Amador Foothill Winery

12500 Steiner Road

Located in the picturesque foothills east of Sacramento with a spectacular view of the Sierras, Amador Foothill Winery produces two classic vineyard-designated Zinfandels and is among the pioneers of Sangiovese and Aglianico in California.

Owner-winemakers Katie Quinn and Ben Zeitman also produce Sauvignon Blanc, Late Harvest Semillon, Grenache  and a Rhone-style blend called Katie's Cote at this 5,000 case facility.

Come visit Amador Foothill Winery, and explore the historic gold country: Amador Foothill Winery is located on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevadas between Sacramento and South Lake Tahoe. It is a one hour drive from Sacramento, and about two and one half hours from San Francisco. We are also the closest wine country for the Reno and Carson Valley areas - a lovely two and one half hour drive on Hwy 88 over Carson Pass.

Fantastic wine with an amazing view. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable (Dan is the man - he even made sure my 1.5 year old had crackers for a snack). Picked up a Grenache that is hard to beat! Will be back. Thanks again for the great experience.

A great modern winery with a stunning view. They also have a Grenache that stands proudly on its own.

We stumbled across Iron Hub winery on our latest trip to Amador. What a treat! We were very incredibly impressed with the perfectly manicured grounds, the breathtaking view from the tasting room, the friendly & knowledgeable staff, the music on the patio, & of course the wonderful wine! As if our experience wasn't perfect already, we were offered a little red wagon to use to carry our wine to our car, what a fun idea! Iron Hub winery is now a must stop every time we visit Amador!

The view from the tasting room and from the tables is gorgeous. You can see snowy peaks of Tahoe's desolation wilderness in front of you while tasting wines! The wines were good too (but it's always a matter of taste).
