So many things to try! Second stop of tthe day and we had to pace ourselves. They had barrel tastings, followed by a blind tasting and then more in the actual tasting room during the Winter Wineland event. They were serving a balsamic and bleu cheese balsamic sandwich but the highlight was truly the white port. Some staff was better... More

I was a Sunce Wine club member until I started drinking more of the 2009 vintage! All are crap! Heavy sediment, cloudy in the glass and just not drinkable! I had 3 mixed cases and selectively dumping them down the drain! The 2009 Old Clone Zin is by far the worst!

This experience was delightful for a newbie to wine. The tasting room employees made it feel less intimidating and everyone found a winner wine they loved. We picnic'd on the patio and finished off some wine and had to go back again :)

Myself and my wife visited the Sunce Winery on the first Saturday in December. We had visited over a dozen wineries in our 5 day trip in Napa and Sonoma counties. This was by far the most friendliest winery we visited. The wines were great and we were able to buy them and have them shipped for very reasonable prices.... More

This is a great winery to visit. The tasting room is relatively small, so on a busy weekend you may have to wait for your next pour, but it's worth the wait. The winemaker is from Croatia and does a great job of producing very unusual varietals and blends you won't find anywhere else (as well as the "standards" like... More

This a small and friendly venue which we liked. Very intimate with many wine offerings. This is a fun place to visit and you may find some wines that strike your palate just right. But I got the impression they would benefit from some focus. As in "let's make this great" instead of "let's make these good". Worth a stop... More

My close friend first took me here a couple of years ago, and I come back every time I'm in Sonoma. They had a wide selection of wine, and I haven't had a bad one, ever. The staff is very friendly. We came on Saturday, and they said they were having a barrel tasting, and they took us right over.... More

We discovered this winery 3 or 4 years ago, and have continued to enjoy it - we even joined their wine club! The winemaker is from Croatia, and has an almost playful attitude about the varietals and blends he uses. For example, he is one of the few winemakers left who still bottles a pure Carignane (once, pre-Prohibition, the most-planted... More

We were lucky enough to come in when the owner was working the tasting room. She was very knowledgable and we enjoyed good conversation. Wines were very good, especially the Cabernet.
