This is the perfect time to experience the changing scenery of our gorgeous outdoors and enjoy beautiful wine tours through the Sierra Foothills wine country.
Nestled between Sacramento and the hills of Amador and El Dorado counties, Rancho Cordova makes a perfectly located basecamp to explore both wine regions and savor the local Syrahs, Viogniers, internationally acclaimed Zinfandels, and many, many more.
Check out our winery maps of Amador County and El Dorado County to get a full idea of exactly how many options we have to explore.
During your winery experience, be sure to keep your body (and your soul) warm and fueled up at one of our delicious restaurants with picture-perfect settings sprinkled throughout the winery hills. Here, you can indulge your taste buds from small plates to international cuisine and everything in between.
When you’re not sipping our local wines, take some time to stroll our bountiful farmer’s markets. Pick up some fresh, local produce or hand-made baked goods to enjoy during your visit or to take home and savor.
A visit to Rancho Cordova isn’t complete without a trip to Apple Hill. Nearly 30 farms and orchards make up the area, offering you-pick adventures, apple-flavored everything, pony rides, ciders, bakeries, restaurants, and views you only dream about. Definitely make a point to visit one of our Christmas tree farms for that perfect holiday centerpiece.

Now get to planning your weekend getaway, and be sure to take advantage of the Sierra Foothills Wine Country Passport and enjoy complimentary tastings at participating wineries when you book your hotel stay in Rancho Cordova.
