Schug Carneros Estate goes to great lengths to make a quality Pinot Noir, and their efforts are your reward. The winery tour & visit has never been the focus of the estate, but now that the heirs of the estate have worked out their differences, you'll see an improvement in that part of the business. What you'll find today is... More

Our last vineyard stop, we were more interested in their self-guided tour through the vineyards, but be prepared for extreme heat and sunshine! The bartender was super fun; there was no push for buying anything (unlike most other vineyards). We got to try a late harvest chardonnay that was delightful!

It was the smallest of the tasting rooms we visited on a busy Saturday, but very enjoyable because of that. We were able to take our time and the person pouring for us that day let us taste a few things not on their normal tasting menu which I loved. They did have a $10 tasting fee which we didn't...

This was a must visit for me because I'm a big fan of their Pinot Noir. The tasting room was small for the 10 of us but we went early enough and we were the only ones in it. Not sure anyone else would be able to fit. They did tell us that they were in the process of building... More

We found this place only by recommendation. It's a cute little winery hidden up the mountain a bit and off the beaten path. I highly recommend you stop in. Great Pinot niors and Chardonnay!

This is a nice little winery off the main road. The wines are not for sweet wine lovers but the views are incredible and the staff was wonderful and super friendly. The staff made this such a fun experience. We also got complementary tasting coupons from the visitor center. Tastings are usually $10 which is much cheaper than most other... More

I was recently on a business trip and had some time to kill. I went to Shug having tasted their wines at a restaurant but had not been to winery. They are located way off the road at the intersection of 121/12/116. Coming from SF turn left at intersection. Great wines, great prices and a GREAT tasting team. My biggest... More

We enjoyed the self-walking tour of this vineyard. They provided us with information and we signed a disclaimer and then we went off to explore. We didn't buy anything but that wasn't a problem and there was certainly no pressure to do so. It was nice to read a little information on the grapes and walk through the vines. The... More
