Zinfandel is our passion, and lucky for us we are blessed with perfect growing conditions for this world-class varietal. Whether enjoying our Amador Zinfandel, or one of our three unique single vineyard offerings, you’ll experience the region’s trademark "Shenandoah spice" that makes our Zins stand above the rest.
In addition to producing top-notch Zinfandel, we find it hard to ignore our Italian heritage, mainly because Italian varietals make such food friendly wines. There’s something about our climate, elevation, and rich rocky soil that allows traditional Italian varietals to not simply thrive here—but actually achieve true greatness. Many early Italian settlers sensed this, and widely planted vineyards with the grapes that they knew best.
We are extremely fortunate that two of Italy’s most revered red wines—Sangiovese (Tuscany) and Barbera (Piedmonte)—thrive in the rocky, iron-rich soils of Amador County, and develop into lush, well-balanced wines suitable for aging or immediate consumption. Our Amador County Rosé, made from Nebbiolo (Piedmonte), displays a wonderful off-dry style preferred by Europeans for centuries. For our white offerings, we carefully selected vineyards throughout California for our Moscato (Piedmonte) and chose grapes grown in Santa Barbara for our Pinot Grigio (Alto Adige) resulting in crisp, vibrant, easy-drinking wines.
Try some—and let Terra d’Oro inspire your palate!
