Who has not heard of Gallo. The tasting room is not longer open to the public in Sonoma but you can get Gallo's wines in most major bottle shops and grocery stores.
SoloRosa is the only New World winery devoted exclusively to dry rosé, arguably the most versatile of all wines. With the exception of our Late Harvest rosé, which is the only such wine in the New World, our wines are bone dry and made from Sangiovese, Syrah, and Merlot.
Sourced exclusively from Estate-owned Knights Valley vineyards, Anakota is a collection of single vineyard, single varietal Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon wines that exemplify the rustic elegance and spirit of Sonoma County’s Mount St. Helena. Situated in the flanks and foothills of Mount St. Helena, each mountain vineyard is brought to life as stressed vines struggle with rocky soils and challenging climatic conditions to create small, intensely flavored berries.
A great little winery with an inspirational story about the winemakers. They make a huge selection of wines, literally dozens of wines. They rotate which wines they taste, but I think we still tasted quite a few (about 6 or 7). All of the wines were really solid and reasonably priced. It was just a little overwhelming. I'd like to see them focus in on their best wines and invest the extra TLC there.
The tasting was a blast, the guy behind the counter was knowledgeable and funny. Why can't all tasting rooms have this kind of service? He listened to what we said and altered our tasting to fit our palate. Excellent service.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Lovely patio. Terrific events. They have a fantastic patio for sipping wines and catching up with family or friends. It's a very nice photo op, and their two cutie dogs wander around looking for new friends.
Castle Vineyards & Winery was acquired in 2006 by John and Kathleen Sweazey, who combine years of passionate wine interest and experience with their success in small business enterprises. In pursuit of a new wine business venture, production of Castle wines has ceased so that the Sweazey’s may carry out their dream and focus on their new winery, Anaba. Anaba Wines has a similar focus on Rhone and Burgundian varietals and a continuing commitment to high quality wines and grape sources.
A great choice for Healdsburg. The area is known for it's Zins and you'll find many decent wines at Mauritson. The tasting is free to Visa Signature card holders. The tasting room isn't terribly fancy but it's nice and there's an outdoor area for warmer days. The staff was quite friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Landmark offers a gorgeous but relaxed setting to sample their wines. It really is a beautiful winery. Gracious, welcoming, picturesque and some darn good wines. Now that is a combination that can't be beat!
The diverse geology of Sonoma County and its topography have made it the ideal location to make world class wine for years but the grapes that are most often associated with the region have been Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Zinfandel to name a few. Super Sonoman Wine brings you another choice.
