Eat, Drink, and Be Me
Grass Valley is a hidden reserve for both artisan food and wine and there is no shortage of world-class dining and wineries in town. Several of the restaurants feature local California-style cuisine, which is internationally known for the quality, fresh produce, and fruit it is able to grow due to its temperate climate. There are 13 local wineries offering unique tastings of their yield, so use a tour as an opportunity to see how the local wines compare to those in the Napa Valley of northern California. You will find that the landscape is varied enough in and around Grass Valley to produce very different flavor profiles.
