About
Hand Selected Vineyards, Award Winning Wines Jeff travels throughout California to find just the right grapes for his vineyard designated wines. The winery produces 22 different red varietals from 9 appellations. We produce balanced wines that can be enjoyed in their youth, but will also age and become more complex with time. Our wines share a theme of fresh fruit reflective of the varietal flavors inherent in the grape.

Our favorite on the trail
Aug. 2021
OK we didn't try every single winery on the Shenandoah trail, but of those we did, Runquist was our undisputed favorite. Wines are a home run. Tasting experience was (at the time of this writing) complimentary and generous. Knowledgeable staff. We bought 2 bottles to take home. Doesn't have the views that some places a mile up the road have, so you will have to make do with world class wines. I can see why they are described as having a cult like following - picked up a bottle of touring unlike anything else we tried all day. Go here - you won't regret it.

Terrific Staff to assist you at this Winery
Apr. 2021
The Jeff Runquist Winery was my favorite on this tour of wineries in Amador. It is unpretentious, and there actually is no tasting or entrance fee - which is unique in this era. I, for one, felt compelled to buys some bottles just because the atmosphere was so welcoming. The folks who run the tasting were well versed in their wines, and wonderfully helpful, the best I have seen at their trade. The tasting covers 5 or 6 different wines - some sweet, some dry. Some reds, some whites - all very well done. We tasted some Barbera's , a Petite Syrah, a Zin and a white called Verdelho - which was my favorite. It is a light tasting Sauvignon Blanc style wine which we all fell in love with. You must visit this place.

Nice laid back visit to Jeff Runquist Wines. Lovely visit, wine tasting no charge. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, small cheese plates as part of tasting. Barberas the favorite. We left happy with several bottles and thoroughly enjoyed our tasting!

Wonderful Wine at affordable prices

If you like good wine then you’ll love Runquist Wines. For a special treat try my favorite the Runquist Estate Barbera, it’s a winner. The staff working there are top flight also, so, if you’re in the Plymouth area do yourself a favor and stop by Runquist and see if you can meet Jeff and Margie

Delicious wines, friendly service
Aug. 2019
I have been a member of their wine club for years. They have always made tasty wine, this year has been exceptional, they won the winery of the year award from the California State Fair and their Sangiovese won Best of Show red at the Calaveras County Fair. The wines are made to be drunk right away, they are skilled at managing tannins. They have a section of the tasting room reserved for wine club members, that was closed for a special event when we visited, as a result the main tasting room was mobbed. The efficient staff made it work, we were at a round table away from the bar, they poured many different wines, even brought us cheese to enjoy with it. Staff are knowledgeable about their wines. Highly recommended.

Excellent wines, friendly tasting room, beautiful location

We often visit this winery, as we have been wine club members for many years. There are always several favorite bottles of award winning wines that we just can't resist. A couple of weeks ago we rented their "R House" for a weekend stay. We celebrated my parents birthdays with family and friends. The house was fantastic. We cooked gourmet meals, floated in the saltwater pool, and played games by the fire-pit at night. There are several patio/decks to enjoy the sunrise, sunset etc. while sipping on their wine. During the afternoon we walked through the vineyard to get more wine -- what a wonderful experience!

This was the last stop of our wine tasting and the wines were pretty good. Winery itself is nice but I really liked the selection of wines offered from whites to red's to ports etc. Will def return.

Dogs welcome
May 2019 • Couples
Dog lover’s review: Set in a modern rustic building right off the main road. Parking is plentiful and easy. The wine is pretty good and you get quite a few tastings of both whites and reds for free with a small cheese and bread plate included. It was definitely worth the stop. We bought their Cabernet Franc for $26. The place was very dog friendly, even to our pitbull. There were three other dogs there while we were tasting and all were welcome. The place was very popular and crowded. However, they managed the pouring pace very well.

Amazing Wines and Staff
Sep. 2018 • Couples
This winery was highly recommended so we had to stop and try it. Their wines were amazing and as busy as it was our hostes took excellent care of us. We ended up filling our pantry with a lot of their varietals. We wish we had more time to spend in Plymouth. Very cute town and the local people were very nice.
