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.

Helwig has some really great wine. They have a very nice tasting room that accommodates a lot of visitors. And they have very knowledgeable staff. However, these three rather good items don't meld together perfectly. Our experience there felt a little corporate as opposed to wineries like Dillian that feel friendly and homey. Don't get us wrong, Helwig is a... More

We're wine club members here. Joined last year because we really liked what we tasted then. The venue is amazing, new with killer views. The amphitheater would be great to see one of the concerts that they have during the summer months. The staff is generally very nice. The tasting room is always busy. They've getting close to releasing wines... More

We had been in Lodi and Clarksburg, CA for three days visiting wineries and tasting wines. We were en route to Lake Tahoe for a destination wedding. When staff at two different Lodi wineries learned of our destination, they recommended we stop in Amador County, and specifically recommended Helwig Wineries. We had never heard of Amador County or California's "Shenandoah... More

mmmm....another iced wine that I really enjoyed. While the wines were really very good, the view was absolutely beautiful. Looking down on rows of vines, birds soaring overhead on the warm air currents, the breeze cooling you while the sun keeps you on just this side of warm. A delightful place to visit.

We had a wonderful visit to Helwig Winery. They are a new winery; still young and growing. We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour of the winery and caves with Cory. Tour arranged through Foxes Inn in Sutter Creek as the winery owners own the B & B as well...a perk to staying. Jack was very knowledgeable about their wines and... More
