The beautiful and historic Shenandoah Valley of Amador County is one of the oldest non-Spanish farming communities in California. The easy gold found early during the Gold Rush soon was exhausted and the miners realized that their fortune would more likely be made in a more traditional manner – farming. Grapes were planted as early as the 1850s and the valley’s reputation for “liquid gold” has been growing since.
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.
When we purchased the Property in 1992, there was an operating winery producing 1,000 cases of wine with seven acres of grapes. Today, production has increased to 3,000 cases and the place has expanded to 30 acres, including 10 acres of lawns, gardens and picnic grounds surrounding a tranquil pond.
