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

Stopped by at Helwig based on recommendation from staff at Andis, more for the architecture than the wine. Went on a Friday afternoon (nice because no crowds) I liked the wines and they look like they have some great events in the patio area and amphitheater.

I have been tasting in the area for about 10 years now. I visited Helwig for the first time yesterday and it was some of the worst wine I have ever tasted. I did enjoy listening to the used car salesman/tasting room staff describe there wines though. Most of them are blends which is typically thought of as a copout... More

I stopped by the Helwig winery for the popular Big Crush weekend. I went into their attractive tasting room with nice views of the area but was told to go outside to a special Big Crush reception area. I went as directed another 100 feet and was directed to a separate area outside and several hundred feet below the tasting... More

Great tasting room! Awesome vistas! A wine cave not to be missed. A great selection of really tasty wine. Concerts throughout the summer and a great place to have a party or a wedding. One was being set up the day we visited and was and unbelievable venue with a outdoor chapel and covered dining area. The Helwig's have done... More
