Sierra Foothills of California | Wine and Wineries | Foothills Wino


Amador County

- Dry white wine

- Mostly Chardonnay


While the Sierra Foothills is not a very hospitable climate for growing ultra-premium Chardonnay, there are some wineries that do a very good job with locally grown Chardonnay (and also some that source grapes from more Chardonnary-friendly regions and pour them here). 

There are also some wonderful white wines here in the Foothills that we think you'll like as a Chardonnay drinker. For example, be sure to try some of the Rhone-style whites, like Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne... some of the wineries produce them in a very Chardonnay-like style. 

Based on your answers, here are the wineries we would recommend for you and the order we recommend them. Keep in mind, though, that there is no guarantee as to what a winery is pouring on a given day.
