Highway 49--Gold Rush Country: Plymouth, Shenandoah Vineyards

Shenandoah Vineyards 12300 Steiner Rd., (209) 245-4455. Tasting daily 10-5. The entry to this winery passes through gates and continues up a long drive to the knotty pine-walled tasting room. The winery uses sustainably farmed estate grapes to craft a range of varietals that are produced and bottled on site. Try a jammy Vinters Selection Zinfandel, or The Big Z—a ReZerve® Paul’s Vineyard Zinfandel from vines planted in 1928, a unique and spicy Zingiovese®, or an exquisite and rare sweet Black Muscat (buy it here, because it is difficult to find elsewhere). An informal art exhibit adjacent to the tasting room displays and sells contemporary art and ceramics.
