Young's is one of the first vineyards you come to after turning onto Shenandoah Road in Plymouth. Over the years we have become an essential stop for a growing group of enthusiastic fans of our celebrated Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese and Barbera. Young’s also offers a superb Roussanne. “Young’s Barbera is best in class,” says Rocklin landscape designer Scott Jardine. “All their wines are top drawer – they rival anything out of the Napa Valley.” Scott and several of his friends have been making annual jaunts to Shenandoah Valley to buy their favorite Young’s wine by the case.

Today, production has increased to 6,000 cases and the place has expanded to 30 acres, including 10 acres of lawns, gardens and picnic grounds surrounding a tranquil pond.

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More

  • Is it me, or are oaky chards out of fashion? Nowadays most every producer I encounter boasts about their stainless steel tanks. All I want to experience with my Chardonnay is toast with a big ol' pad of melted butter on top. Can anyone recommend some excellent oaky chard producers? Thanks!  Read More

  • The Veneto is home to some of the most profound red wines of italy. Of course we all know these wines, Amarone in particular but to a lesser extent Valpolicella and the very popular if less to my taste valpolicella Ripasso, but the veneto is also home to two fabulous indigenous white wines, as well as a slew of other wines that are easily crafte...

  • Maybe.The reason is that there's a heirarchy in Italy. Langhe is a DOC, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata. That means the grape varieties and winemaking are controlled.But Barolo and Barbaresco are DOCG, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, which is the highest classification in Italy. It means that not only are things cont... Read More
