Hand Selected Vineyards,

Award Winning Wines

Jeff travels throughout California to find just the right grapes for his vineyard designated wines. The winery produces 22 different red varietals from 9 appellations.

We produce balanced wines that can be enjoyed in their youth, but will also age and become more complex with time. Our wines share a theme of fresh fruit reflective of the varietal flavors inherent in the grape.

The first time I met Jeff was at Pokerville market in Plymouth. He was in line ahead of me and noticed I was buying some of his wine. So he slipped the bottle on his side of the belt and bought it for me. Through it all, that's the kind of guy he is.... he's made wine for a lot... More

Jeff Runquist is the best winemaker in the area. He does not grow his own so he can use the grapes he wants. Their Cab Fanc is very good.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I recently visited the wine country for the Crush weekend and visited 11 wineries in 2 days. Time to give my liver a rest.... This was one of the better ones. A pleasant and spacious tasting room, friendly staff and pretty good wine. We bought one, Aglianico I believe, which we have... More

Every person I spoke to about Plymouth wineries recommended Runquist. I normally avoid wineries located right on the highway because many of them rely upon easy tourist traffic rather than quality wine, but Runquist is not one of those places. The wine maker sources his grapes from several appelations rather than splitting his time between farming and wine making. We... More

Wines are always top notch. I have never tried a Jeff Runquist wine that wasn't good. Love it and highly recommend it. The Runquist Cooper Barbera is my all-time favorite.

Maybe I was spoiled by a recent napa experience and some great vineyards in the area (like Cooper) but I found the experience to be just ok. I did enjoy the wine, for sure - no question about it some nice blends available. Friendly helpful staff, yes. There is just something about a winery that produces and processes it own... More

A friend had to leave me on this winery, knowing that I was coming to the gold country. I got there five minutes before closing, but they accommodated me and my friend unhesitatingly. we tasted six ones in less than 20 minutes or impressed by all of them, and thrilled by a couple. My favorite was what they call Primitivo.... More

We arrived and the exterior of the building was very nice, and the parking lot was packed. We walked in and were told with a blank stare from the man pouring, "If you don't want red wine, you might as well go someplace else down the road" Without any suggestions of course. Rude! We did! And found a comfortable kind... More
