Discovering the best of Amador County one sip at a time!

Hey there, my name is Nicole LeFray, and I’m a food and drinks blogger who’s all about exploring the incredible offerings of Amador County. As a longtime resident of Northern California, I’ve always been drawn to the beauty, flavor and richness of the Amador region. From the stunning scenery to the delicious food and wine, there’s something truly special about this place.

And that’s why I created Tasting Amador – a blog dedicated to showcasing all the amazing things that Amador has to offer, with a special focus on wine! As a lover of all things food, drinks, and community, I felt inspired to share my experiences with others and help them discover the hidden gems of this beautiful region.

Whether you’re a wine connoisseur or just starting to explore the world of wine, there’s something for everyone in Amador. From the full-bodied Zinfandels to the crisp Sauvignon Blancs, and even the unique varietals like Verdelho, Teroldego, and Aglianico, there’s no shortage of delicious wines to sample and savor.

With Tasting Amador, I’m on a mission to review everything from local wineries and restaurants to events and activities, to help you plan the perfect visit to Amador. Whether you’re looking for a romantic weekend getaway or a fun-filled day trip with friends, I’ve got you covered.

Join me on this journey of exploration and discovery in one of California’s most beautiful and vibrant regions. Let’s raise a glass to Amador’s amazing wine and delicious food, and explore all the incredible things that this special place has to offer! Cheers to sipping and savoring with Tasting Amador!
