Perfect for wine enthusiasts and newbies alike, Behind the Cellar Door is a weekend filled with world class Amador wine, delectable food pairings, educational seminars, and hard-to-find vintages all in an intimate Amador Wine Country setting. Behind the Cellar Door is one of the most entertaining and educational wine events anywhere.
Behind the Cellar Door guests receive a commemorative wine glass for all of your weekend tastings, as well as thoughtful food pairings, themed seminars, entertainment and demonstrations guaranteed to enhance your knowledge and appreciation of remarkable Amador wines.
How does it work?
When you purchase your tickets online choose your starting winery (from our 43 member wineries). There, on the day of the event, you will pick up your wristband, passport and commemorative wine glass to begin exploring all that we have to offer at member wineries across Amador Wine Country.
Taste next year’s vintage straight from the barrel, help the vineyard manager prune her vines or learn about the balance of art and science in creating the perfect blend. Everything, even a commemorative wine glass, is included with the ticket price.
New for 2020, each guest will receive an extensive program booklet that includes a fold out map of participating locations and details of the Behind the Cellar Door offerings for each location. Additionally, the program booklet includes incredible offerings from all participating wineries that will be good for one-time use through June 30, 2020. How about an exclusive winery tour or complimentary tastings for up to four guests? Taste a specially selected older vintage or receive “wine club member benefits for a day”. The extended offerings are as varied as the character of our member wineries and provide an additional incredible value for attendees.
