Redding and the surrounding areas are becoming more and more popular with wine lovers! Shasta County is home to diverse grape varietals of exceptional quality due to veiled micro-climates and the unique terrior in its foothills. These thriving vines, combined with determined winemakers, make for award-winning wines and beautiful afternoons spent escaping the valley heat and enjoying unparalleled views.
Whether you want a pairing recommendation with your meal, a weekend day trip for some tasting, or just a glass with a few friends, Redding and its neighbors have it by the glassful.
In downtown Redding, enjoy a glass while listening to live music at Vintage Wine Bar & Restaurant or across the street at Market Street Wines. Enjoy a full bodied red with your steak at Market St Steakhouse, or take a date to Moseley's Family Cellars for a tasting.
If you want to get out into the country and see the grapes themselves, there are several wineries in and near Redding. In fact, the Inwood Valley is one of the newest American Viticultural Areas! Anselmo Vineyards & Restaurant is about 30 minutes east of Redding, and Dakaro Cellars is in nearby Whitmore. If you'd rather head west, try Alpen Cellars or One Maple Winery, in Trinity Center and Lewiston, respectively.
Heading south will bring you to Burnsini Vineyards in Cottonwood. The winemaking monks at New Clairvaux are tucked away in Vina, which is about an hour's drive from Redding. Of course, you can always map out a weekend to see them all!
Redding also celebrates its wine lovers with events like the annual Beer and Wine Festival, Taste of Redding, and many more! If you came to Redding to stroll the Sundial Bridge or paddle the Sacramento, a great glass of wine if the perfect way to close out a fun day. Cheers!
