Join us for a full weekend of wine, rafting and fun on the American River!



Join us for a fun-filled, two day outdoor adventurous wine weekend! Our journey takes place on the American River, where gold was discovered at Sutter’s Mill in 1848. Enjoy two days of rafting down the Class III South Fork which runs through the stunning foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

This area is world-renowned for both its rapids and its serene natural beauty. Let our hosts, EarthTrek Expeditions do all the laboring while you enjoy the ride (beginners welcomed and encouraged!). Wine will be the highlight of the evenings, with wines featured from deLorimier, Matrix and Wilson Wineries – all three properties where Diane Wilson serves as winemaker!

All weekend you will “Strike it Rich” as you pan for gold on the American River on Saturday morning, enjoy gold medal wines, enjoy a thematic “Gold Rush” party with a sing-a-long at our campsite. All event prospectors will receive special wine discounts.



Two days of rafting + two nights of camping + all meals from breakfast Saturday through lunch on Sunday = The Ultimate Weekend!
Plus – deLorimier, Matrix and Wilson wines served each evening!
