From their beginnings, vines brought in from cuttings stuffed into miners' boots during the Gold Rush, the California terroirs east of Sacramento have boomed and busted in equal measure.Some (Sierra Foothills) have receded from view. Others (Lodi) have been used more as a bulk wine source by big producers than as an opportunity to express place.But today, whether in the bayou-green vegetation on the other side of the levee in the Delta, the flat hot expanse of Lodi or the high-elevation granite of the Foothills, some of the most interesting and diverse wines in the state are emerging: not coastal Pinot Noir, not cult Cabernet, but something both older and entirely new.
