Amador County, the epicenter of the Mother Lode, has witnessed its fair share of fortunes over the years. It was here during the Gold Rush that pioneers discovered treasures buried in the rich earth; it was also here that miners planted vineyards to quench their thirst. Little did they know that they’d be sowing the seeds of our eventual good fortune.
Today it is our privilege—and pleasure—to make world-class wines here in the Amador foothills. Terra d’Oro wines were first released in 1973 under the Montevina label, the first Amador County winery to produce wine since Prohibition ended. We quickly earned a reputation for crafting robust, full-flavored red wines, Zinfandel and Barbera in particular. Word spread, and a short time later, Amador’s historic wine industry was revived.
With 400 acres of magnificent acres of estate vines—including several historic, old-vine vineyards—Terra d’Oro now produces delicious Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Chenin Viognier, Barbera, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and more. We’re incredibly fortunate to be part of the long history established here more than 150 years ago, and hope that if you’re ever in the area, you’ll stop by for a visit.
