I was awakened recently, when my fiance and I spent the weekend in Amador County — Gold Country, as it is better known — a jewel of a destination within 45 minutes from home.
Although Amador County has drawn visitors for more than a century, in recent years a newfound appreciation for its spectacular offerings has resulted in a surge of enchanted visitors.
Amador County’s assets include the lush Shenandoah Valley’s award winning wines, the gently rolling western slopes, and majestic mountain backdrops to the east. Some of the state’s finest skiing, golfing, dining, and lodging find their home in Amador County, the perfect destination for a weekend of history, culture, and recreational opportunity.
Wine aficionados will welcome exciting news as they converge at Cooper Ranch in Plymouth, California, located in the Golden State’s scenic Shenandoah Valley wine county in beautiful Amador County, for the first-ever Barbera Festival.
