Fine dining in Amador County’s Plymouth? I would have never considered driving 45 minutes to Plymouth for dinner, but that was before I ventured into Taste Restaurant.

Holly’s Hill: Sommelier's choice for white wines

Holly’s Hill: Sommelier's choice  for white wines

El Dorado’s wine area is known for having great Zinfandels, Mourvedres and other reds. But what is out there for the white wine lover? A visit to Holly’s Hill Winery may be just what you need to stock your wine fridge.  

“These are the first legit white wines I’ve run into,” said Sandford Wragg, sommelier and wine buyer for Tuli Bistro in Sacramento. “They are solid. They are dry. They don’t over power things. I can think of food I can eat with them. Their Roussanne had fruit to it, yet it was still dry.”

Wragg enjoyed both the winery's Roussanne and Viognier. He says Holly’s Hill has a different take on things than some of the other wineries, but their philosophy is similar to Sierra Vista Winery.
