Sequoia Mansion - Bee Bennett House with historic plaque

Wine Tasting in a 19th Century Wine Cellar

Our Placerville tasting room is in the wine cellar of the historic Sequoia Mansion, dating back to 1853. It was built by one of California's earliest entrepreneurs, Colonel Frederick Bee, and later expanded by Judge Marcus Bennett.

Located 1½ blocks north of Highway 50 and near Placerville's historic Main Street, the tasting room makes an enchanting stop if you're exploring the area's history. Sutter's Mill gold discovery site is only 8 miles away.

It's also a convenient stop if you're driving to or from the region's famous Apple Hill area or Lake Tahoe.
