Renwood Winery Inc. / Santino Description

From its tile-roofed facility along picturesque Steiner Road, Renwood Winery produces copious amounts of Amador County wines including California, Rhone, and Italian varietals, sweet Muscats, vintage ports, and a very unusual Amador Ice Zinfandel.

The winery specializes in Zinfandel, making six different proprietary and vineyard-designated versions, including a semi-sweet White Zinfandel. They use old-world, handcrafted winemaking techniques - including the use of a traditional basket press - to produce their fruit-forward, bold Italian and Rhone-style wines. Their large vineyard holdings supply 60 to 70 percent of their grapes; the rest are purchased from local growers.

The tasting room and gift shop are laid out for easy browsing while you sample your wine. There is a large amount of merchandise for sale, including photographs, glassware, logo clothing, pottery, cigars, and a fully stocked deli case. Picnic tables can be found outside.

Overall Impressions
Great Zin's, but try the Orange Muscat
WineHound, Arroyo Grande
A beautiful location and they are open a bit later than most tasting rooms. The Orange Muscat was a great end to the tasting menu, not sickly sweet at all, in fact a bit tangy, and at 10% alcohol everyone in our group loved it!

Try the vintage Ports
Luke, San Francisco
While the Renwood winery does have an amazing selection of Zinfendels, I am always drawn to a bottle of Port. Here at Renwood I found an amazing bottle of vintage Port, and left with a case. The scenery is beautiful and a lot to take in, although sitting back with a glass of wine is the most relaxing aspect and I truly enjoyed my time here at Renwood.
