and Panel Favorites in several categories.

The pages marked "updated" are updated in our current format and include many of the new wines and wineries that have opened recently. The other pages show the results of our blind tasting assessments from a few years ago. All will be updated within the coming weeks.

We use our Panel of Wine and Hospitality Experts to rate the wines, often by blind tasting.
