The view of the Sand Fire from Vino Noceto Winery.
Amador Wine Country provides a leading industry for Amador County, with more than 40 wineries sprinkled among the open fields and vineyards of the Shenandoah Valley and neighboring areas. With the flames of the Sand Fire so near, is there a possibility that the deluge of smoke will alter the flavor in the grapes for this year’s wine harvest?
