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

We are an extremely active community with numerous winery events and concerts weekly. We invite you to discover our unique heritage, healthy lifestyle and help us promotes our county as a premium wine country destination.
