Amador Vintners: "Joy, Peace & Zin" - Through December 31

Print Sale at Cooper Ranch to benefit cancer research

PRINT SALE AT COOPER RANCH TO BENEFIT CANCER RESEARCH – Sat & Sun, Dec 14 & 15 at Cooper Ranch, 21365 Shenandoah School Road, Plymouth.  Amador Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) will have a print sale at Cooper Vineyards December 14 & 15. Prints and cards of historic Amador County sites by Helen Landgraf will be available for purchase. Helen's prints are proudly displayed in the winery tasting room and are greatly admired. The print sale is an opportunity to purchase unique holiday gifts. All proceeds from this sale will benefit cancer research. The ACRF Board would like to thank everyone for their support of our activities. As a result of our annual fundraiser, the Spaghetti Western, we recently presented a check for $50,000 to UC Davis for cancer research.

Get your tickets for 2014 "Behind the Cellar Door" early! Holiday special for Sunday-only tickets ends Dec 31

Fans of Amador County wines will not be fed a steady diet of Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and other ‘mainstream’ varieties when they visit the historic region’s charming small family wineries.

Instead, you will be treated to a cornucopia of old-vine zinfandels, syrahs, sangioveses, barberas, viogniers and other ‘off-the-beaten-track’ , which flourish in Amador’s sun-bathed hillside vineyards.

These delicious, food-friendly wines will be showcased at the Amador Vintners’ annual “Behind the Cellar Door” weekend wine extravaganza on March 1st

The event features tastings from barrel and bottle at 39 Amador County wineries, along with a diverse array of entertainment, demonstrations, tours and seminars. Library and vertical tastings, live music, gourmet foods, numerous winemaker dinners and perhaps Sunday brunch fill out the weekend’s festivities.

Presale tickets are *$50 for both days, *$35 Sunday only and $10 designated driver which will be available until February 25th at midnight. Tickets will be available at participating wineries during the event for $5 more each.

*Must be 21 or older to purchase. Tickets on sale now at www.amadorwine.com

During the month of December (ends Dec 31st at midnight) enter the code HOLIDAY5 and get $5 off your weekend on Sunday only tickets.
