About This Winery
The newest winery and tasting room in Amador County is the countrified Bantam Cellars, located right along Shenandoah Road in a recently built tin-roofed barn. They currently make four estate-grown wines, with a bent toward Italian-style reds.
The tasting room is a replica of a 100-year-old Plymouth barn found just down the road. Inside is a spacious room paneled with Douglas-fir and cedar. The tasting island is made of rich walnut wood, and a crystal chandelier hangs overhead.
According to co-owner Jonna Cobb, “It is my goal to bring Amador back to its wine roots with Bantam Cellars — good country living, chickens in the yard, good friends, good food, fabulous wine and great times with lots of relaxed and friendly hospitality.” They certainly have a good time here making their “Coop D’Ville” blend, Primitivo, Zinfandel and Viognier wines.
Winemaker and co-owner Garth Cobb brings with him experience from Karly Winery, where he and his family produce Rhone varietals along with Amador Zinfandel. Informal tours are available.↑ Less
