Amador County: Amador County is a located
in the Sierra Nevada of the U.S. state of California.
The county seat is Jackson.
County bills itself as "The Heart of the Mother
Lode" and lies within the Gold Country. There
is a substantial wine-growing industry in the county.
Though not as well known as the Napa Valley or Sonoma
Valley wine growing regions of California, the Shenandoah
Valley was once the wine growing region
of California. With the discovery of gold, the area
quickly became a mecca for those trying to make
their fortune. In the process numerous wineries
sprouted up many of whose vineyards are still in
use by wineries today.
Amador County was created in 1854 from parts of
Calaveras and El Dorado Counties. The county is
named for Jose Maria Amador, soldier, rancher and
miner, who was born in San Francisco in 1794, the
son of Sergeant Pedro Amador, a Spanish soldier
who settled in California in 1771. In 1848, Jose
Maria Amador, with several Native Americans, established
a successful gold mining camp near the present town
of Amador City. In Spanish, the word amador means
"one who loves."
