We stopped in 20 minutes before tasting time ended and were grateful that for a reduced fee they were willing to let us taste two wines, and off of either the standard or reserve menu. That tasting went fast, however, as the young, inexperienced woman they had serve us made us pay up front and then spent no time at... More

Considering the winery is meant to be one of the oldest and experienced in Somoma, it seems to have lost it's touch. Our hostess seems disinterested in speaking about the wine or pairing wine with food- only a few phrases to describe each wine. it was very basic information which we could have read right off the sheet ourselves. This... More

This chocolate and wine tasting was SPECTACULAR!!! A great value for the $30 fee. Our hostess, Julie, was so personable and very knowledgeable, both about the wines and the history of the winery. We lucked out that instead of having the maximum 10 participants, only my friend and I were in attendance. Score!!! Enjoyed all the wines offered, and the... More

This was an interesting counterpoint to our other tour which was the Hess Collection. Sebastiani offered a more informative tour, but it seemed like a winery dropped into a downtown location . Not very picturesque. The staff were friendly , but seemed a little rushed. I had booked our tasting online and they never could end up finding it. Overall... More

Stopped here as part of a City Sightseeing San Francisco day trip. Other wineries on the tour were more inviting & had friendlier staff and offered more wines. Staff were more interested in showing off the large wine barrels than actually serving the tastings. Nice setting & grounds though.

We stopped in for a tasting and the grounds are beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful! I ended up buying a couple of their 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon's, a Robert's Vineyard 2011 Pinot Noir and a 2012 Eye of the Swan Rose'. May not be a lot but I was happy with my purchase.

Bob was such a great host. We really enjoyed his stories, helpfulness and charming attitude. Learned about how to taste wine and experienced the difference in taste before and after having cheese made locally. Wonderful! We arrived early and they were very accommodating and set up the tastings for us in a private room. Bob also suggested some other wonderful... More
