|Sutter Creek Behind The Cellar Door
March 4 & 5, 2017 (First FULL weekend of March)
The Amador Vintners Association consisting of 42 wineries host their annual “Behind the Cellar Door”. This oenophiles’ dream included sampling a wide variety of wines, poured from the bottle or dispensed directly from wine barrels, interactive seminars, delicious foods and live music.
This event is designed to provide an intimate educational experience through seminars where visitors can talk directly to the winemakers and owners of our wineries, something that is truly unique to our wine region. In addition, each winery will be serving small hors devours to accompany it's wine.
This event continues to grow in popularity by providing a true learning experience for anyone interested in wine or winemaking. The Amador Vintners Association’s goal is to bring a higher regard to Amador County as a wine producing region.
“Behind The Cellar Door” originally started as the ‘Amador Vintners’ Barrel Tasting’ in early 1994, with 17 participating wineries. In 2004, the name changed to ‘Behind the Cellar Door’ at which time the seminars were added. The member wineries have more than doubled since then, with some local wineries expanding into historic Sutter Creek.
