Outstanding tasting experience! We were outside (because of COVID-19) but the breeze, view, hospitality and wines were over the top. Afterwards, we enjoyed a picnic on the cool grassy knoll and picnic tables. A much needed get-away!

Cooper Vineyards is one of the best vineyards in Amador County, and their patriarch, Dick Cooper is famous in the area for his amazing grapes. This is a family-owned and operated place and it is likely you will run into someone from the Cooper family during your tasting. Their Italian and Rhone style wines are absolutely delicious, and their Dicembre port-style dessert wine is one of our favorites. They have great wines for every price range - if you want a real treat, splurge on the Sangiobello or Anniversary. Cooper also gives back to the community with lots of charity events and their wine club events are some of the most popular in the area.

We come up to taste at least once a year, and to buy some of their delicious olive oil. The winery also holds charity events here, one that we attend is the Spaghetti Western. UC Davis Cancer Research is the beneficiary. Spaghetti is the main course, with salad and a silent auction held. Entertaining is of course Dick Cooper and his band. Long tables are set up outside of the lawns surrounding the tasting room. My sister in law once while trying to keep the bidding going, found herself a winner. Paying $500.00 for a weekend in a local B&B.

Nice setting, knowledgable staff, and top Amador County wines make this a must stop on your Amador County wine tasting adventure. In particular, Cooper stars in its Italian varietals. Barbara is a top varietal for Amador County wine makers, many including Cooper present this is their best. Coopers Barbara is excellent, offering full fruit and a nice long finish. Interestingly, the Amador Barbaras different significantly from those found in the Piedmont area of Italy, their home. The Piedmont Barbaras are high in acidity, lighter bodied, and show best when pared with food. The Amador Barbaras are more full bodied, fruit forward, and stand on their own better. That said, the wine that impressed me the most was the Sangiovese, one of the best California versions I have ever tasted. Bright creamy red fruits are followed by a long evolving finish. Our wine tasting guide credited the power of this wine to the blend of Sangiovese grapes grown on the site, including the Sangiovese Grosso clone that power one of Italy's top wines, Brunello di Montacino. We finished our tasting experience with a picnic lunch at the edge of the lovely estate vineyard. Fantastic experience!
