  • This winery was a great experience. We did a barrel tour, which included a tasting and a tour of the grounds that lasted 1.5 hours. This winery has an amazing history and story, going back to their founder in the mid 1800's. Jim was our tour guide, and we were lucky to have him. He was very knowledgeable and engaging, and certainly did not rush through the tour (it seems he has a reputation for long tours based on the jokes from his manager). We loved the in depth tour, and overall it was a great value. The wines were good too.
  • Very RUDE! We drove from Sacramento to the winery to do some wine tasting, and when we arrived at the counter, I asked the server the cost of wine tasting and if we bought a bottle would the tasting fee be waved. She replied yes and as I started to ask for a wine list, still speaking to her.... she just walked away and left me speechless. So we walked out, no way were we giving them ANY of our money. Very unprofessional and rude!!!
  • Awesome experience! The Bubble Lounge is incredible. Diane is a great hostess. Amazing history here.
  • Glad to see that they kept the historical grounds in tact and the fires did not destroy the place..great wines
  • The grounds and the ambience are a lot of fun. They have some places to sit outside and a lot of photographic scenery. Unfortunately I was not. Fan of the wines really. Not the worst I've had of course but for the price there are better wines out there.

Where to stay in Sonoma

Prices for accommodations in Sonoma are often high. The hotels on or near the town square offer an unbeatable location for experiencing the city's many cultural delights, but you'll pay extra for the convenience. Properties located farther out are more economical and quiet, and provide easy access to Sonoma's stunning countryside. If you are planning a longer holiday, consider booking a vacation rental that feels like a home away from home.
