The Amador County Wine Cellar is a quaint wine bar located in the Kitchen Store in Amador City, opposite Andrae's Bakery The focus of this wine bar is to showcase wonderful wines from Amador County Wineries or wines made from Amador County grapes.We also feature the smaller, out-of-the-way wineries and those that do not have a tasting room. We want to provide exposure to the wineries that are not on the normal wine-tasting route. As the cellar is a wine bar (and not a co-op tasting room), we are also able to sell wine by the glass. We will usually have 6-8 wines open for tasting. Often times we will have more than one bottle of a particular varietal open, (a mini-flight) - great for comparisons. We also offer tastes of Gourmet chocolates from Chocoholic.com that are available for purchase. Our selection of wine related gifts is awesome! Currently we have 13 wineries and 31 wines. – Description from Dragac

  • It being earth day tomorrow I thought this would be a fine time to explore attitude towards the whole organic/natural/biodynamic movement. I reached out to some wine professionals to get their opinions about these wines, but before I turn the stage over to them I’d like to explore the situation briefly.Before we consider the value of these wines...

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

  • In years gone by I have drunk a lot of Zin, but it is almost always consumed within 2-3 years of the harvest.  I have let some high alcohol zins (specifically Opolo Mt Zin) go for 4 years and they had turned flabby and off tasting.  Last night I came across a bottle of Seghesio Sonoma 2007, which is their cheapest and simplest zin, and had it.  ...

  • I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week.  So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent.  Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a...
