Anyone going to Amador Weekend of Zin?

Posted by KPAUL, Feb 13, 2011.

We will be traveling to the Sacramento area on March 3rd and attending Behind the Cellar Doors, Weekend of Zin in Amador County for the weekend.  We LOVE Zinfandel and since there are 34 wineries participating it should be a fabulous weekend.  Has anyone ever attended this, and do you recommend any wineries in particular?

Yeah, this event is a weekend full of fun! Most all the wineries have specials on wine, great food and something interesting going on. Vino Noceto is always a great place to go and they're having educational seminars on their old vine Zin that comes from the oldest vineyard in the country, should be really interesting.

Another favorite is Runquist, their wines are outstanding and they're doing a wine trivia and smell test for the event. Should be fun!

You can also stop by the new visitor center in Plymouth and get some great recommendations. Have a great time!

I agree with JenaeP. Just make sure you have a DD, a limo, or some kind of car service. You will be enjoying a ton of wine, its impossible to resist. ;) 

I wanted to go this year, but sadly non of my friends can make it. Enjoy!!!

Thanks for the info and recommendations!   We'll make sure we hit those 2 places.  Salud!

We certainly hope you plan on attending and reccomend you purchase your tickets in advance at . Tickets can be purchased during the event at participating wineries but you will incur an additional $5 fee.  Better to save the money and buy more wine!

Thanks for your input, Amador Wine.

Have our tickets, have our lodging, will be with good company...looking forward to this event!  Just wish we could hit ALL of the participating wineries!
