Located on Historic Highway 49, Plymouth is in the heart of the Gold Country and is a perfect place to stay when visiting beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Amador County's Wine Region.
Amador County is now home to over 50 wineries. Many are situated near Plymouth, on scenic back roads in the picturesque rural terrain of historic California. Most Amador wineries are small family operations.
You are likely to meet an owner and winemaker where unpretentious hospitality is normal. While Amador County is justly famous for its Zinfandel wines, new Mediterranean varieties native to Italy and Southern France are beginning to make a fine showing and are becoming common in area tasting rooms.
Plymouth is located at Amador County's north end. In the 1850's Plymouth and nearby Pokerville grew up side by side. Plymouth Consolidated Mine produced over $13 million in gold. Remaining today is the Empire building, once a mining company's brick office.
North of Plymouth you'll find Nashville, once called Quartzburg, one of historic California's earliest quartz-mining districts. The first stamp mill in the Mother Lode operated in Nashville.
Plymouth hosts the Amador County Fairgrounds and is now considered a gateway to many wineries of Shenandoah Valley. Accommodations and camping are available.
