Superior tours of the Motherlode and Wine Country

Gold Country Wine Tours has unfortunately closed its business. It was the best tour (possibly the only) in the California Foothills and the Amador Wine Country.

This was our first time to Amador County, so we had no idea where to go, and we only had one day, so I decided to book a tour with Gold Country Wine Tours. Turned out to be a great decision. We were the only couple booked for our Monday tour. Cathy (owner/driver/tour guide/etc.) is THE BEST. We had a... More

My wife and I reserved this tour on a Monday for the following day and Cathy accommodated us by taking us around by ourselves in her own car! It was like a personal VIP experience. We visited a number of great wineries, had a great picnic lunch at one of them. Cathy described the history of the area - the... More

My fiancé and I joined up with some of our friends, her parents, my aunt and uncle for a full day excursion in Gold Country Wine Tours' comfortable bus. The tour included stops at four local wineries (they would have taken us to a fifth, but we were all exhausted by the day's end). Each winery had it's own unique... More

Used Gold Country Wine Tours for a trip to Sutter Creek in December. We had a group of 8 so we chartered the tour bus. We have been to Amador many times, and knew where we wanted to go. Cathy was very helpful in planning and contacting the wineries for appointments. Found a new one too on her recommendation. The... More

Just returned from great road trip to northern California. We walked through redwood forests, and drove along some very scenic and historic highways in the heart of gold country. The towns of Sutter Creek, Placerville, Colombia, Auburn, Murpheys, etc, are around 100 years old and don't appear to have changed much. Napa was nice but we prefer the area and... More

I booked this tour for Father's Day weekend for myself and two friends from the San Francisco Bay area. I had never heard of Gold Country Wine Tours before and was only barely familiar with the wines of the Shenandoah; but they were local and seemed a good choice. They turned out to be much better than just a good... More
