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.
