Considered one of the nation’s “Five Up-And-Coming Wine Regions” according to USA Today, Amador wineries open their cellar doors the first weekend in March for one of their grandest — Behind the Cellar Door slated for March 1 and 2.
Special focus at Behind the Cellar Door is the educational aspect of this two-day event. Seminars like: Bray Vineyard’s Hone your sensory skills; Drytown Cellar’s Exploring the link between wine and spirits; or Sera Fina Cellar’s Winemaker Want-to-be’s Rhône varietal blending, are just a few available to guests.
Other creative ways to enjoy the Amador wine experience on March 1 and 2 may include unique food and wine pairings, a relaxing Creekside respite with a chilled glass of white or enjoying a little jazz with a sultry syrah.
Tickets are $50 pre person presale for Saturday and Sunday, $35 per person for Sunday only and $10 for designated drivers. The cost is $5 on the day of the event. Presale tickets are available until Feb. 25 at 11:55 p.m.
New this year is the Winemaker Reception as a way to kick off BCD on Friday evening. This classy affair takes place in Terra d’Oro’s striking barrel cellar from 7-9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 28. Tickets for the reception are $60 per person and a weekend package price for the three days is $100.
As a fundraiser for the American River College Culinary Arts Program and Amador Vintners Association, Winemaker Reception guests will have an intimate opportunity to visit with Amador’s star winemakers. Special varietal stations will be set up with specific food affinities to match the region’s signature varieties like barberas, zinfandels, viognier and more.
Tickets are on sale now for the Friday night reception and the entire weekend at amadorwine.com.
