Sogno Winery in Shingle Springs, CA (El Dorado County, California)
Sogno Winery is the best-kept secret in the Greater Sacramento Area ("Sogno" means "dream" in Italian and is pronounced "sewn-yo".) I would rank them as the #1 Northern California Winery outside of Napa/Sonoma Wine Country because they not only make an extensive selection of wines...but they really know how to make exceptional bottles of wine!
A visit to the Sogno Winery in Shingle Springs is a delightful way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. It is located between El Dorado Hills and Placerville on Highway 50, just before Red Hawk Casino. Sogno Winery offers a large wrap-around patio with lots of seating that overlooks their vineyards.
