What a hidden gem off the beaten path! As I was searching for wineries in Sonoma, I came across the website for Moondance Cellars. I was intrigued by the idea of tasting wine while visiting with horses and dogs. My partner was equally excited by the opportunity to explore a few stellar classic cars. Our expectations were met and exceeded! David and Priscilla are a husband/wife duo who have been making wine on their own terms, using both standard and innovative techniques. They have a variety of whites (chardonnay) and reds (pinot noir, merlot, cabernet sauvignon). There was not a single wine that I did not enjoy. My two favorites were the pinot and cab. During the tasting, David explained his whole process to us, including the history of Moondance. While he was speaking with us, it was clear that his sole focus was on us, and he wanted to get to know us. After the wine tasting, David gave us an extra pour and gave us a tour of the property. We were able to say hello to Teddy (a horse) and explore several classic cars. It felt like a home away from home.

Visiting Moondance Cellars was spectacular. I cannot recommend it more highly. We are going home members of Moondance's Wine Club so that we can enjoy David and Priscilla's wine year round. Moondance is absolutely worth a visit. Thank you to David and Priscilla!

The winemakers and owners of Moondance Cellars, Priscilla and David Cohen, are absolutely lovely hosts!

We spent a beautiful afternoon on their property, learning about their wine, their pets, and David's classic car restoration projects. And, the wine is amazing!

Moondance Cellars is a unique and special part of Sebastopol in Sonoma County, I would highly recommend calling and reserving the picnic table for your next wine tasting trip!

Owners Dave and Priscilla were wonderful and engaging hosts. Small boutique winery. Fantastic wines. I joined their wine club on the spot and look forward to joining them for at least one event a year.

I wasn’t sure what to expect driving into Moondance. It looks more like a farm than a vineyard. They have a nice dog and a mini horse roaming the grounds. It was very chill. Priscilla was great to talk to and the wines were good.

Sadly we didn't get to meet Dave's wife as she was away when we visited. From reading the other reviews its the only thing we missed. My girlfriend and I were on a day trip and visiting Moondance. Our guide called Dave on the way and he welcomed us in 45 mins or so later. I forget Dave's dogs name but the dog was great. The wine was even better. I'd call it outstanding. And if you really want to be impressed ask to see the cars.

We have been enjoying David's wines for many years in three different tasting rooms. Now they pour in their backyard, so please don't just pop in. Call for an appointment and then belly up to the 4 stool tasting bar. Either David or Priscilla will share their wine and stories. The Sauvignon Blanc bottled under the Orchard Station label is very good especially on a warm day. The last Cab is now sold out, so if you like a wine buy it while you can.

Thank you Susan! It was wonderful to visit with you and Jess as it always is. This time, a lovely afternoon under the tree's shade with a little wine, beer (yes it takes alot of beer to make good wine) and friendship.

If you find yourself in Napa / Sonoma, you MUST seek out Moondance Cellars! David and Priscilla are the best hosts ever! Unassuming, NOT pretentious, just great wine and exquisite company. If you're a snooty wine snob, you need not drop in. If you love good wine and a down-home experience, take the short drive to Sebastopol! You won't be disappointed!

This was such a find! Dave and Pricilla made us feel at home and welcome to this out of the way tasting room. Dave's personal touch for making his wine matches his approach of pouring it for us. Super casual atmosphere and some really great small batch wines.
