Hand Selected Vineyards, Award Winning Wines Jeff travels throughout California to find just the right grapes for his vineyard designated wines. The winery produces 22 different red varietals from 9 appellations. We produce balanced wines that can be enjoyed in their youth, but will also age and become more complex with time. Our wines share a theme of fresh fruit reflective of the varietal flavors inherent in the grape.

Jeff Runquist is the best winemaker in the area. He does not grow his own so he can use the grapes he wants. Their Cab Fanc is very good.

Every person I spoke to about Plymouth wineries recommended Runquist. I normally avoid wineries located right on the highway because many of them rely upon easy tourist traffic rather than quality wine, but Runquist is not one of those places. The wine maker sources his...More

Wines are always top notch. I have never tried a Jeff Runquist wine that wasn't good. Love it and highly recommend it. The Runquist Cooper Barbera is my all-time favorite.

Good wines, nice pours & accommodating staff. Knowledgeable about the grapes & the source. Relaxing, not hurried . Open room with nice patio and lots of parking.

Some of the best wines around...and great value too. The weekend member barbecue was such a great deal. Great food--lamb, ribeye, brisket, and salmon. Club membership is definitely the way to go?
