About
A 40-foot sculpture of little red wagons and a wall crafted from the soil of four distinct vineyards set the tone for the MacPhail Tasting Lounge, where limited release, vineyard designate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are presented in a truly unique environment where everything is recycled, reclaimed or repurposed. Each MacPhail wine is crafted by nature, and nurtured by hand to allow the full expression of the vineyard to grace your glass. A variety of tasting flights featuring wines from the Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley and Anderson Valley are available in seated tastings or by the glass or bottle, to be enjoyed, perhaps, with selections from a featured local artisan cheesemonger. Relax on the patio and join in the conversation about what makes MacPhail, the Barlow and Sonoma County so very unique. And the wagon sculpture? There's a story waiting to be told.

I can't stress enough how great Tom was. We stopped on a whim and weren't planning on staying long but we enjoyed Tom's service and personality so much we lingered for a while and bought some bottles on his amazing recommendations. Alex was great as well though our time with him was limited. I hope you know how special it is to have such great staff. Thank you guys for making our day so memorable and you can be sure we've relayed the word to all our friends.

From fun and funky decor to welcoming staff, this is a "must visit" if you are headed to the Barlow. This s is definitely the best option for tasting in this new commercial village in Sebastopol.

MacPhail had some of the best pinots we had our entire trip! We loved The Barlow. Charlie was awesome and an asset to this tasting room. The tasting room is super cute, loved the wagons. We purchased 2 bottles to take home. We will definitely stop again when we are back in the area.

A great tasting room and amazing staff. Despite the torrential rain and leaks they stayed open just for us. The wines are always fantastic, some of our favorite Pinot Noirs!! We recommend a visit not just to MacPhail but the Barlow space in general!

Hi Steph, Thank you so much for the great feedback! It was our pleasure to brave the rain to host your group. We were impressed that you were still able to get to our Tasting Lounge, and we had a great time with you. We're here for you anytime and look forward to future visits. It's great to hear that you are also a fan of our neighbors here at The Barlow, we love it here! In the meantime, keep enjoying that MacPhail Pinot Noir!

Took my cousin from British Columbia to test wines here in the Barlow. We enjoyed a leisurely late afternoon tasting under the guidance of Colin who shared his knowledge about the wines and the winery. Absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend a visit to Mc Phail.

My husband has been searching for his perfect Chardonnay while we are in wine country. Brad and Susan educated us to what makes a wine buttery and oaky. Besides tasting their wines; they made other recommendations for us to visit.

What a fun place -- well done and good wines. We had a wonderful server who was passionate about the wines and it was a very pleasant place to visit while in the Barlow area.

My wife and I visited the tasting room and tried 6 different pinot Noirs from 4 different terriors, and from a couple of different vintages. We got a chance to taste the difference, side by side, between different vineyards which was a cool experience. This is a very educational, in addition to flavorful, tasting.

Indeed the focus is on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. We took the mostly Pinot Noir tasting and we were definitely not disdained. First the atmosphere is very pleasant, sufficient space, comfortable seating, and experienced host. Lauren took all the time, explained the wines very well, and went on to expand our tasting based on our likings of specific wines. The experience was so pleasant and professional that we decided to join their Red Wagon Wine Society. This tasting location is recommended for connaisseurs, especially if you like Pinot Noir.
