Very interesting wines, most on the intense, rich side. Good service. If you are into more heavy wines, this is a must visit.

Our 4th year visiting Amador County wineries (en route from a South Lake Tahoe stay and home to Monterey Bay area). We love staying at the Sutter Creek Hotel. We visited 4 wineries on Shenandoah Road this day. Other wineries visited: Young's, Borjon, Scott Harvey. We enjoyed our friendly hostess and the old black lab Calle who greeted us. We bought a bottle of the GSM blend (Grenache noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre) for $35, and a reasonable $5 tasting fee was waived with purchase. They have a beautiful barn down below the tasting room that looked amazing for weddings!

I had been told by two different winemaker friends in the Valley to try the Amador Cellars Sangiovese. Well, that sometime was last Wednesday afternoon when friends of the business and wine lovers came to visit us. We headed first to Amador Cellars tasting room on a beautiful day and in a fantastic mood for good wine! As we drove up, first impression was quaint and nicely understated. Walking in the door we noted that there were 2 staff behind the counter and only 3 other guests in the tasting room, great ratio! One of the staff placed wine glasses in front of each of us while letting us know that their was a $5 a head charge unless we bought the obligatory bottle. She poured a wine without telling us what is was and left never to be seen again. We waited and waited for a second pour. Finally I pardoned myself to intrude on the other staff member, who was chatting with the other 3 guests, and asked if she would please pour the second wine for us. She did but without telling us what the wine was. She then went back to her 3 waiting guests. With the room empty and the only conversation coming from the other 3 guests and the remaining staff member, it was at this time I realized that the staff member was not chit-chatting with a "guest", it was a group of their neighbors or friends. It was at this moment that I felt very unappreciated as a customer. To get our third pour I had to again interrupt the conversation next to us. The staff member came over to pour for us but never said what she was pouring and missed pouring my friend's glass. She then went back over to her conversation. At this point I was furious with my friend holding back a wry smile. Not wanting to start a yelling match with a worker who could not care less about her customer, I pulled out my wallet and put a 20 in front of her for the tasting fee as we walked out. She looked at me but never made a peep. We went to the winery across the street to re-group and have a snack. We began talking with the other patrons next to us at this winery and they laughed, stating that the same unwelcome experience had just happened to them! This winery must be rolling in the dough in order to treat customers this thoughtlessly. I have faith that this is not the demise of Amador County but only the bad apple in the barrel. By the way, the three wines that we did try were okay. Never did get that Sangio though. Summary, 4 stars for the wine, 0 for the help = 2 stars overall Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

It is very unfortunate that you had such a bad experience. I apologize that you did not receive better service. We are constantly trying to improve in every way we can. This is not something we have heard from other customers in the past, however we take pride in giving our customers a genuinely good tasting experience and take this type of criticism seriously. We will address the problem and do whatever we can to ensure better service and a more positive experience in the future.

We've been coming to this winery for about 8 or so years now. It never fails to provide anything less than excellence. Seriously, we have never tasted anything there that is less than something we would buy. The Zins are the bomb as their consistent awards reflect. Same goes for the Sangiovese. Same goes for pretty much everything they have! This is the only winery who's club we have belonged to since the beginning! Other wineries come and go as they show greatness to get you in the door but seem to fail at keeping our interest and taste buds satisfied. Inconsistent. New wine makers and other reasons, to be sure but you don't get that with Amador Cellars. Simple, consistent and excellent. It doesn't hurt that the staff, including Kelly, Michelle and the family keep it real. Just another reason to love this place. As others in the area, they have events for members and nonmembers alike. The barn on the property is a great venue for the large events.

We always visit Amador Cellars when we wine taste in Amador County. Never miss them. Recently received a special email from them with no extra shipping charges for extra orders on our club membership. Had to take advantage of this but will still visit. Friendliest winery around. Syrah is the best every year!
