The Event

TerrA d'oro winery Sept 12, 2020 11 AM - 4PM

The fate of the 2020 Barbera Festival is still in flux. We are waiting for additional information and guidance from state and local authorities as to how or if we can proceed. Regardless, there will be some sort of celebration of Barbera and other Italian wines over the weekend of September 12-13 as long as we are permitted to do so, but the final structure is yet to be determined. We look forward to celebrating our local award-winning wines with loyal Amador Wine Country enthusiasts soon!

Follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information about our 2020 and 2021 events and everything happening in Amador Wine Country at @AmadorWine.
