John Tyler Wines

This is a small and unassuming tasting room with really friendly and welcoming employees. The bar was standing room only but we were quickly greeted and well taken care of. The wines are INSANELY amazing and fairly priced.
A reserve tasting is $20 and they will refund half of your tasting fee if you purchase a few bottles -- I don't like this new trend of not refunding your tasting fee with purchase, but at least you get $10 back.

Field Stone Winery& Vineyard

An intimate and casual tasting room that's hidden behind rows of wine walk in through double barn doors at this historic winery that is easy to miss on 128 unless you're looking for it. About the only thing it's missing is a commanding view of the surrounding valley, but once you sample the wines made from the 100+ year old vines that remain on one part of the property, you'll quickly forget about it.

J Wine Company

A classy place to taste the bubbly, sample super-gourmet treats, take a tour, or join a class, J specializes in sparkling wine and has a dazzling showroom for visitors. Check out the gardens, drink in the view, and be ready for plenty of tiny bubbles.

Brogan Cellars

What a neat little Wine. Reminds me very much of a simple beautiful Burgundy from France.

This is a wine project by Margaret Wierenga who's father owns Williams Selyem wines. I have heard they make a pretty good pinot themselves.

The wine has beautiful aromas of Cherries and Coca Cola. On the palate comes strawberry jam with hints of clove. The wine has a beautiful lingering finish.

Kendal-Jackson Winery

A total of 6 tasters were brought out as well as one dessert - all were delicious. This normally runs you $30 per person but we were given a $10 off coupon so each it ended up being $20 per person. Even at $30 per person, it was a really good deal and at $20 was a steal! I'd definitely recommend this pairing to anyone who wants to sit down and take wine tasting to the next level. Usually we drink wine with food so it's really neat to get ideas on what to pair these great wines with.

Chateau Diana

The gentleman in the tasting room, Scott, was friendly, knowledgeable and just nice to be around making our visit even better. He told us the tasting room have been open only three weeks which was hard to believe given the fabulous design, product displays and sense of organization. Oh dog friendly too!

Fog Crest Vineyard

Following a lifelong fascination for food and wine, James and Rosalind Manoogian established Fog Crest Vineyard in 1998 in the Russian River Valley area of Sonoma County, California. As a restaurateur in San Francisco, James had had close proximity to the great wine-growing regions surrounding the city, and it allowed he and his wife to become knowledgeable about wine, how it accompanied fine dining, and where each varietal excelled locally. Today, Fog Crest Vineyard produces less than 2,500 cases annually of limited production, vineyard-designate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that show off the classic terrior of this small Russian River Valley vineyard.

SL Cellars

SL Cellars is one of the smaller wineries in the Sonoma Valley and just sits right off of the 12. SL is an old school house transformed into a Wine Tasting Room. It has a nice come here and sit for a while feels and a nice little park area that you can go to for a light lunch. SL Cellars specializes in Sparkling Wine. They had some of the betters ones I tasted this weekend. The had an almond and raspberry sparkling wine that is worth the stop and tasting.
