Spend a half day discovering the hidden gems of the historic Delta, known as the ‘heart’ of California. The Delta is a network of intricate waterways, canals and sloughs, charming small towns steeped in lore, 50 plus islands, national historic landmarks, nature preserves and agricultural abundance tucked away just a stone’s throw from the Bay Area and Sacramento. The area is home to legacy towns that were established along the Sacramento River along with the steamboat trade. The famous ‘Delta breeze’ cools the land in the evening on even the hottest days, and its rich soil make it the perfect home to farms and wineries. The Delta is rich and mysterious, a labyrinth of draw bridges, legendary watering holes and even a haunted mansion. Our Taste of the Delta Tour will introduce you to a few local gems that represent the history of pear farming, wine making and the bounty of this region.
The day begins with a behind the scenes tour of family owned Hemly Cider in Courtland, hidden away among pear orchards and fields of corn. Hemly’s outdoor, picturesque tasting room is built from an old airplane hangar. After a guided tasting of their seasonal ciders and a snack, we move on with a pint and a tour of the cidery to learn how this popular beverage is made. Next up, a short, scenic drive up the road to a family owned winery in Clarksburg. Lunch includes a wine pairing. We then head to another hidden treasure, Silt Winery in Clarksburg. There we will learn about the terroir of The Delta wine region and enjoy a private guided wine tasting with pairings of cheeses, jams and chocolate, in their converted barn turned tasting room.
