Chateau Sinnet

If you want to let your hair down, have a fun, memorable experience, try some unique wines, sample hot sauces, enjoy yummy cheese and crackers and cut loose - Chateau Sinnet is for you!

Spending an hour with Sonny will be an experience you will not soon forget - the man is a born entertainer and pours with a heavy hand. I strongly recommend making Chateau Sinnet the final destination on your Valley wine tasting itinerary so you're not pressed for time and are properly lubricated for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

J.C. Cellars

What a nice tasting room! I thought their wines were nice and balanced. The $5 tasting fee was certainly worth it.

I am a big proponent of urban wineries and am thrilled that JC Cellars has set up shop in Oakland.

If you visit in be sure to try Dasche's wines also!

Shenandoah Vineyards

Leon and Shirley founded Shenandoah Vineyard in 1977. They were one of the first four wineries in Amador County's now well known Shenandoah Valley appellation. From the first offering of 1,200 cases, the winery has continued to thrive, adjusting the portfolio of wines over the years. It is now producing about 25,000 cases per year.
Taste the reserve reds for $5 and get to keep the glass.

This Vineyard seems to be the last stop, we watched the sunset come down over the Vineyards as they were closing, simply beautiful.

Organic wines and passionate wine makers.

John Alan Winery

From our state of the art vineyard, we proudly offer Rhone and Bordeaux varietals and blends. Featuring Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petite Verdot, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Viognier, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir sourced from select local vineyards round out our wine portfolio.

Gia Domella Estate Wines

GiaDomella is the fulfillment of Richard, Victoria, and Joseph Passalacqua’s desire to create and produce premium wines. Consistent with the family’s long standing history associated with winemaking, fruit for these wines are sourced directly from the E Passalacqua Family Estate Vineyard which has been in the family since the late 1890’s.

Alapay Cellars

Alapay owners Scott and Rebecca Remmenga are passionate about their wines and giving each customer personalized attention within an approachable, relaxing, non-intimidating setting. Alapay does not distribute to wholesalers, restaurants or wine shops, so you will only find these special wines in their seaside wine cellar. They pride themselves on being part of the total wine production process and being "hands-on winemakers".

Girard Winery

After a day of trekking around Yountville and St Helena I wound up at Girard Winery. Girard stays open till 7, very smart move I must say as they get the overflow of folks looking for a place to continue their wine tasting adventures or a place to grab drinks before heading off to a nice dinner. It's not a showy vineyard or winery so if you are looking for the fluff you will not find it (although it is a nice tasting room). What you will find are some REALLY GREAT WINES.

Sbragia Family Vineyards

Sbragia is a good winery and nice tasting room in this valley too full of wineries.
Enoy the scenic views down the valley when you're perched up on the patio deck.
Nice people serve the wines here. I like the crisp white wines they make.
Bottle prices range from high 20's to mid $40's

Renwood Winery

Renwood is Destination Zin! Our wines start with separately fermented small lots of fruit, hand-picked from gnarled old head-trained vines dating back to the 19th century. These elderly vines produce a scant crop but the quality is excellent and exhibits the classic markers of Amador Zinfandel, dusty berry and spice. Renwood Winery produces limited production Zinfandel, Rhone and Italian varietal wines exclusively for our tasting room.
