Festival goers can taste Barbera wines from over 50 wineries across California in this beautiful outdoor setting nestled in the Sierra foothills. Along with the grand tasting, festival goers can enjoy gourmet food from top chefs, live music & local artists.
The festival highlights the popular Italian wine grape varietal, Barbara, which is a lesser-known varietal in the U.S., despite its popularity with Gold Country vintners like those in Amador County. Some of the oldest plantings of Barbara are in Amador County at Terra d’Oro winery, making it the perfect backdrop for this year’s event.
New this year will be a special Premier Access area with select live music, special catering, and an array of wine varietals to enjoy from our winery sponsors. The Premier Access area will be located in the barrel room, it will give Premier Access guests a chance to relax and stay cool in the seated lounge. Bringing a limo or bus? Premier Access passes have got you covered with limo and bus parking.
* White wine and other Italian Varietal's will be poured by our sponsored winery tents.
