Last August, Renwood was acquired by an international investment group that owns five wineries in Argentina and Uruguay and also grows fresh fruits and nuts and makes cheese, olive oil and honey. The investors are true Ren-aissance men, which is no doubt why they chose to launch their first U.S. wine venture in Amador.
Our new owners have committed sizable resources to the upgrading of every facet of Renwood’s operations. We’ve been busy making a bevy of delicious new wines, redesigning our wine labels and completely renovating our tasting room, which is scheduled to reopen in late August. (Meanwhile, we’re open for business in a temporary tasting room at the winery.)
We think you’ll love the new tasting room. It’s been completely redesigned to feature several outdoor tasting areas (complete with fire pits), a private fireside tasting room, and a new, state-of-the-art tasting bar. Walnut facades, comfortable couches, leather club chairs and low wooden tables give the space the feel of a chic, yet casual resort club lounge, with a hostess and concierge on hand to cater to your every need.
When you visit, you’ll be able to choose from a full menu of tour and tasting options, including seated ‘flight’ tastings of Renwood’s famous zinfandels. You will also have an opportunity to sample and purchase South American olive oils and honey, along with locally made foodstuffs.
There will be great food, too. We’ve designed menus of pre-packaged, seasonally themed salads, sandwiches and other dishes you and your friends can purchase to enjoy with your tasting of Renwood wines. There’s much more to tell you about all the great new improvements at Renwood, so keep checking this blog for our latest Renditions.
