With a click on the highlighted areas below, you are on your way to finding your perfect winery-wedding day.

California’s North Coast, stretches from the redwood forest-rimmed vineyards of Mendocino through NapaSonoma, and Lake Counties, to the San Francisco Bay AreaContinuing south, the Santa Cruz Mountains  region includes  San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz counties. And finally, Monterey County.The  Central Coast meanders through San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. Next comes the Southern California area, with Riverside County’s Temecula Valley providing the bumper crop of winery-wedding venues surrounded by scattering of others in neighboring San Diego County.

Inland, vineyards abound in the 400 mile-long Central Valley Wineries, however, are far and few between – the grapes largely destined for other uses than wine or sent elsewhere.  Delightful winery wedding venues do exist.  Look for most of them in San Joaquin and Madera Counties, with a few to be found near Sacramento, California’s state capital. Known as “Gold Country” for the 49’ers who churned the foothills’ red earth in the search for gold, today the Sierra Foothills is rich in a treasure of another sort – the acclaimed wineries who share the history-laden foothills of the Sierra.  The region includes Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Nevada and Placer counties.
