Description
Travel through the astounding beauty of the Sierra Foothills' Apple Hill area and visit some of the most picturesque and productive California regions.  Total tour time is seven hours.
 
Tour stops include the Historic Boeger Winery where you will feel like you stepped back in time to the Gold Rush days.  This award-winning winery, built on the site of an 1850's homestead, is still using the original home and distillery today.  Sample some of their spectacular estate bottled wines.
