In honor of Prohibition the oldest winery in El Dorado County (they opened in 1974) seemed like a good spot for a cache. Boeger means "archer" or "bowman" in German.
During the era of prohibition, the winery continued to produce a little sacramental wine for the local church and enough for the personal use of the Fossati family. Most of the vines were pulled out though and the land was converted to orchards. The Fossati’s were stellar producers of high quality pears until a disease rampaged the entire region and the property was sold to the Boegers, to be converted back to vineyards. Some of the old vines from the 1800’s are still here.
Placed with permission of the owners, I hope this cache brings as much enjoyment over time as their wine has brought us. Please visit during their open hours only and respect the property. Wine tasting daily from 10 am to 5 pm.
Coordinates seem to jump about due to the trees...so I have added a hint that should get you in the right spot to look. If you get better coords let me know.
