Surrounded by some of America’s oldest Zinfandel vineyards, Renwood Winery is located in the picturesque California foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Renwood produces world-class award winning wines from Amador County and the Sierra Foothills. Boston native Robert Smerling founded Renwood in 1993. Mr. Smerling fell in love with Amador County’s rich history and magnificent vineyards. A plan was set in place to build one of America’s premier Zinfandel wineries. Mr. Smerling brought together a group of professional investors who helped him found the company. Wine production has grown from 2,500 cases in 1993 to over 100,000 cases today. The critics all agree Renwood produces consistently exceptional wines covering the spectrum from big, bold, jammy Zins to wonderfully balanced Syrahs and Barberas. Today we produce over 18 different wines, including 2 Proprietary wines, 3 Vineyard Designated wines, 6 Amador County wines, 4 Red Label wines and 3 Dessert wines. With the introduction of our Red Read more »

  • Viridian Estate Grown Vin Frosset Pinot Gris 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Oh ya! and OMG. I haven't tasted a great frost wine like this in years since Santino closed their door. I picked this up out of a bargin basket while visiting Salem. The price tricked me, thought it was a risk. I should've taken the whole basketful. Like drinking liquid grape jelly. Fabulous mouthfeel. It says tangerine & orange, but all ... Read More

  • Santino Wines Eco Petite Sirah Lodi 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This was not typical petite sirah from Lodi. I opened it to have with lamb, as I like the fat-peeling tannins of PS with that meat. This was, in spite of its age (5 years), more fruity, with good acidity. Reminded me a little of tempranillo, oddly. I'll finish it later, but we opened another PS with those bold tannins and had that with our m... Read More

  • Old Vines Zinfandel 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Maybe because it was a 375ml it was too old, or it was kept too warm. Whatever the case, tart, raisiny and over. Renwood generally produces good zins, but be careful. The 750s might still be OK, but this wasn't a good bottle. Read More
