"Down to Earth"
in Amador County Wine Region!

Did you know that April is the California wine industry's   "Down to Earth" month? Indeed a month to celebrate environmentally friendly winemaking practices.  In the Amador Wine Region, every day is a celebration of the earth.  The fresh air, open land and small hand tended vineyard plots give way to hand hewn wines. 

During the month of April our vintners find a variety of ways to celebrate Down to Earth Month:  The freshness of spring in a glass with cool white wines like Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Rosanne.  You can taste the earth in their Syrah, Barbera and Zinfandel.  The Amador Flower Farm is impressive with its dramatic array of flowers  - you can take home something to kick-start your flower garden!  Make plans to come to Amador Wine Region to celebrate. Go to for a list of  
Down To Earth winery offerings.    

Mark your calendar for our second annual
"Get Your Wines Off Rte. Hwy. 49!" This is a  week long passport style event from Friday July 11th through Sunday July 20th.  Travel scenic Rte. 49 in Amador County anytime during the 10 days and enjoy exclusive offerings from participating wineries-- and a special gift for every passport holder! 

 For more information call: 1-888-655-8614
e-mail or visit 
the Amador Vintners website at
 Remember, we're just a short ride from Sacramento & Reno 
and a beautiful journey from the Bay Area!
April is Down to Earth Month!

Please join us for Down to Earth Month in April, the third annual statewide celebration that Wine Institute is coordinating to highlight California's leadership in sustainable winegrowing and other green initiatives.  Enjoy 
green-themed tours, activities or special offers from Amador County wineries!
