From the Napa Valley we head east into the Sierra foothills,where we discover Fitzpatrick Vineyards pearched atop a high hill. This shot was taken from the deck of their log lodge, which overlooks the western Sierras.For a great getaway in the El Dorado Wine Country...this is the place. A huge lodge with a pool, 5 bed and breakfast rooms and panoramic views such as this await the weary traveler.Fitzpatrick is the oldest winery in the community of Fairplay, which is just south of Somerset in the lower Sierra Foothills.
