Stop here for Sangiovese.
Sep. 2021
A very stop - especially if you like Sangiovese which they specialize in. Our server was both friendly and knew his wines.

Excellent Sangiovese
Jun. 2021
By far and away this was the best tour we have had of a winery. Jim Gullett the owner took us on a very personal tour of the vineyards and discussed the philosophy of Sangiovese as a excellent grape varietal for California. The wines we sampled from a Rosato to Sangiovese were all excellent. I was particularly exited by the Aglianico. The have excellent outdoor facilities, and are child friendly, with games for children on the side. We look forward to enjoying many returns.

For a real wine tasting experience, go to Vino Noceto
Aug. 2019
Vino Noceto probably should be rated 5 stars but I rate 4 stars as my top!! If you go to just one winery in the Shenandoah Valley wine district (a must for wine tasting and for good reds of all types!), this is the one! Reason one: the red wines, as others have written of the Sangiovese, are great. Reason two: tastings are complimentary (truly!!), generous, interactive, intimate and fun. Reason three: the staff make sure you get to taste what interests you and are very informative about wine as well as Shenandoah Valley offerings. And you cannot pass up trying a Frivolo slush (from a sweet white wine), a delight on a hot Amador County day. Their wine club gives you lots of options. The tasting room has a beautiful collection of children's books (go figure!). Check it out. On a nice day, you can sit outside underneath the umbrellas, play bocci ball, picnic and drink one of those great bottles of wine that you purchased!

Very, very good Sangiovese
Apr. 2019 • Couples
We make an effort to veer from our usual wineries when visiting Amador County. Since there are more than 40 of them, it can take awhile! We stopped into Vino Noceto on Saturday to a very friendly staff associate. Very knowledgeable about the product and the region in general.
The tasting menu is broken into 3 parts. Red flight, white flight and a mixture of both. Most everything was spot-on excellent with a few standouts. The Sangiovese, especially the 2015 Riserva. The other is a really sweet Frivolo. It's used during the summertime as a base for slushies! It's very good all on it's own.
This is a good one!

This is a fun winery in the heart of Amador. Fun Italian varietals, and a relaxing tasting environment. Highly recommend!

Local winery does good

To me Vino Noceto sums up what a winery visit experience should be like:

* Friendly, knowledgeable, outgoing staff who clearly are passionate about the wines
* An approachable no-attitude atmosphere that encourages quaffing, not to mention tasting the wine is complimentary (unlike across the road which charges $10)
* Decent variety - more reds than whites this time around
* Cheerful ambiance with plenty of seating; picnics encouraged

As others have noted, the Frivolo, as its name suggests is a light, easily drinkable white that even comes in a can. I was hesitant, nay perhaps even a bit skeptical, that something out of a can could be drinkable. A bit fruity but not overly cloyingly so, I would pair it with Thai -- or even a turkey sandwich. I was converted: wine out of a can can be good (no pun intended). These little guys would be easy to take on a hike, picnic or even a movie ha ha.

Maybe I hadn't been drinking the right kind, but sangiovese was never a favorite of mine. Kind of like petit verdot (*gasp*) but when I tried the estate 2015 Sangiovese, I was converted. Well-balanced and not too tannin-y, it's meant to be drunk now. Like I wanted to open the bottle once I got home. Reasonably priced at under $20, the grapes are sourced locally and could pair up with almost anything.

So there you have it. Converted to drinking wine out of cans and sangiovese. I recommend stopping by!

Still a favorite, and likely to remain so
May 2018 • Couples
My wife and I enjoy going to wineries up in Amador County, as well as other underappreciated wine-producing areas in California. While I understand and endorse the imposition of tasting fees as a way to discourage those who exploit the generosity of wineries and are going tasting to get drunk, the situation in Napa, and increasingly in Sonoma is ridiculous. When you are charged $50 for a tasting fee, things are out of hand. It is nice to go to an area such as Amador County where tasting fees are still modest, and are often waived if you buy a bottle. We almost always buy a bottle, unless we think every single bottle we tried was awful.

We had visited Vino Noceto several years ago during an extended stay in the Plymouth area. We try to limit ourselves to two wineries a day so that we can actually taste the last of the wines we are drinking at the second winery of the day. As a result, of this rather throttled sampling, it can take a long time for us to get back to a winery, even one like Vino Noceto that we are very fond of. We finally made it back.

During this visit, we began with the standard wines that had been selected for tasting. As we talked about having lived in Italy, and our fondness for Sangiovese, additional, more select wines became part of our tasting. It was particularly nice to try the Sangiovese wines that came from clippings that originated in Italy, from vines of the very leading producers of Sangiovese. We ended up purchasing half a case of wine, and had a very lovely visit. We were particularly fond of the Rosato di Sangiovese, and also two of the higher-end Sangioveses, the Marmellata (which had been unavailable during our prior visit) and another that was called Misto. When we lived in Emilia-Romagna, Sangiovese was widely grown, and outstanding examples were available at very reasonable prices. These wines are not imported. Instead, if you want a 100% Sangiovese, one way of achieving this is to buy a Brunello. Brunellos from the better-known wineries, such as those from which the aforementioned clippings were obtained, are quite pricey. You will pay a pretty penny for these wines. Comparatively, the offerings from Vino Noceto are a bargain. Although some of my favorite local wine shops do carry some Vino Noceto wines, you are unlikely to see the high-end versions of their Sangiovese. Unfortunately it is unusual to find the wines on restaurant wine lists here in the SF Bay area. Even more incentive to buy while you are visiting the tasting room. I’m sure we will return for another visit in the future. I encourage you to give them a try.

Lovely winery, very good wines
Apr. 2018 • Friends
Located on Shenandoah road, Northeast of Plymouth, this is one of the earlier wineries one reaches after turning North. The Tasing room is spacious, comfortable and the staff, proud of the products they offer. In addition to a very pleasant Pinot Grigio and Moscato (Frivolo), Noceto focuses on reds, especially Sangiovese. The 2014 reserve and the AX-1 are excellent, and so is their Zinfandel. However, the pleasant surprise was the Barbera, a very competitive, well-balanced, lovely red,

Vino Noceto specializes in Sangiovese and has a few other offerings. The wine is consistently among the best in the area, or anywhere else. We capitalized on their Black Friday deals.
