El Dorado County's wine country sure looks like a winter wonderland right now. Two feet of snow was dumped on the area earlier this week, which might've looked pretty and festive to passers-by, but was an icy headache for winery owners. Power outages and broken pipes shut down a slew of wineries, while some were simply inaccessible due to snow.
The good news: most El Dorado wineries are expected to be up and pouring wine this weekend - but be sure to pack some mittens and the heaviest jacket you've got. It'll be a cold one in them thar hills.
