The Amador Vintners Association is proud to announce the return of the Barbera Festival, now in its 10th year, to the historic Terra d’Oro winery September 9, 2023. Festival goers can taste Barbera wines from over 40 wineries across California in this beautiful outdoor setting nestled in the Sierra foothills. Along with the grand tasting, festival goers can enjoy gourmet food from top chefs, live music, local artists, and a new Premier Access area with limo and bus parking. The festival highlights the popular Italian wine grape varietal, Barbera, which is a lesser-known varietal in the U.S., despite its popularity with Gold Country vintners like those in Amador County. Some of the oldest plantings of Barbera are in Amador County at Terra d’Oro winery, making it the perfect backdrop for this year’s event.
