St. Helena, CA (PressExposure) September 09, 2009 -- Scott Harvey Winery, http://www.scottharveywines.com featuring wines from Amador County and Napa Valley, is opening a new tasting room in the center of Sutter Creek on Main St. Amador is home to approximately 34 wineries sprinkled throughout the county. More wineries are opening tasting rooms in popular tourist destinations. The Scott Harvey tasting room is the second tasting venue to operate in this historic town, known more for its mining history. Harvey's daughter, Paulette Harvey Williams, and Phyllis "Muffin" Simpson will be there to welcome the visitors and manage day to day operations.
"We've enjoyed being a part of the Sutter Creek wine scene for the last three years" said Harvey. "It does come down to location, location, location." The tasting room will move from Eureka St. to the busier 79 Main St. lined with balconied 19th century buildings. Harvey says he plans to at least double his business from the increased foot traffic. This outlet will be a great opportunity to introduce consumers to the Scott Harvey portfolio of wines. Scott's 37 years of making Amador County wines makes him one of the early leaders of the Amador appellation. He hopes this move will entice more wineries to Sutter Creek as a wine tasting destination. Tasters will not only have an opportunity to sample regional varietals such as Barbera, Zinfandel, and Syrah but also wines from Napa Valley under the "Jana" brand.
Located in a two story 100 year old home with a widow's walk from the gold rush era, the Scott Harvey Tasting Room exudes the warmth and allure of the area. Visitors are drawn by both history and small town charm.
