It is impressive, from the architecture to the wines. It was quite hard to find as it doesn't have any sign (on purpose). Private formal tour and tasting. I loved the attention to the detail: it had our names printed on a display, all organized on a table where the wines were placed in order of tasting as well as... More

My fiancé and I were invited to a tasting and tour by friends who are members of this winery's club. It is the only way to get an appointment for a tasting. We had been to two additional wineries by the time we visited Williams Selyem. The prior two wineries were informal and relaxed. This was definitely a more formal... More

This is a private tasting of mostly Pinot Noirs - but they also do a Chenin Blanc & a Port. I've never been a PN fan - but I am now. Katie Murphy Slater guided us through the tasting & the winery. She was charming as well as amazing in her knowledge about the wines. We were with her for... More

Williams Selyam is a storied producer of Pinot Noir in what some consider California's "Grand Cru" wine region. The tasting salon provides seated tasting by appointment. We we met by our host Katie, and treated to a generous line-up of current release wines, all with distinctive characteristics and remarkable flavors. Our host was extremely knowlegeable and gave us a walking... More

What a welcome we received! This winery does tasting by appointment only and how special. They have reputation of being the best Pinot noir makers around, and I heartily concur. Part of the tasting involves a tour of the winery, and the whole thing takes 90 minutes. Philippe greeted us with a smile near the parking lot and we entered... More

What's not to like about this wonderful winery experience? Our host, Philipe, was incredibly accommodating, keeping our group of 4 entertained throughout the entire visit. The wines are fabulous and really display the differences between the different terroirs in which they are grown. The facilities are also equally spectacular, as easy on the eyes as the wines are on the... More

Inside a new and dramatic building that could have been featured in Architectural Digest resides our new favorite pinot producer. Yes, you can sample some delicious chards and zin but the highlight here are single vineyard pinot noirs. They are simply devine. The tasting was intimate and conducted by a very affable and knowledgeable staff member. But those pinots simply... More
