Sample the bounty of the harvest with a winery tour in the stunning Apple Hill region of the Sierra Nevada foothills on Wednesdays, on the El Dorado County Wine and Harvest Tour in Apple Hill. These wineries in Apple Hill are some of the best! 

Travel through the astounding beauty of the Sierra Foothills' Apple Hill wineries area and visit some of the most picturesque and productive California regions. Total tour time is seven hours.
