View California Wineries Map

Although California’s wine-making dates back to the 1700’s, it wasn't until the second half of the 20th century that California wineries established themselves as world leaders. While continuously challenged by other U.S. wine-growing regions, California wineries continue to account for approximately 90% of U.S. wine production. California’s reputation for quality rests not only on an ideal climate, but also on the innovation and determination of California wine-makers. While many California wineries take full advantage of what technology has to offer, others have forsaken technology in an effort to produce natural, non-interventionist wines. This diversity is also represented in the variety of soils, climates and grapes grown. Nearly 100 grape varieties are grown in the state’s 90+ viticultural areas.

Scroll down for a comprehensive list of California wineries and click "map view" to access the advanced winery search. Whether you would like to visit a winery that provides beautiful vineyard lodging, has food available on-site to complement its wines, hosts vineyard weddings, or produces wines from organic grapes, we make it easy to find the best wine tour and tasting destinations in California wine country.
