Come enjoy wine, food, music, and more at over 25 wineries in Lake County, between 10 am and 5 pm on July 28 and 29. If you do, you’ll discover how delicious the wines are in this delightful wine region that’s north of Napa County and east of Mendocino County.
The Lake County Wine Adventure provides adventurers the opportunity to visit over 25 wineries, several of which are not usually open to the public. Some of the wineries we are most looking forward to seeing this year are Brassfield Estate Winery, Chacewater Winery, Gregory Graham Wines, Hawk and Horse Vineyards, Langtry Estate and Vineyards, Obsidian Ridge, Rosa d’Oro Vineyards, Shannon Ridge Vineyards and Winery, Steele Wines, and Wildhurst Vineyards.

The Grand Prize at this year’s raffle is a stellar cellar collection of Lake County wines.
If you want to extend your stay in Lake County, there are plenty of other adventures available to take part in. County visitors can go hiking, biking, paddling, fishing, birding, golfing, boating, kayaking, or enjoy other off-road adventures. Or, you can just relax and enjoy Clear Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in California.
