The grounds at Helwig Winery are so beautiful! The views in the back of the winery by the amphitheater are incredible! The wines are good, my favorite was their Barbera. On Fridays evenings, during the summer months, they have a summer concert series. They have food available for purchase. They also have numerous concerts in the amphitheater. We saw Pablo... More

We visited here on July 11, 2015. Nice variety in tasting line up. Beautiful facility and grounds. Entrance and drive to tasting room is nice! Make reserves ahead for wine caves.

We stopped in here on the way down the mountain and we are so glad we did. We had a chance to talk with Scott the winemaker and learned a ton about the property. Coming from So Cal they make great wines that are priced where you can enjoy them without cringing every day. The property is pristine, would be... More

We've loved this place, then thought... ehhhh... Well, gotta say that they continue to create some excellent wines. We tossed around the idea of cancelling our wine club membership and moving on. After the last few wine club pick ups, we ain't goin anywhere! Their Jack Rabbit Flat Zin is frekin amazing! They're Syrah is great. Sooner or later, everyone... More

Helwig is a fairly new winery in Amador County and it has quickly become our favorite. The wines are all quite good. I'd buy just about all of them. The staff we've spoken with have always been friendly and informative. And the view from this winery is amazing. Its the perfect place to have a bottle of wine and lunch... More

A must stop on the winery tour when in the foothills. Wide variety of reds and whites. Petite Syrah is terrific. The setting and views are breath taking. Service is fantastic. Seth, manager is very knowledgeable and helpful.

The setting of this winery is so pretty! Even if you aren't a wine-fan (which is hard to imagine) you should go here to enjoy the setting. They have outdoor venues during the fall, concerts with option to purchase a nice BBQ dinner. The people who work at this winery are very professional, fun and friendly. All their red wines... More

One of the Shenandoah Valley's top wineries, Helwig is also a stunning architectural example of a modern winery. The wines are also extremely good. There is a $10 tasting fee, but it's refundable with a purchase--which you will want to do. They also have stunning views from the winery and often have concerts and other musical events. A must-stop on... More

Had never visited any of the foothills wineries. At first put off by the $5 tasting fee (pretty standard now days I found out later) I fell in love with the Barbera. Wprices are reasonable for the quality of the wines. Would go back for more if I get the opportunity.
