Williams Selyem Winery, Healdsburg
(4.7/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Williams Selyem Winery began as a simple dream of two friends, Ed Selyem and Burt Williams, who pursued weekend winemaking as a hobby in 1979 in a garage in Forestville, California, and made their first commercial vintage in 1981. In less than two decades, Burt and Ed created a cult-status winery of international acclaim. Together they set a new standard for Pinot Noir winemaking in the United States, aligning Sonoma County's Russian River Valley in the firmament of the best winegrowing regions of the world.

Today, the winery and winemaker Bob Cabral carefully executes the Williams Selyem philosophy of "respecting the juice." From fermentation to bottling, including the no pumping and filter-free methods, the winemakers use these processes to ensure that the quality of the wine is not compromised.

  • Why 5 Stars? Selyem & their employees care about what they do & how they treat their customers. If you enjoy an interaction with your wine tasting, then you'll enjoy this place. Besides a great product, WS gives 1 on 1 attention to their customers. Requires an appointment!
  • Wow, if you ever get a chance, go. I can't say enough about both the wine and the experience provided by Michael, our educator. Amazing!
