Sierra Vista Winery and Vineyards is tucked away in Central El Dorado County in the Pleasant Valley Appelation. It is one of the oldest wineries in the County dating back to the 1970's. It is family owned and operated. You will find mostly Rhone style selections at this Winery although local favorites like Cabernet and Zinfandel are also offered. Don't be fooled, El Dorado County wineries is big red wine country, but you'll fine a more delicate style in some of John's wines here at the higher elevation of Pleasant Valley/Placerville California.

What you'll find at Sierra Vista beside well crafted wine. You'll find an attractive parlor for wine tasting with a number of goods besides wine for sale. The picnic area is very attractive with summer shade, and in spring you'll find snow capped mountain vistas from the winery that are hard to match anywhere. This is the Crystal Range of Desolation Wilderness west of Lake Tahoe.
