Unfortunately, state and local guidelines, along with a profound interest in the continued safety of our staff, guests and volunteers mean that we will not be able to hold the Amador Four Fires Festival again in 2021. We plan to be back with new great ideas and experiences for you in 2022! Stay tuned!
In the meantime, several of our wineries here in Amador Wine Country didn’t want the year to go by without some sort of Four Fires celebration, so they have put together special offerings for guests for the weekend of May 1-2. Each offering reflects the theme and spirit of the Amador Four Fires festival – the best of Amador County through the lens of food and wine from the regions of the world that inspire winemaking in Amador County.
Vino Noceto will be offering a special Four Fires Tasting Flight Menu w/ wines from Italy, Portugal, and California. Tasting will be $5 and select wines will be on sale over the weekend. We will also have Pacific Coast Pasta Food Truck here on May 1st and Pokerville X-Over Food Truck on May 2nd.
Amador Cellars will be offering regional flights of wines from Italy and the Rhone Valley and Chef Justin Lewis will be onsite grilling lamb over an open flame to pair with these wines.
Reservations for wine tasting will be complimentary and can be made at:
and food can be ordered upon arrival for an additional cost.
La Mesa Vineyards
Join us at La Mesa May 1 for live music on the terrace with a return performance by singer and acoustic guitarist Dustin Heer. May 1-2 we will be serving a special flight of Italian and Rhône wines, our specialties here, including a barrel taste of our highly anticipated and soon to be released Barbera Blanc and our new sparkling Primitivo Rosé.
Enjoy a delicious flight of Viognier and Barbera here at Feist for Four Fires weekend.
Unfortunately, the regional 2021 Four Fires Event has been cancelled. This immersive wine and food experience has become a favorite for us and for you.

PARTIAL PROCEEDS DONATED TO THE AMADOR COUNTY FAIR FOUNDATION
FARM TO FUTURE
The rural county fairs are the original ‘Farm to Fork’ movement.
But with the kinds of challenges facing rural county fairs these days, we more think of our mission now as ‘Farm to Future.’ Amador Vintners Association is committed to helping meet that challenge. A portion of the proceeds from Amador Four Fires go directly to the ACFF.
