About Amador Cellars:

Amador Cellars is a unique winery located in the heart of Amador County's lush Shenandoah Valley wine country. Built in 2003 of rice straw and concrete the winery and tasting room conveys Old World architecture and style that emphasizes simplicity, utility and function. Its two foot thick and sixteen foot tall walls impart mass and depth while the roof is covered in corrugated steel that was allowed to rust naturally giving the structure a timeless quality. It sits on a knoll overlooking rolling vineyards in the shade of a stand of Valley Oak. A perfect spot for enjoying a picnic and fine wine.

At 1,500 feet in elevation on soils derived from decomposed granite our estate vineyards are farmed to yield small crops of extraordinary tasting fruit -- the perfect beginning to vinting great wines. Our wines are made in a style that emphasizes varietal character of the fruit augmented by subtle oak and vanilla flavors from oak barrel aging. All of our winegrape is harvested by hand at the peak of ripeness, fermented in either oak barrels, open top bins or stainless steel tanks for 5 to 12 days and then aged in oak barrels for 8 to 20 months. We focus our attention on varieties that do well in Amador's warm climate -- Zinfandel, Italian and Rhone Valley varieties.

Still one of my favorites. If you like wine that has flavor and not water this is the place.

Went wine tasting there today. Their wines are amazing, great Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. Amazing tasting rooms and great customer service. Make sure to put them on your list the next time you visit Amador County wineries.
