Visiting our small, family-owned wineries is a delight. All are nestled along scenic backroads in some of California’s most picturesque rural settings and offer gracious, unpretentious hospitality. You can sip Amador’s award-winning wines – including our famed old-vine zinfandels – while gazing at the beautiful, snow-capped Sierras or picnicking under grand old oak trees surrounded by vines. And Amador wineries are easy to reach, just 45 minutes from the state capitol of Sacramento and two hours from the San Francisco Bay Area.
When you’re not wine-tasting, tour our quaint Gold Rush-era towns, enjoy our wonderful restaurants and charming bed-and-breakfast inns, and partake of a plethora of exciting recreational activities. It’s all available in Amador County, the jewel of the Sierra Foothills, where there’s gold in the ground and in your glass.
The 37 member wineries of the Amador County Vintners Association are primarily small, family-owned operations whose proprietors make and sell their own wines and greet visitors in their tastings rooms.
