Modern Day Sutter Creek

A charming balance of old and new, today’s Sutter Creek maintains its Gold Rush facade while catering to the wants and needs of visitors from around the world. Shop, dine, slumber, stroll, wine taste, and enjoy the atmosphere of Sutter Creek in California’s Amador County.

Located about 45 miles southeast of Sacramento. Sutter Creek is ideally situated in the heart of the Sierra Foothill Wine Country and is Amador County’s most walkable town with Bed and Breakfast Inns, restaurants, wine tasting rooms and shops on beautiful Main Street.

Sutter Creek is the perfect hub to explore the Sierra Foothill Wine regions including Amador’s own Shenandoah Valley, El Dorado County’s Fairplay region and Calaveras County’s wine region. Amador County’s Shenandoah Valley has become a thriving and popular wine growing region of California and is often quoted as being “like Napa and Sonoma were thirty five years ago.“

Plan to visit Sutter Creek, the Jewel of the Motherlode, and one of California's finest and friendliest small towns.
