Each Friday in Amador City, Feist Wines will host dinners composed of local, seasonal ingredients in its tasting room in California’s smallest incorporated town, Amador City.
Dinners will be catered by Lucy Spengler Gore, formerly of Yountville. Having relocated from the Napa Valley to Amador County, she has recently opened Lucy’s Spice Box, a community supported commercial kitchen located in the town of Volcano. Lucy’s food philosophy food matches that of the Feist family: “It should be grown locally and sustainably. The centerpiece of these dinners will be local meats.”
As veterans of the restaurant business, and transplants from gourmet centric Berkeley, Susan and Anthony Feist have long fostered an emphasis on local, fresh food and the community that it builds.
Their artisan wines share this philosophy, start with well farmed grapes and good oak, handle the fermenting wines with care and voila, great wine.
“We like to showcase our wines with excellent food,” said Anthony, “We make these wines to stand alone but there is a synergy that develops when you pair them with food from the same region.”
Feist looks forward to contributing to the culinary scene in Amador County.
The menu and pricing will vary weekly. The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at Feist Wines, 14173 Old Highway 49 in Amador City.
