About the Amador Foothill Winery

Amador Foothill Winery is owned by Katie Quinn and Ben Zeitman. It is located in the Sierra Foothills about an hour east of Sacramento. They have been producing wine since 1980 and currently make about 8000 cases a year. Zeitman is the vineyard manager and Quinn makes the wine.

The winery makes Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese, Fume Blanc and Semillon. Their Sangioveses and Zinfandels have earned Zeitman and Quinn considerable acclaim. They were among the first producers in California to make Sangiovese. Check out their wine club for some great deals.

About the Amador Foothill Winery

I particularly like Amador’s Esola Zinfandel. It has a velvety texture on the palate with spicy notes. It stands well on its own but can also be paired with heartier foods. Their Sangiovese Grand Reserve is also excellent. Keep your eye on this varietal in the Sierra Foothills.
