Overall bummed took the time to stop when was limited on time and so many other options to experience.
Jan 2020 • Business
Atmosphere was a bit cold and honestly was a bit dirty inside. Tasting experience was pretty surface level. Wine was produced off site at a different location but was really looking for a higher quality experience and wine. Overall bummed took the time to stop when was limited on time and so many other options to experience.

Loved our Discovery Wine and Food Pairing experience!
Jun 2018 • Couples
When I researched wineries for our recent trip to the Healdsburg area, I was immediately drawn to Amista's wine and food pairing because the food sounded special while not offering over-the-top, unusual bites that we would not make or eat at home. We made Amista the first winery stop of our trip.
When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and seated at a table outside that was set to welcome my husband and me. Tammy took such great care of us! and we enjoyed chatting with her very much.
The food pairing was lovely and delicious! Shrimp, meatball, salmon, chocolate, etc.. and the wines were great. The best part was experiencing wine that was perfectly suited to foods we love. The big surprise was when I tried the Illusion dessert wine with dark chocolate and cranberries. I do not care for sweet wine, but this wine was fruity and delightful with the chocolate. We made it one of our purchases from Amista and I can't wait to share it with our (also not sweet wine lover) friends, along with dark chocolate, of course! We took our time and enjoyed the peaceful view, and when we finished we walked 'the loop' around the pretty vineyards. It was a lovely experience from beginning to end, and we will visit Amista again on our next visit to the area.

Barbara, we are pleased you enjoyed our wine and food pairing. I especially loved hearing that we succeeded in creating pairings that real people would make at home. We hope you have fun sharing Ilusión and dark chocolate with your friends.

Put this winery on your must see list!
May 2018 • Friends
What a great experience! Lovely location, friendly staff who were also very knowledgeable about their wines, and good wines. Small winery that specializes in sparkling wines, of which my group bought many.

Great Zins in a beautiful setting
Jan 2018 • Couples
We visited during the Winter WINEland weekend, January 13-14, 2018, and they were pouring delicious zins from 2013, 2014, 2015 plus some other wines. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and it is a beautiful winery. Other wineries visited and enjoyed over the weekend: J. Rickards, Papapietro Perry, West, Zichichi, Martorana, Mill Creek, Armida, and Porter Creek. And we stayed once again in our favorite Glen Ellen at our favorite Jack London Lodge and gratefully they survived the October wildfires and are doing well. Do not be afraid to visit the wine country. It's as wonderful as ever!

Pretty and friendly winery
Apr 2017 • Couples
We were tasting along Dry Creek for a recent vacation. We weren't familiar with the Amista vineyards, but we were drawn in by the long driveway leading to the attractive building.
Our pouring host was so friendly and personable. We tried several Zinfandels, a Cab, and a really nice port.
The winery has a very friendly mascot. The focal point is the tasting bar--there's not a lot of items for sale or decorations as the main focus are the Amista wines.

Good experience
Feb 2017 • Couples
Like the previous reviewer, this also was our last stop of the day and we are glad we did. We were drawn in by the signs promising bubbly and chocolate. We did a Zin and chocolate tasting along with some tasting of Syrah and bubbly. The tasting room is very large and dog friendly. We enjoyed the tasting and speaking with the staff. Their is a nice covered area outside that would be good for a picnic.

Last stop and worth it!
Dec 2016 • Couples
Last winery of the day for us and dogs. Sometimes the last tasting is questionable. Your palate is shot from so many wines and purchases can be iffy at best, but the was no fluke or bad decision. We made a great decision to stop and we're lucky to come upon such lovely fun wines.

After two days of tasting.....this is our first wine club sign up of the trip! Their wines were good and their club a great deal. Thanks to them for all the warm and comfy feel we got from the winery and the people there!

Beautiful location

Beautifully kept farm building renovated into a large tasting room. Tasting Room staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Stills and sparkling are to die for. Must visit when in wine country.

Worst experience in our three days in Sonoma Valley!
Oct 2016 • Couples
This was our 25th year going to Sonoma Wineries. We love Sparkling wines and were members of Amista Vineyards for 2 years. We dropped the wine club, because the wines were not consistent and priced very high for the quality. . I had been reading before our recent visit about their sparkling red and decided to give them a second try. Big mistake!!!! We stopped on Saturday October 15th for a tastin , and found the sparkling red was the only sparkling that we were served that we liked. We were then told we could only buy 1 bottle if we signed up again for the wine club, and we would still need to pay the $30 dollars fee for the tasting. That would mean a commitment of 6 bottle, 3 times a year, without any guarantee, we would get the 1 sparkling wine we wanted. NO THANKS!
Every other winery we visited that day charged no more the $!5 for their tasting fee that was always waved if we bought a bottle of wine. We had amazing tastings at Icarian Winery, Lambert Bridge ,Iron Horse, and J Ricards. Not so much at Amista Vineyards. The person giving our tasting was rude and said the owners would not wave the tasting fee ever.
This winery will never have our business again. We tasted amazing sparkling wines the next day at 2 vineyards within a 15 minute drive, that did not charge us for the tasting after we bought their sparkling wine. We also were treated to a pleasant tasting experience. If you want sparkling wine, without signing up for their club, head elsewhere. These wines are overpriced, and the tasting experience is terrible!!!!!
