Our Corner of Wine Country
Sutter Creek is ideally located in the center of the wine region in the Sierra Foothills. With multiple wineries and unique tasting rooms nearby, Amador County is a wine lover’s paradise. Reserve our convenient Complimentary Shuttle Service for a day full of wine tasting and then come home to the comfort of Hotel Sutter.
Amador County is home to a total of 42 wineries, some of which are located just minutes from historic downtown Sutter Creek. Visit the Sierra Ridge Winery and sample their collection of award-winning wines while taking in the beautiful scenery. Travel less than a mile down the road and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Northern Italy when you visit Avio Vineyards and Carriage House. Venture a few miles down historic Highway 49 to Terra d' Oro and you won’t be disappointed. As the first winery in Amador County to produce wine since the end of Prohibition, you can taste over 150 years of history in the making.
Have a group and want to create a wine tasting experience together? Book rooms in our Hotel and schedule Hotel Sutter’s 21 person tour bus to take you to the local wineries. Enjoy the wines, and leave the driving to our professional driver.

Something for Beer Lovers, Too
Sutter Creek’s beer scene is still up and coming, with breweries starting to pop up in nearby cities around Amador County. Venture over to the neighboring city of Plymouth and enjoy the unique tastes of Amador Brewing Company. Visit their tasting room off Highway 49—open Friday-Sunday only—and try a flight of their delicious craft brews, like the Night Hike porter or a German Altbier. Or if you’d rather stay close to home, just walk 2 minutes from Hotel Sutter on Main Street and visit Sutter Creek Provisions, where they always have a variety of local beers on tap from breweries around Northern California, including Amador Brewing Company.
