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.

  • Stopped to taste the sparking wines. We're not huge fans of any sparkling wines but we're able to find one we liked enough to purchase a bottle for NYEve. They were very busy and nice enough but hard ...  more »

  • We love to start our day of tasting at Iron Horse. Starting the day with sparkling wines and a view of the Russian River Valley is a great way to start the day!  more »
  • Didn't have an appointment, but they got us in. I did the Chardonnay wines and hub did the Sparkling wines. Was great. Scenery was awesome. Had a great time. Left w/some wine. Highly recommend. Make a reservation.
  • Awesome! Period! Bubbly, Bubbly, Bubbly! Really good Pinot Noir and Chardonnay too! Views, staff and overall experience are phenomenal! Have fun as you will totally enjoy! Cheers!
  • 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..
  • Has become pretentious requiring a reservation and $25 tasting free not waived with purchase. Gazebo is for wine club members only. Not the greatest for the current price. No tatting room, just a dusry parking lot albeit with a beautiful view.
  • 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.
