Red Giraffes in Wine Country

Karmere Vineyards and Winery is one of the premier visits in the Plymouth, California area.  Looking for places we could visit with minimal to no public contact we decided to give Plymouth a go.  We were met on the Karmere driveway with unusual red giraffes peaking through the vines.  (They weren’t wearing masks or social distancing but I suppose they get a pass.) It was a must to trek through the dirt in 100+ degree weather, because opportunities like this don’t come along every day.

The Plymouth area, in Amador County, is another Gold Country gem located in the Northern California Gold Country area.  Albeit this particular area has changed a lot over the years.  This once cattle and agriculture area is now primarily vineyards and businesses which support the those vineyards.  It is a much shorter drive from the Sacramento area than to our precious Napa and is less frequented which = less traffic!

Stay tuned for an accidental visit to the Amador Flower Farm which is like Christmas Day for these two day tripping photographers.

Cheers!

  1. Hitting the Gold Country wineries seems like an excellent activity in the age of Covid-19. In hundred degree weather… well it is in the foothills. Hopefully you bought a few bottles to take home. I can’t think of any visit I’ve ever made to the wineries there that hasn’t scored at least four! 🙂 As for giraffes, we bought one in Jackson that lives in our sunroom in Oregon! –Curt
