California’s smallest incorporated town delivers an authentic Wine and Cheese Tasting on Old Highway 49 on Friday, Sept. 27 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Sixteen wineries will bring a party to the streets of Amador City at Downtown Wine.

The wineries will pour their award-winning wines on Old Highway 49 amidst the construction zone of the new Amador City bridge. Guests will drink fine Amador wines to the surreal backdrop of a charming old western town and heavy equipment. The scene looks like one that might be found on the back lot of Universal Pictures.

Fine cheeses and artisan breads will be provided by Andraés bakery to complement barberas, zinfandels and myriad of varieties of wine. Crystal wine glasses are included.

The Jack Riordan Jazz band will play on the steps of Andraés bakery. Riordan is a native to Sutter Creek and his musical career began in Amador County where he quickly surpassed his teachers in talent and gifts for music. Jazz took him to San Francisco where he now resides and plays professionally. His stellar music will enliven the festivities.

At Feist Wines, Allen Frank and His Doghouse blues will kick the music up. Feist offers Best of Class barbera, zinfandels and Rhone varietals in this 150 year old tasting room originally built as a Western saloon. Farm to fork box dinners by Lucy’s Spice Box will be available at Feist.

At 30-year-old Buffalo Chips Restaurant will be killer gourmet burgers on Friday nights made from Swingles Beef and served on Andraés ciabatta. Revelers will pair Amador barbera with real homestyle burgers for the all Amador experience.

The Imperial Hotel serves dinner and provides seating on its magical back patio. The century old hotel has a full bar and hotel rooms overlooking the town.

This tasting provides a tremendous sampling of foothill wines and includes: Amador Cellars, Scott Harvey, Baiocchi, Bray, Miller Wine Works, Cooper, Drytown Cellars, Feist Wines, Runquist, Sera Fina, Story, Terra d’Oro, Vino Noceto, Legendre, Wine Tree Farm and Baywood Cellars.

The town will be lit up with string lights and votive candles to showcase these fine wines on this early fall night.

Part of the proceeds will go to support local agriculture and the soon-to-be Amador High School garden and vineyard.

Tickets will be available on the day of event for $25 and includes a commemorative wine glass.
