Iron Horse Vineyards, Sebastopol

#1 of 12 in Things to do in Sebastopol
The winery is best known for its Sparkling Wines, which have been served at the White House for a quarter century. The Chardonnay radiates elegance and Pinot Noir is the winery's rising star wine.

Iron Horse's Tasting Room is outdoors, rustic and renowned for being exceptionally warm, welcoming and "real". Iron Horse is a working winery (rather than a grandiose visitor center), appreciated for offering a genuine experience of wine country.

    Wine tasting can be hit or miss but I can always count on Iron Horse. The view is just spectacular, especially when tasting their sparkling wine flight. The staff has always been friendly and attentiv...  more »

    Went here on September 10th and had a GREAT time! Lucked out to find that every Sunday, April-October, they have a traveling oyster bar! What could be better than standing atop a mountain with spectac...  more »

    Nice tasting, reasonable price for what we got. The staff was very entertaining and informative about their product. The views from the hill top overlooking the vineyards are spectacular.  more »

    We had a fabulous time with Kevin. The sparkling is delicious so we joined their wine club. I wish we lived closer so we could spend more time enjoying their beautiful view..

    The sf Bday party liked the tasting of bubbly and Chardonnay and maybe Pinot. BUT,,, The GPS marker for the Winery was a mile away at the gate. Try to get Google to move it to the actual Winery... "RESERVATION TASTING ONLY TODAY", so ALWAYS CALL AHEAD, people, when on vacation traveling. Especially in the Wine Country. Saw some lovely couples turned away, because they didn't know this Basic Rule of Travel. Listen to 'cal48boy'. The private road is Rough Bumpy Horrible. One lane !! Needs repaving. BAD. The brunette greeter was not friendly today. Google Map Nav shows a second Winery 'Sterling' there, but that is THE OWNER'S HOUSE. Not another winery; Google is so confused! Beware of the horizontal arrow sign pointing RIGHT to first red barn on the Right, as that is not the Winery. CONTINUE STRAIGHT. Ignore that Right pointing arrow on the left side of the lane. There is an oval loop circuit to park in the dirt. Nice view to the East.

    Had a great tasting experience in October with Trey ( our second visit to the winery ) The bubbles are delicious and the view alone is worth the trip. We bought a case and joined the bubble club. (The only wine club we belong to.) Looking forward to our first shipment and to a return visit

    At first I didn't know what to think. The place seemed crowded and a little impersonal. However, once I began my tasting I realized I was wrong. This place is awesome! The views from the tasting area are breathtaking! And the champagne is incredible! The bartenders are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. We were even granted the presence of Lucy the vineyard cat! The champagnes were delicious even for non-champagne drinkers like me! I would definitely recommend this winery.
