The winery is known for Zinfadel and Italian varietal wines which are grown in the Shenandoah Valley -- situated in Amador County -- near the small village of Plymouth (population 1000!). We don't do pairings very often, but what a treat it was for us to have a wine and cheese pairing, followed by a port and chocolate pairing! It... More

I have always been a fan of Renwood so was excited to finally go here. They did not disappoint. there was not a bad wine on the list. I was also pleasantly surprised by their tempranillo. The wine pourer was very nice and talked with us for the whole tasting which made it a great experience. The prices were more... More

We have been wine club members at Renwood for many years. When the new owners took over a couple of years ago and renovated the facility and changed up the wine selection--I thought--Oh no, we are going to priced out of one of favorite wineries in Amador. My worries were completely unfounded. The wines are a little pricier than they... More

We had a wine tasting at Renwood. Erin met us at the door and was very good. She is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the winery. Their area outside is perfect for tasting wine and enjoying the day. We liked the Zins and a Syrah. This winery is trying to make a come back and I hope they succeed.

The Shenandoah Valley, in the Sierra foothills of Amador County, has long been known for its Zinfandel. And Renwood has some of the best Zinfandels around. You can taste different Zinfandels made in different styles with grapes from different vineyards. The winery is new and well designed and the pouring staff is pleasant and knowledgable. There is a tasting fee,... More

The grounds are modern and welcoming. Certainly we could have stayed there for hours -- had we no other wineries to visit. You could buy a cheese, chocolate plate and enjoy your wine on the terrace. They do charge for you to taste the wine $5; however, they do take that $ off when you buy a bottle. We bought... More

There is so much excellent wine in Amador. Don't waste your time weeding your way through the lines at Renwood. Wine is nowhere near as tasty as elsewhere.

Our very first stop on a wine country tour and a great place to start. Having never really been much into wine, this was a great place to get my feet wet. We arrived a bit early but Stephen came out to greet us and really took care of us. I found I am a fan of iced wines and... More

Perhaps I was wined out...but I was not a fan. They were ok. Nice atmosphere, but I have visited nicer; however, the rich and famous like this place. Nice wine pairing appetizer selections.
