Friday, October, 05th – Sunday, October, 07th
11 am to 4 pm
Each year, we celebrate the grape harvest by inviting our friends to join our member wineries and get in on this most exciting time of year. Visit each of our participating wineries where you will be welcomed to our scenic foothills of Amador Wine Country by the entire wine community.
BIG CRUSH is a grand time to see the harvest in action and this year will be no exception.
Kick off the weekend at the Big Crush BBQ and Grape Stomp held at the historic Amador County Fairgrounds on Friday October 5th! Join us for an evening of great local food, live entertainment and, of course, award-winning Amador County wine! For those brave enough to feel the squish, sign up to participate in the grape stomp competition! (The BBQ and Grape Stomp is a separate ticket from the Saturday and Sunday activities.) For complete information on the BBQ and Grape Stomp click HERE.
Saturday, October 6th and 7th, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. you’re invited to see the Crush in full swing. Your ticket includes scenes of teeming vineyards, trudging tractors, and bustling crush pads accompanied by incomparable Amador Wine Country hospitality! Creative food & wine pairings, a variety of live music, and harvest activities are presented by warm & friendly family wineries across the county.
How does it work? Purchase a glass and wristband online or at the event on Saturday October 6 or Sunday October 7 and then spend the weekend exploring all that Amador Wine Country has to offer! Each ticket includes wine offerings, food pairings, entertainment (at many locations), special offers at all 40+ Amador Vintners’ member locations and a commemorative Big Crush wine glass to take home.
Please join us and enjoy the sights, sounds, and aromas of this exciting harvest season.
