Totally agree with previous post! This is a hidden gem and going there was one of our highlights during our trip to Sonoma! Dave and Peter took such great care of us and really knew about the wine and history.

We went to this winery as we had drunk a bottle of Ravenswood back in the UK!! It is located up in the hills just out of Sonoma centre. The tasting room is quite small, in comparison to some of the larger wineries in the area, but there was a real buzz about the place and a really nice friendly... More

Almost don't want to review Ravenswood in order to keep it a secret. Lovely little tasting room tucked up into a hillside with an even more lovely patio looking out over the valley. Casual atmosphere plus a delightful range of tasty Zins. Ravenswood will now be one of our go-to's whenever we visit Wine Country and need a quiet (and... More

We dropped into Ravenswood to pass some time before meeting friends at a more popular nearby winery, but Ravenswood turned out to be a great stop. We were seated in adirondack chairs in the shade behind the tasting room, and while the view wasnt superb, it was nice. And having the tastings poured outside was really pleasant. It was comfortable,... More

Extremely attentive staff made everyone feel special. Wines were excellent with Zinfandels a specialty. Four of us making this tour agreed that Ravenswood was the best! We purchased the most wine here and joined their wine club. If you like Red wine especially Zinfandel this is the place to go.

This winery is laid back and wonderful! If you are looking for something a little less "touristy," this is your spot. The staff is incredible, offering an amazing experience. Compared to other wineries, we felt at home while tasting at Ravenswood. The value for the amazing wine is incomparable!

We're big fans of Ravenswood. It was actually the first winery my now husband took me to when we first began dating. Unlike some other spots in Sonoma/Napa, the staff is super friendly. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and give you quite a few more pours than are included in their tasting. Pours are... More

Tom took us for a tour of the winery. The place is beautiful and pristine. The tour started with a cleansing white wine. I am a newbie, so he explained the vines, their characteristics, how and why the Merlot-s and Zinfandels were planted where they were. As we walked around, he poured us rose, merlot and zinfandel. After explaining the... More

We enjoyed Ravenswood and our host was very knowledgeable and generous. They also had some very nice things in their gift shop. But the tasting room and settings were not our favoirites.

A simple, small tasting room with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Some nice wines, especially the Zinfandels. Picturesque surroundings especially if you sit outdoors. Recommended.
