From the moment the idea took shape to produce premium, small lot wines, we have stayed focused on the land, the fruit, the wine, and the life. With that in mind, our mission is to produce fine wine, from exceptional grapes, grown in a high altitude setting. As we continue to learn about balance and harmony, and their relationship to winemaking, we consider the individual elements from which wine is derived: soil, water, fruit, and craft. From the composition of the soil, to the handling of the grapes, our wines speak to this relationship.

More about Terra d’Oro winery:

Amador County, the epicenter of the Mother Lode, has witnessed its fair share of fortunes over the years. It was here during the Gold Rush that pioneers discovered treasures buried in the rich earth; it was also here that miners planted vineyards to quench their thirst. Little did they know that they’d be sowing the seeds of our eventual good fortune.

Today it is our privilege—and pleasure—to make world-class wines here in the Amador foothills. Terra d’Oro wines were first released in 1973 under the Montevina label, the first Amador County winery to produce wine since Prohibition ended. We quickly earned a reputation for crafting robust, full-flavored red wines, Zinfandel and Barbera in particular. Word spread, and a short time later, Amador’s historic wine industry was revived.

With 400 acres of magnificent acres of estate vines—including several historic, old-vine vineyards—Terra d’Oro now produces delicious Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Chenin Viognier, Barbera, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and more. We’re incredibly fortunate to be part of the long history established here more than 150 years ago, and hope that if you’re ever in the area, you’ll stop by for a visit.

SUTTER CREEK CALIFORNIA

“Although John Sutter’s sawmill was about forty miles away, Sutter Creek is in the heart of the California Gold Country. Sutter made camp here, trying to avoid the gold rush crowds, but miners soon spilled in and made the town. Mining boomed and then faded…making way for today’s contagion: wine fever. In and around Sutter Creek you can mosey along sidewalks shaded by filigreed balconies.”  – New York Times 36 Hours

Yesterday & Today

The town derives it’s name Sutter Creek after John Sutter. Sutter as early as 1844, had in pursuit of timber, established whipsawing pits and an outdoor manufacturing business named Pine Woods. It was this area near the creek, which runs behind City Hall, that became the site of new and permanent settlement. It is told the settlement started because of a single tent raised there for miners to use on rainy Sundays when they could not get to Jackson or Drytown. Sutter Creek truly established itself permanently when Gold quartz was discovered in 1851 and the became a major supply center.

Among other notable historic landmarks like Knight Foundry and the nearby Kennedy Mine, visitors should take some time to enjoy the historic wine country surrounding Sutter Creek. Wine production in the area dates back one hundred fifty years, when pioneers seeking their fortunes in gold found the ideal climate for growing wine grapes. Today Amador County boasts over 25 wineries and is famous for its red Zinfandels.
