The Amador Vintners Harvest Wine Festival is quite literally a festival to celebrate harvest time in wine country. During harvest time, winemakers throughout the county are checking to see the ripeness of their grapes in the vineyards, checking to make sure sugar amounts in the grapes are level, checking the weather and a million other things that are needed to ensure that wine lovers such as you get the best wine possible. In the middle of this time when locals are harvesting their grapes, they also come together to celebrate that harvest time has once again to Sutter Creek. This year, join in the celebration and spend an evening enjoying catered food as well as live entertainment from a whole slew of rock and roll, folk, and country bands. Of course, there will be wine flowing all weekend as well!
