  • While having a love for Bordeaux style wines really helps enjoy this winery, the visit is educational as well as enjoyable. Truly more a wine "sensing" than tasting, although several pours are paired,...  more »
  • We found BobDog on Trip Advisor and can tell you the reviews are correct. Tim was a brainiac as far as wine was concerned. We learned so much from our visit. We now know more about wine and our palett...  more »
  • We learned more about wines from Tim than we've learned in 15 years of visiting other Sonoma wineries. Loved the experience, the wines and the beautiful setting. Thanks Tim!

  • Great exotic wines and very friendly hospitality
  • All I can say is WOW!!!!! The drive up is a trip. Be prepared to rough it as parts of the road is not paved, steep and has some tight turns. The winery is worth it. Great view from the road. Saw some deer. We sat and talked wine and tasted for almost 2 hrs. Not fancy, very relaxed and low key. Tim showed us how to really taste the wine. We have lived in No. Calif. for 45 years, (yes we tasted all those years), and now there are about 400+ wineries within a 2 1/2 hr drive and this one is the top!!!! Both in quality and location at 2000 ft. We got tired of the Napa Valley and the attitude of many of the wineries there. We will be repeat visitors to Bob Dog and will be drinking some of the wine at home this weekend!!!!.
  • Exceedingly rare hospitality, incredible wines, amazing experience! Appointment only... which we didn't know, and Tim was gracious and welcoming enough to take us at a moment's notice. We were staying at Ravenridge Cottages, and simply tooling around the area, when we searched for a wine tasting experience that was less about lining up like cattle and drinking as fast as possible to move to the next one... It's a rare opportunity that a winemaker will be so welcoming to chat with you for hours, and offer you a rare glimpse into the wine making process with a complete lack of pretension, welcoming spirit, and gracious attitude. In fact, the rule for BobDog Vineyards (which includes Sky Pine Vineyard selections as well - one vineyard with different types and levels of winemaking) is very simple: "The 3 F's: Food, Family, & Friends. These are not cocktail wines, and are meant to be experienced with food... which Tim was kind enough to supply. The wines really opened up when paired to something, and we ended up buying more bottles than we have, at any winery, in years. One additional thought- for the proprieters of the cottages, we purchased the port dipped in chocolate. I HIGHLY suggest this delightful way to wrap up a dinner party. As you open the package, you see a bottle dipped in chocolate that peels away to reveal the delicious bottle of port. It's incredibly fun, and really unexpected. The drive there is BEAUTIFUL, and to *city folk* adventurous. To anyone that has been to the Luberon, or appreciates and understands the only places worth going have drives that are a bit off the beaten path - it will be a no brainer. It's only about 15 minutes outside of Cloverdale, and you will really enjoy spending the time to sample the wines and chat with the winemakers.... a wonderful family that really reminds me of what I love about the Willamette Valley - families of farmers making juice. If you can make delicious wine without the silly attitude, you are living life better than most, and making it better for others, as well. Thank you so much for being so welcoming. And hug Cabbie for us! =) Pavlov says hi. You guys should be an inspiration and model for other vineyards. Cheers!
