Wine critic Mike Dunne calls Vino Noceto "the state's go-to house ... and most respected producer of sangiovese wines in California."Add Vino Noceto Winery and other attractions to your Plymouth trip itinerary using our Plymouth trip planner.
Suzy and Jim Gullett have established Vino Noceto as “California’s Sangiovese Specialist” following a pathway considerably different than other Sangiovese producers, yet similar to many small, "boutique" operations. It began when Jim, still in his teens, caught the "bug" while visiting Napa wineries with family and friends.
The "bug" grew into a "passion" over the years as the couple took regular wine-county outings and several wine-related courses. While on a family vacation in California's Gold Country, they stumbled upon the Shenandoah Valley property where their winery and home currently reside. With the September 1984 purchase of this 21-acre property and the subsequent 1987 acquisition of the neighboring 18.5 acre original homestead, the "passion" became "reality."
Vino Noceto now has over thirty acres of grapes, almost all Sangiovese, five acres of olive trees, 200 lilac bushes, and two acres of walnut trees, each contributing revenue to the farm. Buildings include their 1887 renovated ranchhouse, winery and tasting room buildings, and several rustic barns and out-buildings. From only 110 cases of Sangiovese in its inaugural 1990 vintage, the winery now produces 10,000 cases of wine annually. This includes 6,000 cases of seven different Sangioveses, 2,000 cases of a lively Moscato blend called Frivolo, plus an old vine Zinfandel from the Original Grandpere Vineyard, Barbera, and Pinot Grigio. Then there's always the four grappas when you're needing a nightcap -- but that's another story!

Stopped here while touring some wineries and definitely would recommend. Complimentary tasting and we were able to get on a tour with some other folks. The owner spent two hours showing us around the property and telling us the history of the winery. They truly have pride in what they do as well as a passion for winemaking and it shows in every way.
We just participated in a wine tasting here. The staff were well informed and extremely nice. They have a very good selection and several award winning wines. If you go you have to try the wine slush! I would absolutely recommend them!
