Celebrate Valentines Day in Clarksburg Wine Country

To say that Clarksburg is off the beaten path is both a correct and an incorrect statement. A winding drive alongside the Sacramento River seems to take you back in time as you drive past the sleepy old mom-and-pop stores surrounded by the vineyards that produce most of Yolo County’s wine. But to get there, it takes just 30 minutes by car from the heart of Yolo County, and a scant 15 minutes from Sacramento.

These aspects make Clarksburg perhaps one of the best destinations in the area for a day trip, especially during the Valentine’s Day season, where lovers can forget about all the stress and troubles of everyday life at the annual Annual Port Weekend. more

Old Sugar Mill Walking Wine Tours

The tour then continues with a tour of the wine cellar and production operations. Guests then follow the tour guide through an engaging historic tour of the Old Sugar Mill property. When weather permits tour guests also get to walk through the vineyard and learn the grapes journey to the bottle. more

Taste at The Old Sugar Mill

OldSugarMillYoloCounty

Just 15 minutes from downtown Sacramento, 20 minutes from Davis, the Old Sugar Mill is a historic site undergoing a stunning transformation into one of the top wine-tasting venues in the country. Eleven wineries now call the Old Sugar Mill home, and more are planned for coming years. Music, food, and seasonal events dot the calendar. Set at the edge of a quiet Delta town, it’s also a fantastic venue for meetings and a favorite locale for weddings and other special occasions.

The venue is framed by historical old world brick walls, beautiful wine barrels, rustic windows, and artistry and craftsmanship with rich character. One of the notable features of the Mill is the soaring atrium, which serves as the concourse or lobby for the wineries and is the setting for many events. Lovely views appear in the glass walls on either end of this lobby, invoking a quieter time in the world.
