“Wonderful Wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

This place has become one of our favorites over the last few years. They have a great tasting room, wonderful staff and amazing wines. Get there early! This winery is popular and can fill up in the afternoon. We generally go up on Friday and have the place relatively to ourselves! This year's 2012 Xinfandel (that's not a spelling mistake) is a must try!

“Barbera's out favorite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

If you love luscious reds, you’ve found your new favorite place to visit! Borjón Winery (pronounced bor-hown’) lies at the north end of the Shenandoah Valley where the foothills start their abrupt climb. Everything about the winery and tasting room speaks to the family’s Mexican-American heritage and continuing influences on its wines. Don’t miss the tequila exhibit in a corner of the tasting room. Many of the wines’ names are derived from some of the same branding usually reserved for that spicy drink.

Best known for their Zinfandels and Barberas, Borjón treats these two favorite grapes of Amador County with care. Attention is paid to the unique characteristics of the grapes from each location, either estate grown or locally sourced. The vines are primarily head-pruned, which is said to add to the intense flavor profiles of the final wines. A favorite in our tasting group was the Zinfandel Reposado, as well as the Barbera. Other varietals are produced in small case runs. In total, annual production is about 3000 cases, though that is growing steadily.

“Very good wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

We have driven by here many times and finally stopped in. The man serving was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. More to the point, the wine was excellent, if just a little expensive. We will definitely go back.
