Time of year
This tasting room on "the main drag" in features some good wine and a small exhibit of photographic art with some very nice pieces.
Our last stop on the Route 116 tour. So very pleased they were open after 4pm. We met Joelle at the bar and she told us about the winery and her family. She gave us a few little nosh bites of goat cheese with a fig jam - very yummy. Seriously impressed with the sweetheart…
It's so hard to choose where to visit when time and budget is limited. We chose Occidental Rd because the store front tasting room in Sebastopol was close to us and the tasting fee was reasonable. I personally did not like their Sauvignon Blanc or Rose. Their 2 Pinots on offer…
Stopped in while passing through. the Pinot was outstanding. Friendly helpful lady at the counter. They also do a very good Syrah, we bought one, and 6 of the Pinot.
They are right off the highway in a store front in Sonoma. Not excited about any of the wines - and a little pressure to join the wine club. Can't really recommend.
