Behind the Cellar Door

Behind the Cellar Door

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 7th and 8th , 2014 from 11 am to 4 pm.

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.

Become a Winemaker for an Afternoon!

Saturday, February 28, 12PM
Saturday, March 14, 12PM
Saturday, March 28, 12PM

Enjoy a step-by-step, hands-on wine blending experience.

First, you’ll taste a blended wine from the Wine Tree Winery.
 
Next, you’ll taste three wines: Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre and learn their history and discern their unique characteristics.
 
Then, you’ll mix several different blends to see which you like best.
 
Everyone has their own preferences, so you’ll get a chance to create a wine that appeals to your own taste. Once you discovered your preferred blend, you can take home a bottle of your very own creation!
 
Space is limited. $45/person, includes the approximately 2 hour seminar and a take-home bottle of your unique wine blend.

Feist Wines’ tasting room is developing into a center for culture.  The storefront which once housed a gold rush saloon has become a community gathering place for big city quality music.

Friday, March 20th at 8 pm.  Willie Watson Returns to Feist Wines.

His first show at Feist in January sold out two weeks ahead of time and the at capacity tasting room was filled with soulful Americana music.

This is a show not to be missed.  Tickets are $25 for general admission and are available at the Feist Wines tasting room or at feistwines.com.

Feist Wines is a small lot, artisan winery in Amador City and has been producing wine for three years and promoting music in their tasting room housed in a 19th century western saloon.  Winemaker Tony Feist plays the guitar and fiddle and performs regularly at the tasting room with the Allen Frank Doghouse Blues.

Bob Malone & Trysette at Sutter Creek Theatre

Two singer-songwriters,  one piano.  Our fabulous Steinway grand hosts 2 great artists!
 
Bob Malone, currently John Fogerty's keyboardist, has an impressive list of CD releases, playing New Orleans style blues, rock, and more. Bob Malone’s high energy blues, ballads, and rock, gutsy vocals, and amazing piano virtuosity have impressed audiences around the world for years. He loves playing our Steinway grand piano and has referred artists to the Sutter Creek Theatre just to play that piano.
 
Trysette grew up on the northern rivers of NSW Australia and with influences such as Elton John, Carole King, James Taylor, it's no surprise that her lyric writing is intuitive and intelligently sensual.

 The Deed is Done! Come Celebrate at the Preston Castle!
 
To celebrate the acquisition of the deed of ownership, the Preston Castle Foundation is holding an Open House at the majestic Preston Castle.
 
There will be a brief ceremony at 12 Noon. The Castle will be open from Noon until 4:00 pm for people to wander the unrestricted areas and take in the history and grandeur of what was actually the administration building for the Preston School of Industry, the first major attempt in California at rehabilitating, instead of just impris­­­oning, young offenders. Opened in 1894, the Preston School of Industry became a leader in the juvenile prison reform movement by giving convicted boys a real chance at life by educating them not only in academics, but in all of the useful trades of the time. Closed in 1960, when the Preston Youth Authority moved into a new administration building down the hill, the Preston Castle was left to deteriorate due to weather, vandalism, and general neglect. It now serves as a vacant, but vitally important landmark for Ione, Amador County, and the Mother Lode.  It is a California State Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.  It is the mission of the Preston Castle Foundation to preserve, rehabilitate, and utilize the historic Preston Castle site.
 
Food vendors will be on hand.

Enjoy a step-by-step, hands-on wine blending experience.

First, you’ll taste a blended wine from the Wine Tree Winery.
 
Next, you’ll taste three wines: Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre and learn their history and discern their unique characteristics.
 
Then, you’ll mix several different blends to see which you like best.
 
Everyone has their own preferences, so you’ll get a chance to create a wine that appeals to your own taste. Once you discovered your preferred blend, you can take home a bottle of your very own creation!
 
Space is limited. $45/person, includes the approximately 2 hour seminar and a take-home bottle of your unique wine blend. Discounts are available for parties of 2 or more – please call for information. Wine Tree Farm offers Wine Blending Class on most Saturday’s from 12 pm, and by appointment. If none of these dates work, please call. We do offer private sessions.
