Amador County, California Wine Tasting
August 17, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The historic Amador wine region traces its roots back to the Gold Rush of the 1850s as settlers came looking for gold in the California foothills. Many of the prospectors were immigrants from Europe and brought with them their love of wine. Vineyards were planted and wineries opened up to supply the thirst of the miners. Some plantings from the Gold Rush continue to thrive in Amador County today. The region is home to over 45 wineries and over 3700 acres of vineyards planted in rolling hillsides. Long a home of amazing Zinfandels, growers have planted, and winemakers are now making wines from a diverse array of grapes including Barbera, Sangiovese, and Syrah in the reds, and Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Viognier in the whites, just to name a few.
The region has garnered acclaim for full bodies, rich fruit flavors in its wines with balance and harmony that pair well with numerous foods and cuisines. Award-winning restauranteurs and sommeliers are seeking wines from the Amador region to complement their menus and enhance their wine lists.
Join us to explore some of the best the region has to offer!
Tickets are Free! Saturday August 17th from 3-5pm
