Sobon EstateSobon Estate

Sobon Estate -- and its sister winery Shenandoah Vineyards -- are family-owned wineries with a 32-year reputation for producing the best possible wines using low-yield viticulture and minimum intervention wine making techniques. We emphasize high fruit and low tannins, and the wines are made with our own sustainably-grown grapes. They reflect the unique Shenandoah Valley terroir, resulting in a richness and intensity rarely seen elsewhere. Award-winning Sobon wines are distributed nationally.

Sobon Estate is site of the original historic D'Agostini Winery, one of the oldest in the state. This winery is CA Historic Landmark #762.

Leon & Shirley purchased the historic winery in 1989, added a Free Museum of Local History and retained the old vine Zinfandel. Other vineyards have been replanted with the best varieties and clones. The Sobon Estate label launched the estate line of wines for the Sobon Family -- the best wines from their own grapes. These include Rhone varietals, vineyard designated Zinfandels, and tasting room-only dessert wines.
