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.
