SacBee: MikeDunne on Four Amador Wineries

by TomHill » Wed May 09, 2018 11:52 am

Mike Dunne, one of my most favorite of writers, as an article in today's SacBee on his recent visit up to Amador:
AmadorWineries

GwinllanEstate is a new one to me. Focusing on SparklingWines, a rarity in the Foothills.

And also IronHubWnry, which turns out to be the old AmadorFoothill property of Ben & Katie Zeitman (who, I understand, now live down in Jackson).

And a shout-out to BillEaston's "1852" (when Zin first came to Calif) Zin.

Particularly interesting is AndisWines. They have a Semillon (a wine I always thought would do well in Amador), and a skin-contact Viognier. Particularly interesting is they are making Schioppettino, one of my most favorite of grapes. It is, of course, not a "real" Schioppettino....just another Calif imposter.

Anyway, good read. I need to get back up to Amador again.
