I found that the person who was administering our tasting was a little cocky and rude. We had a complimentary tasting pass from our B&B but it was almost like he was trying to dissuade us from tasting by first telling us that tastings are $18 for 5, then acting a little rude when we produced the pass. Overall the... More

We have enjoyed tasting at their tasting room. We also very much like their cabernet sauvignon wine. We have purchased some wine. Relatives also like the wine and we have had very nice dinners paired with Ravenswood Winery wines at their home. As such, its a very good winery to go to as its one to enjoy when visiting, but...

I truly enjoyed this wine tasting/tour as it gave our group the opportunity to not only try great wines, but learn about the process. We also had the opportunity to walk through a couple of the vineyards which doesn't happen at many places. Our tour guide was personable and extremely knowledgeable in the process of wine making which made the... More

There were 8 in our group (a surprise 50th) and another couple signed up for a private tasting and learn to blend your own wine. Our guide was Peter, a delightful, funny, knowledgeable guide who took us through the art of blending to the bottling of our own blend. Each attendee goes home with a bottle they have blended, a...

We came here on a vacation. Views and property were nice. There was a view of a valley and hillside. The tasting was reasonable at $15. Great Zins and our wine guy, Ben was fantastic. Generous pours and friendly as well as informative. We tasted while sitting on Adirondack chairs overlooking the vines. Nice experience, especially if you like the... More

The roads leading to the winery and surrounding areas are beautiful indeed and the tasting area is warm and nice. It was the first stop for us on a wine tasting trail and we got to taste several of their wines. They were generous about the tasting and the staff were friendly and informative. They are known for their zins... More

Oh My Goodness!! I went with a group of 20 friends to Ravenswood for a wine blending experience! This was set up in advance, of course, due to the size of our group. They had us in a wonderful private room apart from the main tasting room. It was full of casks with tables set beautifully for us. Our host,... More

This was the final stop on our Goodtime Touring bike tour, and it was so much fun. The vibe is really casual and upbeat. Our server, Peter, was really enthusiastic and engaging! I loved the experience and their Zins are fantastic!

I've been to Ravenswood in the past a few times so while traveling as part of a group this time, I "dragged" everyone here. Glad to say that everyone enjoyed the wine and sitting out on the hill, This place is a winner. I wish they offer even more of their Zins back in Ohio. Well worth a visit.

Visited this winery on a limo winery tour through Sonoma, this place was so friendly and the wines were great and reasonably priced so we became wine club members. The winery itself has two tasting areas indoors, and then a patio outdoors where one can taste. You can bring your own food to picnic - members can use a VIP... More
