We picked this winery as we had their wine in Rio Cafe, Sacramento. The staff stopped what they were doing to chat with us, about wine and travels. The wine was excellent and reasonably priced, we ended up buying of course!

After sampling the Zinfandel Old Vines at Total Wines, I decided to visit this winery on my next trip to California. I was not disappointed. Sobon had a nice selection of Zinfandel wines. They were all delicious.
