The “Vaquero” Package

($875 – 4 People – 2 Nights)

Enjoy a weekend for four up in California Gold Country east of Sacramento
nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Northern California.
Your party will stay for two nights in the 2-bedroom Valley View Cottage. This
charming and sustainable guest cottage was designed and built using two
shipping containers, a unique indoor/outdoor living concept. One container
hosts the living room and eat-in kitchen while the other, houses two bedrooms
and two baths. The two containers are connected by a spacious wrap around deck
with a wonderful view. The Valley View property is located just minutes from Saluti Horse Adventures in Somerset, CA on the Casa Contenta property. Nearby hiking trails allow you to get close to nature at your own pace.

Your “Vaquero” package includes a Vineyard trail ride for 4 on horseback at Saluti Horse Adventures which will begin at the Saluti Ranch and takes you through the enchanting El Dorado Forest, winding through Saluti Cellars Vineyards, then back to the barn. We will stop for a photo opportunity during the ride and learn fascinating history about this Gold Country property.

Wine Tasting experiences will be scheduled after your trail ride. Your package includes complimentary Wine tasting experiencing at four wineries:

Saluti Cellars
Saluti Cellars is known for its unique, hand-crafted wines that reflect the intense varietal characteristics of Sierra foothill grapes.  Saluti Cellars is the frequent recipient of Silver, Gold and Double Gold wine country awards. 

Cantiga Wineworks
Cantiga’s “natural” approach to winemaking means living in harmony with the land and working with–rather than in opposition to–nature. Cantiga practices “minimal intervention” wine making, keeping a light touch and allowing wines to ferment and age at their own pace, without manipulation or chemical additions.

E16 Winery

E-16 vineyards have been a labor of love for its owners for generations, producing wines that tell a story of tradition, passion, and excellence.

Element 79
The cool breezes from the Sierra Nevada combined with this winery’s high elevation and mountainous terrain create the perfect conditions for growing the finest grapes at Element 79. 

And finally, the “Vaquero” package includes 10% off with a complimentary dessert at the Grizzly Den, one of our favorite Gold Country restaurants. This charming BBQ favorite of locals was destroyed during the devastating Caldor fires of 2021 when the town was burned and lost 1500 residents. The owner is helping to rebuild this quintessential California town, one meal, one house and one donation at a time.
