Eldorado Food & Wine
El Dorado’s history goes deeper than its mining relics and larger than life dredge. Food production in the area was vital for keeping thousands of miners working, and this little piece of history is easily seen as you wander through El Dorado. Many almond orchards can still be seen around town, as can ancient fig trees, as you explore the town you may even come across the old butchers shop. Wander a little further down the Woolshed Valley you will discover the remnants of the Chinese Market Gardens and the water races used to irrigate these gardens.
Today, this agricultural production is alive and well, with the region boasting garlic, chillies, cherries, wines, and even an apple orchard producing hand crafted cider. The old Bakery in the heart of El Dorado has lovingly had its old Scotch Oven brought back to life baking homemade bread like never before. Take the time to explore El Dorado’s fresh produce and farm gates and you will soon discover that there is more than gold to be found here.
