Amador County's 20th Annual Winefest is Set for November 11

Tickets are now on sale for the 20th annual Winefest, the popular walk-about wine-tasting event that will take place in Amador County on Sutter Creek’s historic Main Street on Saturday, November 11th. For comfort and safety, the number of tickets to be sold is limited to this event, a fundraiser for AmadorArts, a non-profit established 35 years ago. Winefest usually sells out.

Over 25 Amador County wineries will each be pouring in one of the unique shops. Check-in starts at 4:00 pm in the Sutter Creek Auditorium, 18 Main St., where guests will receive an event glass, map, and wrist band and may start bidding on the Silent Auctions of Art, Wines, and Premier Offerings of Gifts and Event Packages.

New this year will be the exclusive showing of the magnificent life-size Feather Fairy sculpture created over a three-year period by internationally known artist Lorra Lee Rose. Not a part of the auction, it can be purchased for a specified sum worthy of its artistry.

Main Street will be ready for the wine-tasting at 4:30 pm until 7 pm. Then, the auditorium will feature live music, tastings of desserts and after-dinner wines, and final auction bidding.

Advance tickets of $40 may be ordered using PayPal at www.amadorarts.org. Local locations are listed on the website. At the door on Nov. 11, if still available, tickets will be $45. 209-267-9038.
