Amador Rains Don’t Dampen Four Fires

May 12, 2016 - Saturday’s Amador Four Fires was well organized. The only glitch was the rain, but as I've seen happen at other festivals, the rain became a positive . . . it created camaraderie and quick friendships as people crammed in together under the tents.

TASTE News Service May 9, 2015 – Amador Four Fires, a new concept wine and food event launched its inaugural festival on Saturday, May 2 at the Amador County Fairgrounds in Plymouth. Nearly 2,200 wine and food enthusiasts came to sip and savor at a unique festival designed to showcase Amador’s finest products and to benefit the Amador Fair Foundation.  

The exceptional attendance at a first-time event surprised even its co-producer Deidre Mueller who said “We were hoping to get some local and regional interest, but the attendance was far beyond anything I could have hoped for.”

The event offered a wealth of sensory activities. Over forty wineries poured 140 wines from the four wine regions that inspire Amador winemakers and growers: Southern France, Italy, the Iberian Peninsula and one dubbed “Heritage California.” Cuisine traditional to these regions was prepared on site over open-flames. Attendees could enjoy food and wine seminars, cooking demonstrations including all-day Cowboy Chuck Wagon cooking and tastings of olive oil, honeys, candies, cider and beer from local purveyors, while hearing music by two favorite local groups.

Buoyed by the success of its first Four Fires event, organizers have already announced May 7, 2016 as the second annual gathering. More information can be had at amadorfourfires.com.
