Go for the Excellent Museum
Nov. 2019
Sobon make a nice variety of foothills wines and they are worth a taste, although there are superior wine tasting spots in Amador County. What is unique about Sobon, and what motivated me to revisit, is the outstanding winery and agricultural museum. Established in 1846, the winery was one the earliest in California. Still intact, it forms the basement area the winery. It includes antique wine fermenters and large barrels as well an assortment of antique wine making equipment. In and adjacent agricultural structure there are additional antique wine presses and antique farming equipment. The adjoining grounds have lovely historic vineyards. Definitely worth a stop.

Must be visited for Zin lovers
Jul. 2019
I've been to this place many times and strongly recommend visiting it if you are a Zin lover visiting Amador county. The wines are balanced and excellent quality. They have gotten a lot of medals and awards.
The service is very personal and attentive.
Their free tasting includes very good variety of wines but I also recommend purchasing a reserved tasting for $5. It includes three excellent wines, a glass and a visit to their sister Shenandoah Valley winery.
Don't forget to visit their two very nicely organized museums.

Winery Visit
May 2019
Excellent wine selection. We visited on a Monday, if you have a chance it's a great day to visit. Lack of crowds, and time to enjoy the wine tasting without distractions. We happened to visit at the same time as new friends we met at our Inn so we were comparing notes. This was our first time at Sobon, but it won't be our last.

Museum with wine
Mar. 2019 • Friends
As an added attraction, Sobon Estate shows off their family history farming in the Amador county 100 years ago. You see all the equipment in the farm house and all the equipment used on their land. Fascinating to see how things had to be done back then from seed cleaners to spinning wheels, hand tools to plows, stoves to pots and pans. They also have some 125 year old vines that they preserved so you can see how big they were. All to all of this some excellent wine you have a must stop on the wine circuit in Amador county. We got a case of their Syrah that was lovely and silky smooth.

Nice Place to Stop
Aug. 2018 • Couples
I recommend anyone who goes to Plymouth wine tasting to stop by here first. A winery since 1856, the museums show life and wine back then. The wines are pretty good across the board, especially their single vineyard bottlings.

Sobon is one of the farthest wineries going north on Shenandoah road, but it is still quiite close to Plymouth. The rolling hills offer great views. The winery produces a good selection of very good wines. The tasting room is also a gift shop. Tasting is free, and the staff is quite friendly and proud of their products. There is room oputdoors to enjoy good weather.

Nice find !
Apr. 2018 • Couples
We drove down from South Lake Tahoe for the weekend. Found a bottle of this wine at a store where we live. So, on the hunt for the winery. Big property, lots of parking, large tasting room, gift shop . Loved taking to the main staff member who has worked here for 28 years. Will stop in again next down we travel down the hill.

Nice tasting room
Mar. 2018 • Solo
Welcoming tasting room with a wide range of varietals and styles to taste. These are value wines that are reasonably well made but are very high in alcohol which masks any complexity in the wines.

The Sobon family were some of the first and finest out Amador County way, and they have remained a favorite of our since the early 80's. Shenandoah Vineyards never disappoints with both standards and delightful hard-to-find favs like their orange or black muscat. And now expanded at the old D'Agostini Winery (Sobon Estate). Visit both when you come.
