A taste of California grapes
It’s no secret that California’s vineyards produce some of the best wines in the country. Lucky us. Just under 20 minutes from our Kimpton Hotel Sawyer in downtown Sacramento, you’re invited to Clarksburg, an intimate and unspoiled region set alongside the Sacramento River. Known for its country roads, lush farmland, pear orchards, oak trees, brisk Delta breezes (perfect for petite syrah and chenin blanc) and of course, family-owned vines, you’ll have plenty to see, savor and sip. And, under an hour and half away, you can also visit the renowned Napa Valley and Livermore Valley Wine Country regions.
