Fine Eye Gallery

Reviewed By Richard1140 - Penn Valley, California

The staff is very friendly, the facility is an old mercantile from the Gold Rush, and they have a varied and excellent selection of items--jewelry, glassware, leather, art, etc. from a variety of accomplished artisans. Prices are very fair---the overhead here is much less than Carmel, yet many items are the same.

I've also enjoyed the Scott Harvey wines. The Barberas have always been amazing but it was a little shy of my expectation this year. The reislings from New York grapes have always been my favorite but there was no production this year. Overall, the wines at Scott Harvey have always been wonderful. This year, my favorite was its $40 port. I'm not a port drinker but this one was wonderful!

Sutter Creek is located in the Amador County wine-making region. There are lots of wineries to choose from, but if you have limited time, head to the town of Sutter Creek. There you can visit the downtown tasting rooms of several wineries including Cinque, Andis Winery Scott Harvey. JR at Cinque is so knowledgeable and personable. He'll make your visit memorable. Also downtown are cute boutiques for ladies apparel, antique shops and candy stores. Nice restaurants in town too including J&D's Steakhouse where we had huge hamburgers. Lots of locals eating there as well as tourists.

BellaGrace Vineyards

Bella Grace, est. 2006, is beautifully sited in the Sierra Foothills, with tasting locations in the Shenandoah Valley and historic Sutter Creek. Our family run operation achieved state-wide recognition for its wines within a few years after opening, winning two "Best of California" awards for Barbera and Grenache Blanc wines. Bella Grace continues to strive for excellence through sustainable wine growing and hand crafted winemaking. The vineyard property, in the Shenandoah Valley, grows twelve distinct wine grape varieties and three varieties of olive trees. Sustainability also extends to winemaking; much of the wine making is performed by hand, a hillside wine cave stores and ages barreled red wines, and a new solar project provides 100% of our winery power requirements.

Although we have been traveling to Amador County for years, I had never heard of this winery. By happenstance the son of the owner/winemaker was in the Imperial Hotel giving a private tasting to the owner hoping she would stock some of their wines in her bar. We got to talking about the puppy we were traveling with and he invited us to their country tasting room (they have one in downtown Sutter Creek as well) saying dogs are welcome.

There were two unique features to this country tasting room. The basic barrel room/tasting are being in a cave and, on this particularly sunny March day, the tasting area being moved outside to take advantage of the weather. We had stocked up on bread, crackers, cheese & salami so it was the perfect place to have a picnic lunch. All the better that our puppy could enjoy the visit as well.

After tasting the available wines we selected 2010 Reserve Chardonnay to compliment our meal. Before we left our group of 6 purchased a number of individual bottles. A nice wine tasting experience.

Sutter Creek Theatre

Reviewed By Larry A - Jackson, California, United States

The finally each year seems to be Sourdough Slim and his friends for what seems like forever. This year was no different. The place was pretty packed and Sourdough didn't not disappoint! Together with Faux Renoir, Cactus Bob, Prairie Flower, Robert Armstrong and all, they enthralled the crowd with both humor, their repertoire of their well-known and original songs and of course, Christmas favorites. Overall, the performance went into overtime to much appreciation of the audience! My friends who had never been here and only have heard me talk about both places were totally thrilled and can't wait to return for another pleasant and joyful evening!

All in all, Byron and Laura have created a favorite and intimate venue with this great, nearly 100 year old, community asset!

Baiocchi Tasting Room

Reviewed By JudyStacia - Campbell, CA

Our ride from the Bay Area took a little over 2 hours and it was well worth it! The Baiocchi wines are unique and tasty. Greg and Sharon Baiocchi explained what grapes were in each wine and shared the background of the tasting room. The counter is made from an old bowling alley lanes. They have paid attention to each and every little detail in the wine and the tasting room. In addition to their great wines, Greg and Sharon are gracious hosts. We felt very welcomed. They are an enthusiastic and delightful couple who work extremely well together. We will return soon to purchase some more of their delicious wines.

We thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon at Knight Foundry which is nationally recognized as a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark and a California Registered Historical Landmark. The Foundry is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been named by the National Trust for Historic Preservation as one of America’s eleven most endangered historic places. Well informed docents at each station clearly and excitedly explained each phase of this water powered foundry operation.

Miller Wine Works is a treasure! We had heard of Gary Miller before entering their tasting room and we delighted to see him there. We had a great conversation with him tasting through their well balanced, nuanced wines - wines that are meant to be paired with delicious food. He is the winemaker and owner; a former chef as well. What a happy, hospitable man - obviously doing what he was meant to do. Recommend this sweet little tasting room 100%.

Avio Vineyards

Reviewed By coastalgardener - Wilmington, NC

We met Stefano at a wine tasting on a Mediterrenean Cruise (one of his wines was featured). When we mentioned that we were planning a trip to California he invited us to visit his winery in Amador County (central California). The vineyards are beautiful and as you walk up to the tasting room you feel like you have just stepped into Italy. We were lucky that day. Stefano was around and took us on a wonderful tour of the property, including the really nice event space and guest lodging.

You can tell Lisa and Stefano have put a lot of time and love into this winery. We felt welcome and enjoyed tasting the excellent wines! Amador County has quite a few wineries and the area is definitely worth a visit. We were wishing we had had more time there!
