From the Barbera Festival Organizers
We are excited to celebrate this, our tenth year, with you, even though we may not all be together.
This year we are bringing the Barbera Festival to you and having a scaled back celebration here in Amador Wine Country. We’ve assembled some engaging and insightful virtual events in which you can participate, made it super easy to order some of your favorite Amador Barbera and will culminate the festivities with two days of special Barbera-led tastings at select Amador County wineries September 12 and 13.
Partners near and far are offering some delicious dine “in” and take out menus for you to try, all paired with the Amador County Barbera you have come to love.
While COVID-19, wildfires and other circumstances won’t let us all gather in one place this year, we’ve worked with wineries across Amador to develop some great alternatives and we are already looking forward to seeing everyone back here in Amador County, California’s home for Barbera, in 2021!
From all of us in Amador Wine Country, grazie per aver festeggiato il nostro decimo anniversario con noi! (thank you for celebrating our 10th anniversary with us!)
