Wines, like a comfortable T-shirt or a hard candy left to ripen under the couch, only get better with age. Taste the passing of time with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a library tasting for two (a $20 value), a bottle of 2007 Scott Harvey Mountain Selection zinfandel (a $20 value) and 20 percent off additional wine at Scott Harvey Wines, located in Sutter Creek (a $40 total value).
A student of enology at Weinbau Schule in Neustadt, Germany, Scott Harvey has been making wines in Amador County for 35 years, welcoming visitors to its Sutter Creek Tasting Room for a tasting of its expertly aged library wines. Made exclusively with Amador County grapes, the Scott Harvey Wines line includes Old Vine zinfandel, syrah, barbera, and port wine. Vinophiles can also purplify their tongues with Scott’s California blends: One Last Kiss, which treats palates to the flavors of blackberries and cloves, and InZinerator, which combines zinfandel, syrah, and port. Following the tasting, visitors receive one bottle of 2007 Mountain Selection zinfandel, as well as 20 percent off additional on-site wine purchases and overzealous high-fives.
Scott Harvey Wines
In high school, Scott Harvey—an exchange student from California living in the Rheinland-Pfalz region of Germany—discovered a new passion: winemaking. The interest soon led him back to Germany to serve as an apprentice, and at the tender age of 23, Scott took over as head winemaker for a vineyard back home. After working at several Californian wineries honing and perfecting his skills, the vintner wunderkind began to craft his own vintages alongside his wife, Jana, also a wine-industry vet. Since 2004, the couple has expanded its portfolio into three collections of namesake wines: Scott Harvey, reflecting the fertile terroir of Amador County; Jana, bottled amid Napa Valley's grape-juice rivers; and InZINerator and One Last Kiss, blends of red and white varietals, respectively.
