Amador Wine Country gets “Down to Earth” - Earth Day Fete - Sat Apr 26

A celebration of Sustainable Farming in California’s Smallest Incorporated Town

As part of the Wine Institute’s “Down to Earth” month, Feist Wines will host an Earth Day Fete Saturday, April 26, from 1p.m. to 4 p.m. in Amador City in their “recycled” tasting room which once housed a western saloon.

“Created by Wine Institute—the association of 1,000 California wineries and affiliated businesses—this month-long celebration raises awareness of California's leadership in sustainable wine-growing and winemaking. Wineries across the state will engage consumers, policy leaders, media and trade withsustainably focused festivities to learn about California wine's eco-friendly practices and the people and places behind them.”

As part of the festivities Feist Wines will pair their award winning wines with organic farm to table tapas. The menu includes bocadillos de Tortilla Espanola, a traditional Spanish bar food which consists of a Spanish omelet made with local potatoes served on organic Andrae’s Bakery baguette ($9),  a Fra’ Mani charcutterie plate ($12), local Cheese Plate ($9), and Picholine olives ($4).  Wine club members receive a discount.

Winemaker Tony Feist will play Americana music with dobro legend Allen Frank on the tasting room’s newly built stage made of repurposed wine pallets.  The duo plays a combination of country, rock and the blues and recently opened for NPR acclaimed Mandolin Orange.

The Feists have long been committed to sustainable food, grapes and winemaking.  “Our commitment to good food began at the Berkeley Farmers markets,” says Susan Feist, owner.  “For us, how and where it is grown and its affects on the earth and everyone on it are important.” 

As part of their commitment to sustainability they are about to release an Amador County Shenandoah Valley Primitivo made from biodynamically grown grapes.  The Feists buy all of their grapes from small family farmers. 

Winemaker Tony Feist uses a hands off approach when producing wine in small lots with minimal intervention.   He sources the highest quality grapes and his stewardship produces wines of quality and distinction.  The earth day party also marks the winemakers birthday.  Birthday cake will be served after3 p.m.

Also available at the event will be organic vegetable starts for kitchen gardens.
