I recommend anyone who goes to Plymouth wine tasting to stop by here first. A winery since 1856, the museums show life and wine back then. The wines are pretty good across the board, especially their single vineyard bottlings.

Welcoming tasting room with a wide range of varietals and styles to taste. These are value wines that are reasonably well made but are very high in alcohol which masks any complexity in the wines.

The Sobon family were some of the first and finest out Amador County way, and they have remained a favorite of our since the early 80's. Shenandoah Vineyards never disappoints with both standards and delightful hard-to-find favs like their orange or black muscat. And now...More
