More Than Tastings: Amador County Wine Country Educational Ecotourism

We absolutely love exploring the wine regions of Northern California. Over the past decade we have gained insider access to the top wineries and vintners in the region and want to share this experience with small, select groups of wine lovers and visitors to our area. We have hand selected these vintners not just for their outstanding wines but also for their focus on education and inclusivity.

Allow us to take you on a journey to Amador County where we will explore the key varietals in the area: Barbera, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Rosé, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Each bespoke experience is developed with your personal preferences in mind. We focus on delivering a journey that will connect you with more than just the wine that each vintner is producing – we will teach you about the vines, the history of the region, and the growing environment itself. We also focus on making our footprint in this delicate ecosystem as minimal as possible.
