Reviewed By Cassfer - Palm Springs

We had visited the top rated winery for the region prior to visiting Renwood. There is no comparison, Brenda is the most delightful, informative and charming tasting consultant we have encountered. The grounds are lovely as well as the tasting room having it's own charm. Not only are the wines 5 star, they are approachable and affordable. Not only people friendly, they're pooch friendly too! Don't miss this on your trip to Amador County!

Drytown Cellars

Reviewed By SoloSightseer - Grass Valley, California

Having lived in Sonoma County for mannnny years before relocating to Nevada County, CA (another primo wine region), I've enthusiastically visited Oodles of tasting rooms, including elsewhere in CA when traveling. The winning combination I experienced yesterday at Drytown Cellars of Lovely wines plus truly friendly and relaxed hospitatlity made this a first-rate experience -- and we also lucked out re: so many other fun folks tasting alongside us too.

Their pours are generous and there isn't even a tasting fee -- but please DON'T take advantage of them. It just was an unusual combination to experience, and I did end up buying half a case of various wines. They poured their splendid Barbera, but then were out of it when I wanted to buy some : ( but was Very happy to take home a collection of other premium quality reds, including some first-rate port -- yummmmmm. They have a lot of lovely whites too, but I'm a red fan, and if you are too, Don't Miss their FAB table wine blend called Red-on-Red....it's depth of complex and well-balanced flavors left me further astonished by its bargain price, a Real find!!

Will Definitely return and can't recommend this tasting room highly enough...their generosity also extended to providing barrel samples. We enjoyed a truly memorable afternoon in their company...

Jeff Runquist Wines

Hand Selected Vineyards, Award Winning Wines Jeff travels throughout California to find just the right grapes for his vineyard designated wines. The winery produces 22 different red varietals from 9 appellations. We produce balanced wines that can be enjoyed in their youth, but will also age and become more complex with time. Our wines share a theme of fresh fruit reflective of the varietal flavors inherent in the grape.

Reviewed By Alice S - La Habra Heights

As wine tasting rooms go Jeff Runquist is a nice one to visit. The staff is warm and welcoming. You won't feel or be treated as one of the herds as can be the experience in some of the more famous wine AVAs. The tasting room itself is large but feels somewhat impersonal. However, the wine attendants do make up for it. We enjoyed the Cooper Barbera and would recommend enjoying that Italian varietal along with a few others they pour.
Cheers!!!!

Sobon Estate

Historical winery, farm museum on site.

Reviewed By happy4travel - Northern California

Our party of seven cousins thoroughly enjoyed a day at this lovely winery. The staff is welcoming and answers any question about the museum and grounds. They offer a wonderful selection of Zinfandel "Rocky Top" which we all agreed was very, very good.
There is a nice little gift shop with cookbooks and everything related to wine. The picnic grounds are welcoming, peaceful and very well maintained. Suggest you visit, have lunch and enjoy a bottle of your favorite Zinfandel!
