Amador’s Premier Four Fires Food & Wine Festival Invites Guests to Ignite Their Senses with Award-Winning Wines


(March 29th, 2024, Plymouth, California) The Amador Vintner’s Association is excited to announce the 2024 Four Fires Food and Wine Festival, happening Saturday, May 4, 2024. The region’s premier food and wine event, Amador Four Fires combines the four global wine regions that have inspired Amador’s award-winning wines – France’s Rhône Valley, Italy, the Iberian peninsula, and Heritage California – with open-fire-roasted cuisine from top local chefs. 

Four Fires draws inspiration from four celebrated world-wide wine regions represented right here in Amador County: Rhone, Italy, Spain, and Heritage California. Enjoy over 100 award-winning red wines that have received gold medals and 90 points and above ratings as well as small lot or reserve wines that you can only taste in Amador. 

Held at the expansive and historic Amador County Fair and Events Center, Four Fires will take place in a beautiful outdoor setting with a historic Gold Rush-era backdrop. Along with tasting great wine, event goers will get the chance to enjoy locally crafted beer from Amador Brewing, on-site wines offered by the glass, silent auction, DIY flower crowns, cigar and port bar, retro photobooth as well as sample local purveyors of sauces, olive oils, crafts, and more. 

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Amador County Fair Foundation, which helps maintain and improve the Amador County Fairgrounds not only for the annual county fair, but also for the hundreds of community and family activities that take place on the fairgrounds throughout the year.
