Clarksburg Wine Appellation
The Clarksburg wine appellation is surrounded by the cooling waterways of the Sacramento River Delta and rich farmland to make the picturesque setting of Heringer Estates Vineyards and Winery. Weighted drawbridges and swing bridges give access to the lush vineyards nestled among family farms that have been settled for generations. The northern appellation border parallels the town of Freeport, while the southern border runs along Twin Cities Road, extending to the Sacramento Deep Water Channel. Warm summer days and cool breezy nights represent the climate in the Clarksburg wine appellation.
Clarksburg’s premium wine grape micro climate compares with the best regions in California. St. Helena, Sonoma and Paso Robles.
Clarksburg is located in the Northern California Central Valley and is often considered a part of the larger region of Lodi, however Clarksburg has very unique climate and geographical influences that distinguish the region as it’s own. These specific influences make Clarksburg one of the best and most diverse wine grape growing regions in California:
- There is limited summer fog influence giving the region the benefit of a few more hours of sunlight at the same monthly high temperature. This enables growth of a diverse portfolio of premium wine grapes, all achieved with less risk and higher probability for consistent quality.
- Clarksburg’s climate has significant less probability for spring frost, allowing more consistent productivity, quality and evenly ripened premium wine grapes year after year!
- Clarksburg experiences less rainfall during critical wine grape growing stages to ensure the highest most consistent quality wine grapes available in California.
