As the winter season sets in, Belledor Vineyards in Amador transforms into a magical winter wonderland. With an elevation ranging from 1,600 to 1,700 feet from the gate to the top of the South Zinfandel vineyard, Belledor often receives beautiful snowfall in February or March, covering the hills and the vineyards with a soft white blanket of snow.
The best part about the snowfall is that it does not affect the vines, as they are in their dormant stage during winter. The vines rest during this time, preparing themselves for the upcoming growing season. This is the perfect time for visitors to experience the beauty of the vineyards without disturbing the vines.
The snow-covered hills of Belledor provide the perfect backdrop for a peaceful and tranquil visit. The picturesque winter sunsets make for a stunning view, and the snow-packed hills create a perfect setting for a winter photo shoot. One can also enjoy the beauty of the vineyards while walking through the snow-covered vineyard rows.
The peaceful and calm pond in the vineyard also adds to the beauty of the place. It reflects the surrounding hills and vineyards, creating a breathtaking scene. Visitors can sit by the pond and enjoy the serene environment or take a walk around it.
The cozy and inviting tasting room of Belledor also provides warmth and comfort during the chilly winter days. The fireplace adds to the cozy ambiance, making it the perfect place to relax and sip on some award-winning wines. Bring a picnic or order a charcuterie board from our staff and enjoy the amazing ambiance of the snow-covered vineyards.
A snow day at Belledor Vineyards is an experience that cannot be missed. The stunning snow-packed hills, the peaceful pond, the winter sunsets, and the cozy tasting room make for a perfect winter getaway. So, pack your bags and head to Belledor Vineyards for an unforgettable magical winter wonderland experience!
