Big Crush Harvest Festival

Big Crush Harvest Festival

1st Saturday & Sunday
of October


Each year, we celebrate the grape harvest by inviting our friends to join our member wineries and get in on this most exciting time of year. Visit each of our participating wineries where you will be welcomed to our scenic foothills of Amador Wine Country by the entire wine community. BIG CRUSH is a grand time to see the harvest in action and you’re invited to see the Crush in full swing.

Your ticket includes scenes of teeming vineyards, trudging tractors,  and bustling crush pads accompanied by incomparable Amador wine region hospitality! Creative food & wine pairings, a variety of live music, and harvest activities are presented by warm & friendly family wineries.

How does it work? Purchase a glass and wristband at participating wineries online or at the event and then spend the weekend exploring all that Amador Wine Country has to offer! Each ticket includes wine offerings, food pairings, entertainment (at many locations), special offers at all 40+ Amador Vintners’ member locations and a commemorative Big Crush wine glass to take home.

Please join us and enjoy the sights, sounds, and aromas of this exciting harvest season.

Photowalk in Sutter Creek

Photowalk in Sutter Creek

Saturday, October 7, 2017
3-5:30 pm.


Amador County’s Photographer Larry Angier will lead a 10th Anniversary International Photowalk in Sutter Creek.

What is the Photowalk? It’s a social photography event where photographers get together to walk around, shoot photos, and have fun with other photographers. After the walk, participants have the opportunity to submit their best photo into a contest.

We will gather at Sutter Creek's new Miners Bend Park on Main Street where there should be good parking.Then we will wander some of the back streets of Sutter Creek for a couple of hours.There's no set schedule and folks are free to wander off on their own and follow their instincts. Sutter Creek, California, is an historic city in California's Gold Country known for its short but quaint Main Street and well-maintained historic homes and businesses. The walking should be fairly easy for most.

To sign up for this event go to: and search for Sutter Creek.

Space is limited and first-come, first served.
