This was our first time to Amador County, so we had no idea where to go, and we only had one day, so I decided to book a tour with Gold Country Wine Tours. Turned out to be a great decision. We were the only couple booked for our Monday tour. Cathy (owner/driver/tour guide/etc.) is THE BEST. We had a "friend of a friend" connection at one winery, and Cathy was very patient while he gave us a tour of the winery and the vineyard. We then went to several of her favorite places. And the picnic lunch from Amador Vintage Market, eaten at a picnic table overlooking the vineyard at Story with a bottle of Zin, was top-notch. Cathy has a special connection to the area, because she started as a fan of Amador County, driving up on weekends and finally decided to quit the rat race and start GCWT with her husband. Her love of the area and its wine really comes through. I would highly recommend GCWT to anyone who wants an outstanding day in Amador County drinking great wine without the danger/hassle of driving.
