Access Amador Thursday - Banner

Every Thursday, join select wineries and other wonderful businesses located in Amador as doors open a bit wider, and locals smile a bit brighter as many businesses offer visitors a little something special on that day only. Offers vary by business but could include a secret splash of a special wine, a small savings on a room rate, a complimentary bite, and so much more. Discover the participating businesses below and stop by on Thursdays for Access Amador.

Here at Dobra Zemlja Winery, we will be offering exclusively on Thursdays, a sneak peek barrel taste or other sample of an upcoming release of one of our signature 'Big Amador Reds, No Lightweights'. We look forward to seeing you on Thursdays for this special offering!
