  • Amador Four Fires Festival is a new kind of wine and food festival celebrating four wine regions that inspire the award-winning wine making and wine growing of Amador County, paired with international traditions of open flame cuisine. The experience for the guest will feel sophisticated without being distancing: white tents, courteous volunteers, beautiful accoutrements; an attention to detail.
  • In addition to stellar food and wine, attendees can participate in abundant activities including tastings and seminars showcasing the talent of Amador purveyors of olive oils, honeys, chocolates, artisan baked goods, ciders, cheeses, and more. Additional seminars will focus on wine education and wine growing.
  • At the event site, the grounds are divided into four zones, with each zone representing a wine region: the South of France (Rhône), Italy, Spain/Portugal, and “Heritage California” (claiming Zinfandel and Mission). Within each zone, chefs prepare open fire dishes reminiscent of that region.
  • Donation made to the Amador County Fair Foundation and its projects to ensure the long term viability of the Fairgrounds as a host to our County Fair and as a year-round event venue. Additional community partners include Boy Scouts of America, Tri-Counties Wildlife Rescue, APAL; Future Farmers of America
