Tobin James Cellars

Tobin James is not your traditional estate with vineyards, but definitely a fun winery to visit and often the place to stop by many that are escaping the heat of the Central Valley. If you are even slightly intemidated about not knowing enough about your wines, this come here, they will put you at ease!  The staff really wants to talk about things other than tannins, oak, and other terms so common in wine articles.  If you are a serious about your wine, Jobin James, Lance and Claire Silver the owners are completely passionate about the wines they make. But if you are a grape-nut like me who would like to have fun while tasting great wines without being judged by condescending staff members - Tobin James Cellars.  - this is the place to be!*

Hours:

Daily - 10:00AM to 6:00PM

Naggiar Vineyards & Winery

There is a style consistent here at Naggiar Vineyards & Winery from wine to wine. This tells me that they have a winemaker who knows what he is doing. There is no luck here these people have an approach to winemaking that is sustainable. The tasting room is extremely inviting and very well done. The views are more Napa like than Foothill. The odd thing is that the winery is in the middle of no where. In Grass Valley but the drive is lovely and only 20 min from Auburn.

Mt. Vernon Winery

Mt. Vernon Winery is one of the most unique wineries you will find in the Sierra foothills. Founders Jim & Lynda Taylor and winemaker Ryan Taylor own the largest and most award winning winery in Placer County with a variety of hand-crafted wines for you to enjoy! The tasting room is a beautifully restored old 1950s milk house with elegant gardens that over look the lush vineyards.

Bella Piazza Winery

The wines produced from the vineyards in the Shenandoah Valley, home to some of the oldest vines in California and are renowned for their intense fruit and deep color. Winemakers, George Bursick and Susan Farrington have added their extensive experience and discerning palates to create wines of intensity with elegance. Starting with rich, mature fruit, he creates Bella Piazza Winery wines in a style that displays both richness and balance.

Robert Renzoni Vineyards & Winery

Robert Renzoni Vineyards & Winery
If you haven't checked out this winery yet you are missing out. Sure this place doesn't have large gardens or a picturesque picnic area... but this place is amazing where it counts... the wine.

I came here on a wine tour and was lucky to meet Robert Renzoni himself. He was super friendly and passionate about his wine. He also educated our entire group about his wine which seemed to be really appreciated by the group because most of our tour were first timers.

The tasting room is a large warehouse type building, nothing fancy. However, almost everythingI tasted here was delicious. The service was great because they had plenty people pouring and we did not have to wait long to get more tastes. As far as the wine, I highly recommend the Sangiovese, the Old Vine Zin, and the port.

Di Vittorio Winery

A boutique winery that is located in the Sierra Foothills that uses tradititonal proceww that the diVittorio family has used since their immigrated to America in 1904.
A small on-site still is used to produce the distillate that is the brandy composing the port wines and soon to come California Calvados.
The wines and brandy are aged in oak barrels in the stable environment of a cave for at least 2 years before bottling.

Nine Gables Vineyard

Nine Gables Vineyard and Winery is located on what was once the Old Pieroni Ranch. Antonio & Ester Pieroni immigrated to America in April, 1905 and settled in Amador County. In 1911, Mr. Pieroni and his partners Emilio D'Agostini and Guisepe Guiltieri purchased property which became the D'Agostini Winery. Mr. Pieroni sold his share of the D'Agostini property and subsequently purchased the 120 acre ranch property in the Shenandoah Valley.

Keyways Vineyard & Winery

First stop on our wine tasting fun! Beautiful winery as soon as you pull up onto the gravel parking lot.... So many trees, flower bushes, and on the walkway, vintage wine making machines, so cool! We walked right up to the counter, tasting for two! $15 each and you get to keep the glass!

The staff was really sweet, enjoyed a good conversation, and she gave us a 2 for 1 card for the next winery on our list!

Meyer Family Cellars

Matt Meyer
From an early age, Matt's goal was to be a winegrower like his father. As he grew up, he spent much of his time in the vineyard and cellar at Silver Oak. The passion he developed for wine led him to the University of California, Davis, where he was awarded a Masters in Viticulture in 2002.
Karen Meyer
Karen was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia. After a harvest in Margaret River, she was hooked on wine. She completed a degree in enology at Charles Stuart University, then spent the next few years working harvests around the world. In 1999 Matt and Karen met in Oregon while working the crush at Argyle Winery in the Willamette Valley. The wines produced at Meyer Family Cellars are as diverse as the vineyards in which they are grown.
