Loxton Winery is a very small but quality winery in Glen Ellen. A must stop, as we have done for years, when visiting the Sonoma Valley. Chris Loxton only sells his wines from the winery and they are wonderful. Stop by and say hello to...More
We stopped in as my partner loves Syrah, and we weren't disappointed. The winemaker himself did our tasting session and it was fascinating to hear about his journey from Australia to his winery today. The wines were delicious, and it was so interesting to see...More

I believe it was $15 per person and you had 4 different wine tastings. They forgive the charge if you buy a bottle of wine. Now we were on a platypus tour bus 🚌 so I don't know if the policy differs for drop ins. Chris, the owner, was extremely interesting and informative. He even took us outside to the vineyard and gave a little talk. I don't think you will be disappointed in the wine or instruction!
