Whether you visit us for one day or one week, Amador County is a pretty magical place to visit.

Here are a few ideas for how to spend your time when you’re not visiting Rombauer, of course.


One of the headquarters for the California Gold Rush, Amador County has a fascinating history around every bend. Three of our favorites are the Kennedy Gold Mine, Black Chasm Cavern, and the Knight Foundry Historic Water Powered Foundry and Machine Shop, all a brief and beautiful drive from our tasting room in Plymouth.


While “wine country” and “family-friendly” are not two words that frequently go together, there are activities for all ages when visiting Rombauer.

Amador Flower Farm, down the road from us in the Sierra Foothills, comprises of fourteen acres of gardens, including growing grounds, a potted plant area, and four acres of landscaped demonstration gardens. We love visiting in autumn for pumpkins and fall flowers.


Go back in time in Sutter Creek and Amador City. These tiny towns will bring you back to the 1840s when life was a little slower; the heart and soul of the Foothills haven’t changed.


Considering a trip to Tahoe? Swing through the Foothills on your way to or from South Lake for a fun and easy addition to a terrific trip.


Dining decisions are a bit easier in Amador, so if you don’t opt to pack a picnic, we suggest the Kitchen at Helwig for a quick lunch or Taste Restaurant for an incredible dinner. Both are within a 15-minute drive of the winery, and you may see a Rombauer team member at either, enjoying the wonderful food and ambiance of Amador.

Regardless of what else you do when visiting us, we hope your number one stop is at either tasting room. We encourage reservations (especially on weekends!) and our team is always around with helpful tips and tricks for visiting either location. Make a Reservation Today

See you soon!


We'll cheers to that
