Each year, we celebrate the grape harvest by inviting our friends to join our member wineries and get in on this most exciting time of year. This year is the 25th Anniversary of the event so be sure to join us for a special celebration.
BIG CRUSH is a grand time to see the harvest in action and this year will be no exception. Saturday, October 7th and 8th, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. you’re invited to see the Crush in full swing. Scenes of teeming vineyards, trudging tractors, bustling crush pads are accompanied by incomparable Amador wine region hospitality! Creative food & wine pairings, a variety of live music, and harvest activities are presented by warm & friendly family wineries.
Check back soon for more details on how Prospect Cellars will be celebrating.
The AmadorArts Winefest is our annual benefit event, and largest fundraiser of the year.
The second Saturday of each November, Shenandoah Valley Wineries and Sutter Creek Shops join together to create a unique Main Street Wine Tasting Event.
With the purchase of a ticket, guests receive a commemorative wine glass and the opportunity to taste more than 25 Amador County wines in the unique shops of Main Street in Historic Sutter Creek. At the end of the evening, guests return to the Sutter Creek auditorium for dessert tastings, live music and our large Art, Wine and Gift Auction. Winefest is made possible by the generous support of local wineries and businesses. The money raised at this event makes up 25% of our annual operating budget, and enables us to continue our community programs, such as Arts Education and TGIF Free Summer Concerts.
