Reviewed January 11, 2012

I am so grateful that they saved this building. It is now a lovely destination for an afternoon of wine tasting. If you time it right, you can catch the sunset which is beautiful.

“Variety of Wineries in One”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

If you don't want to drive to multiple wineries, visit the Old Sugar Mill to try 7 different wineries in one place. I've been here multiple times for a wine event and to share with visiting friends. It's also nice to visit in the summer time when there's music and special events open to the public. This place also makes it available to rent for weddings or special occasions.

“Top Quality Wine Tasting Near Sac”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

The Old Sugar Mill provides quality wine tasting driving distance from Sacramento. With multiple great quality wines in one stop, the Old Sugar Mill is a unique and quality wine destination. Clarksburg is a small, quaint, friendly country town just South of Sacramento.
The wine quality is very close to Napa's higher quality wines. The Herringer label and the Clarksburg Wine Company are must stops.

The drive out to the Sugar Mill is an experience in itself, winding along the Sacramento River. Parking is free, and the people are friendly. On occassion, there are bands and events on the weekends. It is also a great place for receptions and private parties.

“Great wine, great atmosphere, and so close to Sacramento!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

The Old Sugar Mill is an amazing destination. It is located in the Delta area, just south of Sacramento. My husband and I go time and time again. The converted old building in itself is worth the trip, when you factor in the wine, it is great. There are 6 or 7 wineries under one roof, so it is easy to sample many varieties. Todd Taylor is without a doubt the best wine , all reds, and some of the best in the entire state. Clarksburg Wine Company is doing some really nice whites also. a great afternoon!

“Great place to cool off and taste the wine”
Reviewed March 20, 2011

This old mill now holds the sample rooms of a half dozen local vineyards. They have done a nice job of creating a great atmosphere. For $5 you get samples of 6 wines. They you go down the hall and do it over again. The staff is nice (they are samplers themselves). When you leave take a bottle or two. Apparently they host catered meals and wedding parties too.
