The Immersion

Immersion into a Region

Amador Four Fires is an immersion into a region, not just the food and wine, but all the senses are ignited. Seminars, cooking demonstrations, locavore tastings, art walk, and more…


All day long meet the winemakers, chefs, craftsmen, owners, families and residents that make up the local businesses. Amador's a chance to engage in conversations, meet the "artists" and find out why so many have "discovered" this intimate and authentic region.


Seminars are 30 minutes with speakers upfront and up close. Engage in topics as diverse as Blending Techniques to Amador Soils and Wine to food pairings, growing organically, winemaking techniques, the craft of brewing, and much more.

And More...

Explore the Renwood Sensory Station. Sample local purveyors of olive oils, candies, coffees, micro-brewed beers; cider. Take the festival home with you: Wine Sales (20% off retail on all wines on event day only). Cooking Demonstrations, and more.
