Tehama County recently received recognition for its wineries tucked away in the high elevations of Manton and the small town of Vina.

The altitude of the vineyards provides cool nights during the hot summer growing season, according to the website. The vines are planted in well-drained, volcanic soils on arid slopes. As a result, the grapes have great tannic structure and firm fruit acids.
