About The Event

Experience the Art of Winemaking.

The fate of the 2021 Behind the Cellar Door event 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 “exploration of winemaking” over the weekend of March 6-7 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.

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. 

Your passport will list each winery’s offerings for the weekend PLUS future offers from Amador Wine Country wineries and other local businesses.

NEW FOR 2020!

Your Passport will serve as your guide for the day and your round trip ticket to come back to Amador Wine Country! Each winery listing in the passport will show both their offering for Behind the Cellar Door weekend AND an offer for you to come back and use at a later date. So, hold onto your Passport and bring it back with you each time you visit Amador Wine Country from March 9 – December 18, 2020. 

Additionally, a few of our local hospitality partners also have offers just for you! Don’t miss a fantastic wine weekend but also a chance to score additional perks at your favorite wineries!!
