Just another awesome scenic view to be had in Amador County, California thanks to the Avio Vineyards on Ridge Road. Amador County prospered first from gold and now zinfandel. Up on these shoulders of the Sierra Nevadas, the Zinfandel grape rules! Although there is still gold as well as active gold mines, wineries and history are the main draw in this region of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Most wineries are found between 250 and 2500 feet above sea level, but there are parts of Amador county that reach 9000 ft.
