California Central Valley – Winery Weddings 

California’s 400 mile-long Central Valley is one of the largest agricultural valleys in the world. Stretched between the coastal mountain range and the Sierra Nevada, it stretches from Sacramento in the north to Bakersfield in the south. While vineyards are in abundance, wineries are far less numerous – the grapes largely destined for uses other wine or sent elsewhere. However, Winery Wedding Guide searched the area to find that delightful winery wedding venues do exist. Most are located in the environs of the city of Lodi in San Joaquin County. A scattering of venues are to be found near Sacramento, California’s state capital, and the mid-valley cities of Fresno and Madera.
