Discover the Beauty and bounty of Lake County Wine Country

Drive to Lake County Wine Country via Napa Valley, Calistoga, and the scenic Highway 28, to visit California’s best-kept secret wine region with unmatched serenity and beauty. Let our passionate guide-drivers take you on this fascinating custom tour – a journey away from the large bus tours and crowded wineries. Enjoy Lake County’s stunning scenery, dramatic landscape and gorgeous rolling vineyards overlooking the beautiful lake. As you wind and twist on the uphill roads in Lake County, you will make several stops along the way to sip on local vintages and chat with local wine makers. Many are among the top wine makers in Napa Valley and have since relocated to Lake County where they started their own wineries.

Lake-CountyEnjoy champagne and wine in a rustic winery while admiring the serene views of Lake County. You can also ride with wine growers in a tram or 4x4 jeeps to reach more remote vineyards located at higher elevations. You also have the option of having a picnic lunch with a glass of refreshing wine at a winery. Your tour guide can also arrange a visit to old caves where wines are aged and you can taste your favorite wines directly from the barrels and presented by a wine connoisseur. You will be pleasantly surprised by the number of small and charming wineries that are tucked away in Lake County. In addition to visiting wineries, there are a number of fun outdoor activities like hot air balloon riding, hiking, biking, golfing, sailing, mountain climbing and wildlife watching that can be included during this tour. If you are visiting during harvest season, be sure to set time aside to physically watch these noble grapes being harvested manually.

Golden Horizon Travel will arrange your hotel accommodation and wine tasting reservations so you don’t have to. We will make reservations for you at a rustic hotel with stunning views of the lake or at a casino hotel if you want nightlife ambiance.

Lake County Wine County consists of over 8,300 acres of wine grapes found on rich slopes of costal volcanic mountains and rest in fertile soil of the valley floor. It is very warm during the day but cools off significantly at night which makes Lake County an ideal environment to grow grapes and produce top of the line wines. Lake County, known best for its Cabernets and Merlots, is popular for its climate, volcanic soils and elevation (1,550 feet above sea level) which creates a drier product and less pesticide is used.

Vineyard photosHistory and geography of lake county

Lake County Wine Country was formed in 1861 from parts of Napa and Mendocino counties. 10 years later it was transformed from a general agricultural valley into a grape growing wine region. After the Prohibition era of 1920, Lake County went from less than 95 acres to over 9,000 acres of vineyards. Due to the increasing number of grape-growing regions in Lake County, the area has been divided into several American Viticultural Areas (AVA) that include: Clear Lake, Benmore Valley, Guenoc Valley, Red Hills Lake County, High Valley. Geographically, Lake County is located about 115 miles north-east of San Francisco. Lake Country is surrounded by Napa Valley on the South, Colusa County on the East, Glenn County on Northeast, Mendocino County and Sonoma County on Southwest.
