Amador Wine Country is located in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Foothills. We call it “The Heart of the Mother Lode” because of the gold rush that made this area famous in the 1800’s.
Since Amador County was once home to the California Gold Rush it has numerous Gold Mines and Old West Towns in the region to explore.
Amador County has been the home to superior Zinfandel for over a century. Zinfandel came to Amador County in the wagons of Italian immigrants during the California Gold Rush. The Mother Lode was rich with gold and teeming with thirsty pioneers. After the boom, Amador’s population numbers collapsed like an old mine shaft and many of Amador’s Zinfandel vineyards were replaced with prune and walnut orchards. Luckily, there was enough demand for Zinfandel that some of the original vineyards remain today.
