n general, they have EXCELLENT Syrah. Their Syrah easily stand out and I consider it to be really top notch quality. Their Pinot Noir is indeed good and borderline great. I definitely like this place and I would recommend this to anyone.
The young man who hosted our tasting was knowledgeable yet casual and easy to talk to - right up our alley. Really appreciated the time he took to do "compare & contrast" tastings!
Definitely stop in here for a tasting - whether you linger or quickly move on to the wineries, you'll get a nice intro to wines in the region.
Want to love every wine you taste more than the previous one, have a great time chatting with the knowledgeable and fun folks pouring for you. You just might find yourself unable to resist the wine club, and drive away with some affordable wine and the feeling that you've found one awesome Sonoma secret, then Macrostie Winery & Vineyards just might be your place.
Pasterick produces one of the best Syrah I've tried - but that's not the reason to visit the vineyard. People at Pasterick are truly amazing, one-of-a-kind - they greet you like old friends, and you leave feeling like your family just got extended.
Sable Ridge Vineyards released its first wine in 1996 but is clearly on the fast track and becoming something of a cult favorite among its fans. Sable Ridge wines have twice been named Salute to the Arts Peoples' Choice Winery in the annual Sonoma celebration.
Produce limited amounts of hand-crafted wines from the Dry Creek Valley and the Puccioni Ranch. Pucioni Vineyards has been growing grapes and making wine at the Puccioni Ranch since 1904. Pucioni family were one of the last families in Sonoma County to use a mule and a plow.
The tasting experience was very informative. And a little formal. The host takes you into their tasting room and closes the doors for total immersion. The tasting is really all about the wine and educating visitors of the history of the label. Great stop for very classy wine! Not so much for relaxing and lounging.
King Mountain land has never been farmed. Wildlife comes and goes freely with no one to bother them. Small lots, often 200 cases per wine.

Hughes Family Vineyards is a boutique winery producing premium Zinfandel, Syrah, Rose' and Chardonnay wines made exclusively from the grapes grown in our certified organic vineyards in Glen Ellen, California.
