About CWA

June 2017 CWA Winery Map

Established in 1989, The Calaveras Wine Alliance is dedicated to increasing the awareness of all wines produced in Calaveras County and/or produced from Calaveras grapes. We are Calaveras County families that are making some of the most exciting wines in California’s historic Sierra Foothills region!

The Calaveras Wine community invites you to discover our premium hand-crafted wines and unique varietals. Our wines are made in small batches and family run operations dedicated to sustainability and organic practices. Calaveras is a perfect growing region for hearty Spanish and Italian varietals like Barbera, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Graciano, Toringa, Albarino, Marsanne, Verdelho and Symphony as well as old vine Zinfandels, hearty and robust Cabernet and Petite Syrah.
