BEHIND THE CELLAR DOOR
March 1 and 2, 2014
Fans of Amador County wines will not be fed a steady diet of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and other ‘mainstream’ varieties when they visit the historic region’s charming small family wineries. Instead, you will be treated to a cornucopia of old-vine zinfandels, syrahs, sangioveses, barberas, viogniers and other ‘off-the-beaten-track’ , which flourish in Amador’s sun-bathed hillside vineyards. These delicious, food-friendly wines will be showcased at the Amador Vintners’ annual “Behind the Cellar Door” weekend wine extravaganza on March 1st and 2nd , 2014 from 11 am to 4 pm.
The event features tastings from barrel and bottle at 39 Amador County wineries, along with a diverse array of entertainment, demonstrations, tours and seminars. Library and vertical tastings, live music, gourmet foods, numerous winemaker dinners and perhaps Sunday brunch fill out the weekend’s festivities.
New this year is a winemaker reception on Friday February 28th. Tickets are SOLD OUT.
Presale tickets are NO LONGER AVAILABLE. Tickets for the event only will be available at participating wineries during the event for *$55 for both days, *$40 Sunday only and $10 designated driver*Must be 21 or older to purchase.
