New owners

August 18, 2014 (Plymouth, CA).
Tom and Beth Jones, former stakeholders of Lava Cap Winery, have recently purchased Amador Foothill Winery in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County. In this noted Zinfandel region of the Sierra Foothills, Amador Foothill Winery was established over three decades ago. Tom’s winemaking aspirations drew him to the exceptional terroir and adventuresome winemaking spirit in the Shenandoah Valley Appellation. Both Tom and Beth are enjoying the warm welcome that they have received so far and look forward to opening the tasting room this Fall 2014. Purchasing Amador Foothill Winery near the onset of the 2014 harvest is daunting but Tom will build on the long legacy left by former winemaker-owners Katie Quinn and Ben Zeitman. The winery enjoys a panoramic Sierra view and new gravity fed crush techniques paired with old growth vineyards will allow a new leaf to develop in the Amador Foothill Winery story.

Beth will open the tasting room to visitors this Fall. Join her at the winery Friday through Monday 11 am to 5 pm for a chance to taste and chat.
