Helwig Winery

Published June 21, 2013


The winery destination for cool concerts in Amador is going to be Helwig. Their newly renovated tasting room has an amphitheater! I hear they also plan to do wine cave tours and Friday nights they stay open late and serve wines by the glass in their outdoor pavilion.

But the wines are the real reason to go. Their sparkling pink Syrah is the refreshing start to any tasting. It’s got that tart cran, raspberry, strawberry flavor with a hint of creamy body to balance its structure. Also, make sure you try their Barbera because that’s what really thrives in Amador County. Theirs has great structure and balance.

More from my wine adventures in this region.
