What's a "Spring Fling?" Its not a Spring romance or tryst; its not jumping around in a pasture filled with Spring grasses, It's not even flinging your old springs into the trash. The "Spring Fling" takes place in Amador Wine Country with nine participating wineries welcoming the public from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday April 26, 2014.
The event is organized with a passport bonus that encourages visitors to gets stamps from five of the nine wineries in order to enter a drawing to win two tickets to the Barbera Festival on June 14, 2014 which is sold out every year due to its popularity. There is no charge to join in the Spring Fling and most wineries will be offering event day discounts on wine purchases.
"Lite bites" will also be made available and include BellaGrace's delicious vegetarian black bean and corn salad paired with their Spring release wines. BellaGrace also has 30 souvenir glasses available for purchase for those who come early and take advantage of the offer. The Steiner wineries provide glasses for tasting but they are not take-home souvenirs.

The Steiner Road Spring Fling has been highly favored by wine enthusiasts and lovers of Amador County. The event is complimentary and offers visitors a chances to experience what the Steiner wineries are best known for. Visitors are encouraged to explore their senses and test the flavor of the wine before and after a bite of food to discover how food as well as mood can change your experience of the wine. The idea is to try something new and challenge your perceptions of what you like and experience in various wines. Perhaps yesterday you favored Barbera but today you might take a sudden liking to Zin or Merlot or even a Riesling.
The Steiner Road Spring Fling event truly graciously welcomes visitors. Friendly staff are always at hand and have been repeatedly noted for happily sharing their love and knowledge of the wine and wine making processes. The event is also an opportunity to enjoy the Amador personalities, have a fun day with friends, learn something new about wine and the history of Amador County wines. Love and joy for what you do transmits to a positive atmosphere. Even if you are a designated driver, you can enjoy the people, information, views, little bites, and the friends you bring.
