Great wines and nice gift shop

Been a member here for several years and have always enjoyed the wine. We visit the winery once a year and the people and tastings are great.

This was one of the two rather large and obvious new wineries to open in the Plymouth area. Personally, I prefer the older, down home type of wineries. If you like the mega-style wineries go hit Napa - I wish this one would have opened up in that area instead. For a modern winery I guess this is ok but... More

The architecture, gardens, surrounding vineyards, and expansive views are outstanding. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. These folks have the wine country lifestyle worked out perfectly. The wines themselves are good, though expensive.

this is one of the larger grounds of vineyards we visited in the Plymouth area. This tasting room has lots of space and many hosts to assist you and appear to be very knowledgeable with their wines. Would be a great place to become a member if you were a local. onsite music concerts for members of Helwig.

Had a wonderful tasting at Helwig. It was our first time there and it was very impressive. The wines are quite nice and the views are out of this world. They also have a concert venue during the summer. The gentleman at the bar was very nice and attentive. Will be back

This winery has the best views in the area. There are lots of decks, chairs, sofas to accommodate any size group. The tasting room is very nice and the wines are good. A winning combination!

Stopped in at Helwig on a friend's recommendation and it did not disappoint. We were provided great service, thank you Lewis, and sampled some delicious varietals. I'd urge you visit Helwig with lunch and enjoy their patio.

visiting Helwig Winery is a treat especially during the summer concert series. Great wines to choose from then take your bottle of wine and enjoy it sitting in the amphitheater area looking back over the Sacramento valley. Last year we got to see the Little River Band the concert was great. Billy Bones BBQ was serving up some great food.

Wow! I saw Helwig on the hill as we were driving to another winery. The facility is striking and the setting is beautiful. The wine is good but honestly not as good as a few others that are in the same area. Still, we would go back if we're ever in Amador County again.
