Have you ever dreamed about becoming a winemaker? Perfect for wine enthusiasts and newbies alike, Behind the Cellar Door is a weekend filled with world-class Amador wine, delectable small bites, barrel samples, hard-to-find vintages and wine education, all in an intimate Amador Wine Country setting. For more than 25 years, Amador Vintners’ member wineries have invited guests Behind the Cellar Door for one of the most entertaining and educational wine events anywhere.

Guests will be able to reserve experiences at 5 different wineries each day from over 40+ wineries in Amador in the beautiful Sierra Foothills. Enjoy tasting flights, behind the scene vineyard and winery tours, and an educational experience delivered by our winemakers and winery teams. 

Here at Dobra Zemlja Winery, (meaning 'good earth' in Croatian) join us as we give guests a peek ‘behind the cave door’ with an educational barrel and vertical tasting experience of our signature port-style wine, Kikas, mali 'little' bites that pair perfectly with a select flight of our ‘Big Amador Reds, No Lightweights’, and fantastic wine specials. Zivili!
