Nestled in the western foothills of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range sits Amador County, home to more than 2,700 acres of wine grapes. The elevation in the area ranges from 1,200 to 2,000 feet above sea level and the region sees between 36-38 inches of annual rainfall. This allows most growers in the area the opportunity to dry-farm their vineyards, which is important because it contributes to low crow yields—this is essential to producing full-bodied wines. The climate is similar to that of Calistoga, in Napa Valley; however, it cools down a bit more which helps to retain the much needed acidity in the grapes. Many of the vineyards in the area are head trained and are quite old. Some reaching the century mark. Zinfandel is king in the region, and it’s what we do best.
